We are proud to announce the launch of our new website for Lulu Lush , and we hope you like it as much as we do! 

Lulu Lush is a remodelled ice cream van dishing up cocktails everywhere from intimate parties to festival-scale events as well as offering a party planning service. The brief was simple; create a website that captures the essence of Lulu - a fun loving party girl with a 40's pin-up influence. It was important for us to maintain the strong brand-focused visuals throughout the website and ensure ease of use for visitors.

We are delighted with the website, and would love to hear your thoughts.

Building trust in your company is essential to creating a reputable, professional, profitable and ultimately successful business, both online and offline. Whichever sector your organisation belongs to, your premises, staff and environment should evoke reliability and confidence.  The same goes for your online presence. Use these 5 techniques to gain trust with your customers, increase conversion rates for your website and multiply referrals and drive brand awareness.  


1/ Well Known Badges and Logos

Viewers of your website will react positively to recognisable logos and emblems. For instance, if your site offers e-Commerce, badges; such as the McAfee SECURE, Paypal Verified, or the VeriSign logos; will reassure your prospective customer that your site is reliable and secure. On the other hand, if your business is more service based, show off award logos,  previous clients or collaborator/manufacturer emblems. These will make your business appear more renowned, established and trustworthy.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you need to start thinking about how your business will utilise this holiday in your digital marketing strategy (without just making everything heart-shaped).

There have already been some exceptional campaigns launched for 2017’s Valentine’s Day.  With these in mind, here are some quick and simple ways to make the most of the hype surrounding this day.


1/ Theme your landing pages

Even if you are short on time, a themed landing page dedicated to Valentine’s Day is really effective in grouping together your Valentine’s deals, products or events. Last minute gifts for Valentine’s Day are more common than any other holiday, so make sure your offers are still prominent right up-to (and during if you can) the day itself.

Make it obvious on your  website  homepage through the use of through banners, links and relevant images. Whether you are offering spa treatments, promoting meals at your restaurant or selling gifts, broadcast on your website as much as possible what you have to offer during the run up to this big day.


2/ Engage your customers using social media  

Everybody has stories about Valentine’s Day, so why not ask them to share and get some interaction building? People love to talk about themselves so get them talking through a dedicated hashtag. O2’s for example developed #O2tweetheart which worked fantastically well a couple of years back. Equally, not everybody wants to celebrate. More humorous hashtags such as #disasterdates, #worstgifts or #Vdayembarassments often get a much better response! Additionally, the responses you get are perfect for creating content for blogs or emailers.

We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new website for House of Flowers . As they are establishing themselves as a truly luxurious brand, we decided the logo needed to stand out and be recognisable whilst still adhering to the values of the company. With this in mind, we started by creating the logo and then built the rest of the brand around it. House of Flowers felt it was important for the logo to show the simplistic elegance of their collections, and we think the refined yet traditional 'H' does this perfectly. 

Once the brand was established, we started to design the website , which needed to manage regular subscriptions and additional orders quickly and efficiently as well as look visually appealing. The flowers in the collections are selected from the market the morning of delivery to ensure they stay fresh for as long as possible, so all deliveries must be handled manually. This means that the e-commerce section of the website had to be easy to use and allow the floral architects to focus on creating stunning collections without worrying about the technology behind the orders.

We are delighted to announce the launch of studioAV' s new website and hope you like it as much as we do. 

studioAV contacted us after seeing our work for one of their partners, MDfx . They were looking for a complete website redesign to ensure their online presence was as striking as their demonstration facilities. As a supplier of high-end hi-fi, home cinema, and smart home automation systems, the website needed to match the high quality of studioAV's products and services.

Due to the growth in mobile browsing, it's important that all websites are responsive and this site is no different. Working seamlessly across mobile, tablet and desktop, with additional navigation menus on tablet and desktop, this site offers a seamless user experience.

Last year we saw a shift in the design world as brands looked to connect more on a personal level with customers. Apps have become more conversational and even your online banking treats you like an old friend. There has been an emergence of ‘vintage’ design as many brands are providing a hand-crafted spin on their products and independent businesses are coming into fashion. There's also a higher interest for consumers in the sourcing of products which has influenced design and copywriting campaigns.

As a response, brands have become more transparent and even blunt in order to remain open with their clientele. Going into 2017, we will see quite a bit of this continuing but with new advancements in UX/UI design and adaptation to new mind-sets and technology.
