Birds of Poole Harbour

Digital fundraising with immersive animation for bird conservation and education


Improving systems with innovative software design

Celebrating the picturesque location and variety of it’s bird life, this animal welfare charity wanted to use interactive technology to enhance it’s contactless giving approach.

Encouraging donations through interactive design

Working with our designers, we created an animation using the bird species found in the area as inspiration, to mimic their flight and interaction with an additional screen and micro-PC with motion sensor linked to an existing Payter payment device, prompting passing visitors interact and donate.

A charity completely dedicated to educating people on the stunning variety of bird life in one of the country’s most picturesque locations
