The Institute - website launched

The Institute have launched a new website working with Submarine. The deployment includes a 360 walk-through virtual tour to highlight the team's location at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, Guernsey. 

The Institute provide training and education for Guernsey's health and social care professionals. The website is the first stage in a planned digital transition development which will see the core course information expand to include online registration and payment in future alongside current support services such as the Institute Library.




To boost the website launch, Submarine created several 360 VR photographic walk-throughs for recognition and to highlight the teams location within the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, Guernsey.  These were created with an array of GoPro cameras and deployed via Google Maps in order to take advantage of the widely circulated channel - they received over 1,200 views in the first weekend... lateral thinking combined with digital technology, serving a real purpose whilst bringing attention to this new deployment.




Submarine can deploy 360 photography independently of Google StreetView and within your own website. This has the advantage of a more streamlined interface for walk throughs without Google's wider menus and links. You can compare the StreetView application (above) with the bespoke version from Submarine below.


The website was designed and built by Submarine for deployment on the States of Guernsey ICM content management platform and hosting in order to minimise costs. Submarine are a preferred supplier for States of Guernsey.

About the author

Paul Brown

Paul is a creative professional who gained his BA Hons degree in graphic design & multi-media at Bradford University in England after studying fine art under Hockney alumni, Grant Devine. An early career in television and an interest in technology led him to combine graphic design with digital media including video and animation which he applied to touch-screen kiosk applications for Zanussi and Polygram in the 1990's. This led to work with interactive CD and DVD, including a ground breaking international product in 1997, The Great Highland Bagpipes working with Scottish Heritage and the Glasgow Piping Centre.

In 1998, he developed the North of England's first desktop digital video edit suite working directly with Apple (hardware/OS) and AVID (edit software). In 2000, his web based application for social housing (which utilised kiosks for outreach communities) won 5 national technical awards including 'Best Use of Technology'. Between 1999 and 2010 he developed the successful Northern creative agency Bluemoon providing solutions for a wide range of national and international clients including Tesco, M&S, Puma, Foxes Biscuits, Sulzer and Hesco Bastion. 

In addition to his work as a professional designer, Paul has led brand, marketing and communication teams including 5 years in off shore HNW finance managing 9 offices across Europe and an appointment as Global Brand & Marketing Director for Insight Vacations where he directed the launch of Luxury Gold as a stand alone premium 5 star brand. Paul worked closely with the Canada based digital team and senior executive of parent company The Travel Corporation which includes Red Carnation Hotels (on Guernsey) and Contiki, a mobile centric brand targeting the under 30's and particularly the forthcoming Generation Z.
