Happy Birthday UrbanCrazy – Sweet 16!

Sat, 24 Nov 2018  |  James Palmer, UrbanCrazy

This time 16 years ago, UrbanCrazy was registered as a new company, bringing what was then a predominantly seaside activity crazy golf to parties, offices and events nationwide. Loved by children, adults, skilled golfers and fun-seekers alike, miniature golf has great appeal to all.  And UrbanCrazy has been at the forefront of bringing this to the masses ever since.

We have been thrilled to build, hire and sell portable courses to hundreds of events, people and companies from the UK to New Zealand and from Qatar to India, which just goes to show the universal appeal of all things minigolf!

As you scroll down the article you will notice a tweet from @mjlovatt_LFC in which he used the specialist app, SuperPhoto, to recreate the image with a paint effect.

So I decided to use the same app and another that I recently discovered – RollWorld – to reimagine some of our own favourite photos that we’ve taken over the past few years. Here are the hypnotic results…
