Creative Development

When it comes to branding, we focus on emerging-trends to ensure a long-term site design inline with your Brand Guidelines.

Branding

Each project includes a bespoke Visual Guideline, our way in digitising your Brand Guidelines.

During our Define stage, we will gather the necassary brand assets and develop them into your new website. Our process includes Think Tank sessions in which we decide on Art Direction taking into consideration your industry and emerging trends.

We use Google's file sharing services as a way of collaboration meaning we can link assets to 'live' folders and easily share with you and your team.

Fonts

Taking into consideration existing Brand Guidelines, there will be a keen focus on font pairings to ensure information is presented in an easily eligible manner.

Great typography can have a dramatic impression on the user and it's important that it has a true feeling of authority and full eligibility when read.

Imagery

A picture speaks a thousand words and we're believers in customer trust, this is why we advise all our clients to povide proffessional imagery in high resolution. In theme with the site, we can create bespoke filters to match your vibe.

When lack of imagery becomes an issue, we can provide guidance in sourcing the best stock whilst retaining brand value.

Animation/Interaction

The right choice of animation will strengthen the mood and identity of the brand whilst ensuring the site has a modern appeal, inline with the latest trends.

Interactive elements aides in customer journey, signalling the user where to click, scroll and progress. This practice is especially helpful for mobile sites, where screen space can be limited.

Colour

Whether we're working with an existing pallete or starting from scratch, we combine colour theory with business.

The colours we agree upon will create emotion and influence decision making. The pallete will form part of our Visual Guideline and through reptition of these colours, strenghten the brands awareness.

Copywriting

Clients are expected to provide finalised copy for the relevant sections of their site. We work with you to ensure the message we're putting across is in the correct manner and offer guidance on tonality and structure where necassary.

We also work with a talented team of freelance writers and can provide different avenues to project your voice to the masses.

Platform

Our custom built CMS allows for the easy upload of existing content. Adding new content is as easy as filling out a form. You can even write new content right on the page to see exactly how it will look once published.
