September has been pretty busy here in CookiesHQ. New Cookies joined us, we’ve launched a brand new marketplace, recorded podcasts and did some exciting new work for existing clients.
Let’s take a look at what’s been happening…

Yuup is live - A uniquely Bristolian experience marketplace
We’ve said it before – what we love most about Bristol is the community spirit. So, we leapt at the chance to help the Yuup team bring their vision for a community-centric experiences marketplace to life.
We’ve had our heads down all summer building this amazing new marketplace. From sausage-making to silverwork and pottery to paddleboarding, you’ll find one-of-a-kind offerings from independent, local hosts. Perfect if you’re looking for something lovely to do during these difficult times. Of course, all experiences adhere to the current Covid-19 guidelines.
Yuup opened to hosts over the summer and got great feedback right from the start:
“Clean quick and intuitive. Streets ahead of some of the other players in the market, in my experience. Excellent!”
The site then launched to the public in the first week of September – an achievement we’re particularly proud of as this launch date was agreed back in 2019. Our team has worked extra hard around the Covid disruptions to deliver the project on time.

New interactive video options for the Stornaway platform
We’ve helped the Stornaway team take their platform to a new level by adding new options in their interactive video making platform, accompanied by some refactoring and performance improvement on the seamless video transitioning, making the platform more immersive.
The Stornaway platform is so incredible because it opens up the world of non-linear film to anyone. Newly released comedy short A Little Hangover, written and directed by Tyrell Williams, is one of the first independent films produced on the platform. This level of interactivity would have been impossible in a pre-Stornaway world without a much bigger budget and team. We can’t wait to see what people create with it!
