What we did for Bletchley Park at GFN May 2011

Bletchley Park, a codebreaking centre and home to the first computer, is one of the three causes Good for Nothing supported at our most recent event in May. A team of about 20 strategists, web developers, designers and photographers worked hard over the weekend to help raise awareness of this historic park.

What they wanted:

  • Find innovative ways to celebrated Bletchley Park's past digitally
  • Build a vision of a positive future to attract corporate investment
Here’s a remarkable illustration by Chris from Scriberia of all of the thinking and work that was done by the Bletchley Park team:
