Try the Demo

 We build apps for

health campaigns, human resources, lifestyle, financial & pensions, science & research

We make innovative ageing software allowing people to visualise themselves in the future and showing effects of lifestyle such as drinking, smoking, tanning, diet, stress and pollution. We make software for education, science, health, pensions and HR. Our apps have been no.1 in 16 countries, achieving over 1 million downloads and reaching out to a global audience.

We are proud to have created ageing and lifestyle software for award winning health campaigns, science centres, education, pensions and financial sector as well as human resources. Whether seeing oneself with the effects of different lifestyles, such as smoking, drinking or tanning or merely glimpsing years into the future can really convey a powerful visual message. Our ageing software has helped to drastically increase numbers of visitors to health websites and campaigns therefore communicating ideas across in an interactive and fun way. All of our ageing software and apps are based on the effects of lifestyle that happen on real people's faces backed up by years of forensic & medical art research and training. Our software tends to hit the headlines and we have been featured on NBC News, CNN, BBC, ITV, Daily Mail, The Sun and the Telegraph to name a few.

About ageing: everyone ages individually and much of the ageing process is down to genes and lifestyle so although we cannot predict exactly what someone will look like as they get older, we can determine that everyone's face succumbs to gravity and wrinkles as a result of repeated facial expressions and we can illustrate what we know to happen to the skin as a result of various lifestyles on people's faces. Sunshine, alcohol, smoking and a poor diet can all accelerate the ageing process, making us look older than our years

We offer licenses for off the shelf software e.g logos can be added to our existing software to completely bespoke solutions.

Client: Scottish Government

Working in collaboration with Stripe Communications - DTM app was available for free downloads in the Drop a Drink Size Campaign - February 2012

Total 20,000 downloads for 1 month campaign

Morna McLelland, Stripe Communications : "The DTM app and CGI images we used across all media were key tactics in reinvigorating the campaign - then in its third year. We were able to work closely with the CMF team, Auriole in particular, across some tight deadlines to create end products that were specific to our campaign, and that delivered real cut though."

Jill Walker, Team Leader Health Marketing, Scottish Government: "The creation of the alcohol app enabled audiences to see what the impact of drinking too much might be which was a strong tactic appealing to the target audience and media alike. As a key part of our PR activity, it helped deliver a strong and engaging campaign with maximum effect."

Case Study: Drinking Mirror

Client: Scottish Government

The Drinking Mirror app was launched 7th January 2013 and has amassed more than 500,000 downloads in the Scottish Government 'Drop a Glass Size' campaign.

{App Store}
DTM reached no. 1 in the Food and Drink section of the app store in July 2012. Drinking Mirror reached no 15 overall in the app store and no.1 in Lifestyle. "We needed to find a creative way to communicate the harmful effects of regularly consuming too much alcohol, and Auriole and the team at Change My Face turned out to be a fantastic partner.  They were able to bring our campaign ideas to life, and create a simple, yet highly effective app that was downloaded over 480,000 times. We worked with the team to tailor and brand the app to our specification, and they worked to extremely tight deadlines but delivered on time. The resulting app has helped us deliver the most successful Scottish Government Alcohol PR campaign to date that has been recognised by the CIPR and awarded Best Healthcare Campaign. The campaign also won Gold at the PRCA DARE Awards in Scotland (for Research & Results) and a silver at the recent Marketing Society Scotland Star Awards in the PR category."

Case Study: Drinking Time Machine with School Children

Client: All Saints Academy - evaluation with school children using Drinking Time Machine featured on BBC Radio Glos

Nikki Ball, Teacher in health and social care and Faye Hatcher (BBC Radio)

Student's comments: It was awful... I looked rough and horrible, I didn't want to look at it, I put on weight and had flushed cheeks...

Nikki Ball: Normally it's something we tackle (drugs and alcohol) and we show pictures of the effects of liver and internal organs, but showing them a picture (of how they may look) is quite hard hitting, working with teenagers - vanity is a huge thing, I think it's really good because it's about them... and using technology like this is more beneficial... I was very surprised at the reaction to their pictures, it was a great buzz in the classroom. We have a responsibility and we need to tackle the issue, along with the NHS and parents - this has absolutely hit home today. (BBC Radio Glos)

68% of boys and girls at All Saints' Academy Comprehensive said DTM would make them think twice about binge drinking in the future.
