There’s more to interface design than just making clear, unconfusing layouts. Brand personality and emotion can be communicated through these touch points. We love to explore new ways for our clients to interact with their users.
Themes like exploration, suspense and surprise often appear in our work. Whether it’s for recreation or a tool – to design applications that engage, but also drive conversions – our philosophy is the same. Make it simple, make it fun, make it work!
Case Study – Virgin Radio International
Case Study – Bos
An online icon design platform that empowers users to design t-shirts, surf boards, skateboards, cans and bicycles.
Case Study – Markus Wormstorm
Experimental and atmospheric interfaces. A website for a sound engineer.
Local, legendary musician Markus Smit aka Markus Wormstorm approached us to develop an online, musical, interactive experience to showcase his work and identity. What ensued was a remarkable collaboration of creative minds exploring narrative, abstract, experiential concepts and one of the more unusual portfolio experiences you will have online. We were very conscious of making the experience light and fast and it was often an exercise in minimalism and implied complexity. It is a great example for us of how our work values users. Without interaction, the site is dead. It takes an adventurous mind and the slightest of curiosity to bring the site to life in a collaboration with whomever explores it.
Case Study – iFix
We love working with the super guys at Cow Africa and this is a great example of a simple idea that is fun and engaging for everyone who worked on it and everyone that interacted. That translates to a great user experience.
Case Study – Peter Gray
Sometimes the design needs to disappear and make room for the client’s product. A full brand development for an internationally acclaimed artist.
Peter Gray is a multi-award winning South African artist and a Donut Dad of whom we are very proud. He exhibits locally and internationally and is one of the most successful South African wildlife artists. We had the pleasure of putting together a website and social media campaign for him. Stop by and have a look at some of his work. It will be well worth your time.
Case Study – McDonald’s
Tablets with a custom app roam an event collecting t-shirt designs and managing orders wirelessly.
We were tasked to produce a t-shirt designer application for a McDonald’s activation. Essentially the app was quite simple – brand communicators with tablets helped users to design slogans on a t-shirt and select their sizes and t-shirt designs using the app. There was an onsite printer who was printing t-shirts with around a 30-minute turnaround time. A user would design a t-shirt, it would be printed and it could then be collected a short while later. We created the system for creating and tracking order numbers, as well as an app for the printer to have access to print ready designs to make their process more efficient.
