Immersing myself in virtual / augmented reality in South Korea

Mylo Kaye Dreamr South Korea

As I sat back on my fight home and relax with a glass of wine, I have no short than 11 hours to reflect on my past seven days in South Korea. My mission and objective to visit South Korea were to explore the world of tech, virtual reality and augmented reality, and I’ve done just that. I had the great pleasure of visiting a fantastic co-working space in Gangnam; the super-high-tech building was created by Hyundai, the motor car company and aimed at start-ups, which if you’re a start-up in South Korea is probably centred around tech. The building was the epitome of what a co-working space should be. Open bright spaces in communal areas where you can share experiences with lunch, yoga room and massage chairs on every floor for when you’re feeling stressed, creating a start-up is usually stressful, right? What’s unique in this co-working space is the multitude of spaces that are used for more specific work, a testing lab for testing apps on every phone going, 3D printing studio and photography studio. All these facilities are available to the residents at no extra charge. Humbled to attend the ROK-UK Creative Industries Forum 2017 I had

Dreamr tackles Manchester’s hidden homeless

The recently featured article in the Manchester Evening News celebrated the work of Simply Be, Jacamo and Jack & Jones, Boohoo and, of course, my app development agency, Dreamr. Supported by Hollyoaks stars Jazmine Franks and Ashley Taylor Dawson, the latest Mustard Tree campaign to raise money for the Manchester homelessness brought in £70,000 worth of clothes to be modeled and sold at Ziferblat on Saturday, February 13 February. Collecting donations for Mustard Tree and supporting the homeless in Manchester, Dreamr Head of Business and Head of Aspiration, Jack & Lynne worked relentlessly to call upon Dreamr clients and associates to help reach the impressive £70,000 total. Mylo Kaye, Dreamr Co-Founder said, “I’m proud of not only our customers but the Dreamr team who pulled out all the stops in ensuring the Mustard Tree charity received a huge donation. Dreamr’s dedication to supporting local causes has meant our clients such as Sole Supplier, Cameo Launch also contributed. This will make an enormous difference to the ever growing issue of homelessness in Manchester, which year on year increases, despite Council budget cuts.”

Four day week and why you should adopt it

Four day week, is it productive? Four day week, what is it? When I started out in business a few years ago, I wanted teams of people working as much as possible to get more done. Unfourtnetly you can only get so much out of one person, never mind my 13 staff. Henry Ford first proposed the idea of a 8 hour day back in the 1900’s, his staff typically worked around 14 hours a day. He found, however that by working fewer hours, his staff were more focused and more productive. In 1926, Ford Motor company became one of the first businesses in the world to adopt a five-day, 40 hour week. Today, it’s the norm. An article in the New York Times times by CEO James Fried reported that his were more productive, healthier and motivated by working four days a week. With less time to work, there was less time to waste. They were more focused and determined at getting the job done. At Dreamr, my staff have extra long lunches, attend local events and on a Wednesday, they have dedicated time to learn new skills. They even use it to brush up on old ones or

Dreamr in Manchester at Digital Skills Festival

Dreamr in Manchester visits Skills Fest Every year my team spends countless days and weeks preparing for the Digital Skills Festival Talent Day. Last year they created a huge box structure from cardboard boxes, stuck our faces to it and massive words; ‘Think Outside the Box”. It attracted lots of attention from visitors, students and other companies exhibiting. It was totally different from every other stand there and made us look pretty damn cool. We’re there again this year and I would encourage all students who are attending to come say hi to our new display, to know what it is you have to come see us. Dreamr Eventbrite link.  

Happy holidays: a message from Dreamr Head of Digital Mylo Kaye

  We all spend the holidays in a different way, some of us have the family around a dining room table with lots of food and drink, others spend it somewhere sunny, others, whether we like it or not spend it alone. However we like to spend our holidays, it’s always a great time to reflect. What did we do, what did we achieve? How can I do things better or differently this year? At Dreamr, we are always thinking forward, but to do that you have to look at what’s gone before. We’ve been able to expand our offering of services to more and more clients including offering more advanced website development using the Laravel framework, supporting our App Development team.

Dreamr Manchester Mylo Kaye. Mylo Kaye is the co-founder of Dreamr Manchester, a digital design & development agency. Mylo is a strategic thinker, designer & creative director with an eye for pixel perfection. In my role at Dreamr in Manchester, I’m focused on B2B Creative Direction, leading a team of 10 designers and developers. Successes included creating an internal corporate website for Equate in the Middle East that generated enormous buzz and that went on to win numerous design and development awards in 2014. Previous experience includes launching two digital magazines; Communicate & Transform. Recently I lead the design and development of the Bluewater website that launched in Las Vegas in April 2015. Colleagues know me as highly creative and honest who can always be trusted to come up with a new approach. But I know that the client’s business comes first, and I never try to impose my ideas on others. Instead, I spend a lot of time understanding the business and the audience before suggesting ideas. I can (and often do) work well alone, but I’m at my best collaborating with others. I’m currently looking for charity work and occasional consultations in design direction and branding.
