I heard that creative recruitment agency, Type, were interested in replacing their existing website with a new modern, responsive and creative design. This got me thinking that it didn’t have to adhere to conventions of other recruitment websites.
So I designed and pitched a new concept that would set them apart from other recruiters and even some design agencies. I used an unusual, fullscreen modular layout to portray them in a new light. The result is striking and forward thinking, even it wasn’t chosen.
By focusing on technology, online only banks are able to give customers better interest rates and cater more towards their fast paced way of life. But some are very limited in what they are able to offer.
So I decided it would be fun to have a go at designing my own. I came up with the name Wise, along with some key features that would provide customers with a well rounded, hassle free experience. My goal here was to eradicate the need to use a high street bank all together.
I designed the brand and landing page to be fresh and youthful contrast to high street banks, through the use of bold colours, subtle icons and product imagery. With easy access to key information, reviews, endorsements and support, the landing page encourages users to download the app and set up a free account.
I was asked to produce a brand, website and welcome email without any directional input from the client. The goal was data collection, so the focus was to subtly push users into signing up to receive special deals specifically for lads.
I made the decision to go for a trendy, modern website, that used unique brand elements to guide the user down the page, to the sign up form. The resulting brand and website have an almost luxurious feel, whilst remaining youthful and male orientated.
Study Safe came to me as a start up wanting to create a solid brand for attracting students and young professionals. By working together with the client, a parent brand was developed that has the potential to market their services individually via dedicated sub-brands.
The result is a modern, fresh take on health insurance. It emphasises simplicity via clear and concise messages, as well as an easy to use sign up process. Website users are given key information in short bursts that allow for easy digestion.
With a clear set of customer profiles, a marketing strategy and brand tailored to reaching uni students, the client now has a clear direction in which to take the brand and how to use it.
As part of updating the website with their new brand, I created a new website structure and information architecture, that was designed to give customers a better experience and improved levels of service information.
Individual service and tariff pages were designed that allowed customers to check service availability, cost and usage allowances, before signing up.
A new ‘Quick Quote’ feature was also introduced to the sign up process, allowing for quicker data capture and giving customers an easier and faster online experience.
“Evolution, No Revolution” that was the goal when refining and repositioning the Split The Bills brand to better communicate to their target audience.
Logo changes were minimal, made only to reflect the company’s culture and values. The typeface was changed to one that is visually softer, modern and approachable.
This is complimented by the introduction of a new illustration style. The bespoke work of Raven Cruz adds a real sense of individuality and character that has become vital to the brand’s success.
