About FLOATING POINT

FLOATING POINT is the home of Interaction designer / creative coder Brendan Oliver and I am based in Nottingham UK.

After graduating with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Product Design, having my SnoBike concept patented and featured in the Telegraph newspaper and being offered a place on Tomorrow’s World (remember that?) I moved into Web Design back in 2001.

Using technology as a creative tool I have continued to design and develop websites since then. I take a agnostic approach to technology, selecting technologies as the most appropriate tool for the task and learning continuously along the way.

I have worked with clients large and small, from Multi-national brands as part of a team for Advertising agencies, PLC companies to working directly with SMEs in my local area.

I’ve been lucky enough to create digital work outside of the web, producing Interactive applications for BBC Big Screens, Glastonbury Festival, interactive artwork for organisations such as FutureEverything, the V&A and Fiber Festival Amsterdam. I have also  created 3D printed sculptures from real-time data from 2014 FIFA World Cup matches.

I’m a team player, a communicator and I get stuff done. If you have a project you would like to discuss please contact me.
