Celebrating 14 Years of Create

Create turns 14 today and just like any birthday, we're celebrating and reminiscing over the last 14 years. From when our first customer built their very own website to hosting those of thousands of businesses in recent years. It has been a journey that we're honoured to have been able to share with you.

Create Puts Makers In The Picture At BMMF

Create Booth at Brighton Mini Maker Faire

We had loads of fun at the incredible Brighton Mini Maker Faire on Saturday! We saw robots knitting, light writing, traffic cones with road rage, a DALEK and much more besides.

Not only does Create sponsor this annual celebration of ingenuity, innovation and invention but we also popped along with a little creation of our own that got hundreds of people online in an instant.

The automated Create Booth took snaps of makers, families, kids and various other curious Faire-goers and automatically uploaded the photographs to the Create Twitter feed with the hashtag #BMMF so that they could go online and retrieve their image later.


'Put Yourself In The Picture' With Create

'Put Yourself In The Picture' With Create At #BMMF2013

As well as rolling out awesome new features (more coming very soon!) to Create users, this week we've also been LOUDLY working on the exhibit we're taking along to Brighton Mini Maker Faire tomorrow.

This is the second year of our partnership with this amazing showcase of creativity, invention and ingenuity. Last year we cut our teeth demoing the Create platform to a wide range of people, but this year we've got something a bit special up our MASSIVE SLEEVES.

We've built a fun Photo Booth for folks at the Faire (Sept 7th, Brighton Dome & Corn Exchange) to get themselves snapped in! Take a look at the construction process in the pics below.

For the second year running Create is proud to sponsor Brighton Mini Maker Faire (Sept 7th/8th).

This annual showcase of incredibly innovative invention is a great way to spend a day on the coast.

Immerse yourself in a world of craft, creativity and fun and learn the practices behind the exhibits.

Held at Brighton Dome and the adjacent Corn Exchange, the Faire brings together engineers, inventors and craftpersons united in a common goal: to make you say 'WOW!', be that with a game of One-Dimensional Pong, a ride on a people-powered Scalextric track or even a humanoid robot that knits.
