An artist’s impression

Last Saturday I spotted this story on the BBC website about a photo taken on New Year’s Eve in Manchester, which developed into an internet meme. 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…

Let’s make gardens fun!

Thu, 28 Aug 2014  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

In 2010 we designed and installed a minigolf course in a rear garden in North London. We look back on this project with fond memories of what we created, with highlights including a double green, a fiendish water hazard and – our favourite one of all – a Rube Goldberg-esque contraption where the ball travels in and out of the shed!

The UrbanCrazy World Of Miniature Golf

Mon, 16 Jun 2014  |  Richard Gottfried, contributor

Being on a mission to visit and play all of the Minigolf, Crazy Golf and Adventure Golf courses in the UK we’re always on the lookout for new places to play.

There are over 600 courses in the country, ranging from 9-hole to 54-hole complexes, with layouts indoors as well as outside. Some are of the seaside classic ‘Windmill’ type of course, others are newer all-singing, all-dancing adventure-themed golf courses with animatronic dinosaurs, jungles, volcanoes and plenty of water features. The UK also has a number of grass putting greens and skill-based Minigolf courses. Read more

Barnard Castle Minigolf

A Journey Through Teesdale

Mon, 01 Jul 2013  |  Jon Angel, UrbanCrazy

After 30 years’ service, the old minigolf course in Barnard Castle, County Durham was beginning to ‘show its age’ and so the local Town Council decided it was time to replace it. They set about finding a company that could design and build a suitable replacement and we are delighted to say that, following a vigorous procurement process, we at UrbanCrazy were awarded the contract.

Now, after a 16 week build program and a herculean effort from all involved, the course is open for business! Read more
