As it has been a very, very long time since the site was updated; the site has now had a major overhaul. The redesign reflects not only the need to bring the site more up to date, but the change in direction of some aspects of the site content, with a focus on retro games development and development for the commodore c64.
The new pixellated design reflects this using a colour scheme taken directly from the c64 and with a combination of c64 style high-res and multi-colour graphics. Hope y'all like it folks.
Site updates include more game related audio and graphics files, new games related content and links to social media sites where additional content and information can be found. I hope to make further updates in the near future with new releases, new links and updates on games development projects.
The site was designed to give access to a range of graphics audio and multimedia projects, both completed and under development. The majority of simple-media output is freely available and will continue to be. This is not a commercial site, however in order to fund continued development some items are available at a small cost (via Share-it / Digital River / MyCommerce).
This site; simple-media.co.uk is a one man outfit but collaborative work is possible and anybody interested in using my services or engaging in collaborative work can contact me via the contacts link found in the navigational panel on each page. Services available include graphic design for games, web sites and GUIs, musical composition and production and the development of some multi-media projects within the scope of my abilities.
My name is Saul Cross. I am a lecturer in Further and Higher Education currently working at Hull College in the United Kingdom; teaching a range of subjects related to ICT, computing and computer sciences.
Before becoming a lecturer I worked as a multimedia designer, developer and project manager and also have some experience of working within the computer games industry in the heyday of 8-bit and 16-bit gaming. My key interests include music composition and production, graphic design, 3D graphics (lighting, rendering and materials development) and retro styled games design and development.
