Signly was conceived and developed by Mark Applin, founder of Intermedia, and Deafax, a charity committed to transforming the lives of d/Deaf people through technology. Until now, using augmented reality seemed a little contrived. Applying the technology to create signed content for the d/Deaf and hard of hearing seemed obvious yet no one had done it. As a long-time supporter of the charity, Intermedia shared the idea and IP with Deafax to help deliver the project. Website.


Deafax is a charity which has been working for 30 years to empower d/Deaf people to lead more fulfilling lives. To do this, d/Deaf people need equal access to information, advice and services and Signly will play a significant role in extending this equality of access. Website.

Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

The Museum, aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, features three interactive galleries. Boy gallery looks at Roald Dahl's school days while Solo gallery houses his original Writing Hut. The Story Centre puts your imagination centre-stage with fantabulous activities to inspire the writer in you. RDMSC were the first organisation to support us and remain close friends of Signly.

Lloyds Banking Group

Lloyds have been passionate advocates using their scale, resources and skills to validate the proposition. We're indebted to them. Website.

Network Rail

Our client immediately saw the potential to reach out to an at-risk group who would benefit from access to information about level crossing safety. Their campaign spanned posters and leaflets with digital signage at key stations. The collateral shows Signly at its best. Website.
