Portfolio

Key clients: 
Swiftpak, Access IS, Xavio Design, Happy Doors, Aquamarine

Swiftpak are wholesale packaging providers based in Berkshire, UK. Their website fell out of line with their brand values so they came to us looking for a website that not only served their existing customers, but promoted their values and services to attract new business. Never shying away from a challenge, we started to collaborate on a new strategy to create a digital experience that would set new standards in packaging

websites.

Creative Approach

After several workshops, research and brainstorming sessions, we started to get creative. Using our illustration and animation skills, an opening scene was designed to really make Swiftpak stand out from the crowd. The animation and value proposition makes it super clear to see what Swiftpak offer in just a couple of seconds of viewing time. 

Access IS specialise in image processing, RFID/NFC technology, barcode reading and specialist keyboards. You'll have definitely interacted with their products at some point if you travel. Bigger Picture was approached to take their digital efforts to the next level & create a digital experience that reflects their brand as a true industry leader.

When it comes to a website redesign, data is our friend. Analysing

their now old site made it clear that a total rethink was in order. A new sitemap and defined user journeys were put in place. Our discovery sessions uncovered website pain points, all of which could be easily taken care of using our CMS, Alfred. Once we really understood Access IS's brand, audience and objectives, we had all the ingredients to start getting creative.

Happy Kitchens Branding & Website

Happy Kitchens offer kitchen makeovers and bespoke bedroom furniture to make homes happy. When they came to us, their digital presence was well optimised for search engines but lacked engagement. It was clear to us from very early on, the Happy Kitchens personality and quality of work were not being reflected effectively. Driving traffic to a website is fantastic, but if people are not immediately engaged then all SEO efforts

are useless.

We spent a lot of time to really understand what makes Happy Kitchens different, empathised with their audience, analysed competition, and created a memorable brand and digital experience that not only attracts visits but builds trust too.

Hampshire Light Brand & Website

Hampshire Light combine the art & science of lighting to create multiple award winning interiors for homes throughout Hampshire. It made sense for them to collaborate with our very own Hampshire based award winning digital design agency to create something their brand & work deserved. We took the time to understand the Hampshire Light audience, the types of projects they work on, how the services on offer appeal to
different people, & how they speak to potential customers. After going through this learning phase, we put a strategy in place for the Hampshire Light brand to shine online.
Happy Doors offer provide to measure replacement kitchen doors. We collaborated to produce a bespoke e-commerce website making ordering replacement doors simple. Some top website features include a door configurator, easy checkout process and slick product refinement. As an online B2C brand, we knew mobile traffic would outweigh desktop. Every step of the user journey was carefully designed on mobile screens through to desktop.
The website design offers clear instruction, useful information and a no-fuss checkout process. Analysing every website in the sector we knew there was an opportunity to stand out with the best, most intuitive door configurator so we paid special attention to the experience in that area to redefine the industry standard.

Feedback summary: 

Analytics show considerable performance improvements over the previous site. Bigger Picture was honest and forthcoming, and they quickly offered solutions to any problems that arose.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for a wholesale packaging supplier for B2B business. I'm the marketing and sales manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bigger Picture?

Our digital resources were very weak, and our website wasn't up to scratch. We wanted a site that represented some of our new strategies, and we went to Bigger Picture for help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bigger Picture spent time to understand what we wanted to achieve. Based on their research of our business and what we stand for, they created the first design. We discussed that design, gave some feedback, and they iterated on our comments. They gave us ideas of ways we could work digitally. It was more of a partnership than a vendor/customer relationship.

They used a Laravel solution and built the whole site from scratch. The team designed the entire CMS system, including the front- and backends. They implemented a waste report and made sure load times were super-fast. 

What is the team composition?

I worked with their managing director, a digital strategist, a head of creative, and a digital designer.

How did you come to work with Bigger Picture?

I did a lot of research on different agencies in our region. I had a list of about 15 agencies, which I trimmed down to two potential vendors. Bigger Picture felt like the best fit.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project ran from January-September 2019, and they still support us.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We only recently completed the project, so SEO statistics will take a little time. Our previous analytics were very poor, and now Google Lighthouse scores us much higher. All our numbers are near 100%.

How did Bigger Picture perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management was good, and they kept me informed at all times. If things ever went wrong, they were very honest and worked quickly to find solutions. The communication was very good, and they were upfront about everything.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I'm really happy with the outcomes, and I don't think we could have chosen a better agency. We continue to work with them on a retainer, and they will help us with other campaigns in the future, including monthly promotions, creative designs, and SEO.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing springs to mind. They were always transparent, and we could call them at any time to find a solution. They really listened to us, and were very helpful throughout the process.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Hire them. I have no doubt that they will do a great job on any project.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a marketing manager at an electronic systems manufacturer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bigger Picture?

We had an outdated website, which was hard to manage and navigate. We were looking for a vendor to develop a new website for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

One of the problems with our old website was that there were no cross links between the searches applied to different markets, so it filtered products depending on the market you were in. The backend also contained a lot of data that was hard to manage. Bigger Picture developed a new website from scratch. They really took it to the next level and created an experience that presented our brand as an industry leader. We have a specific product that fits into many different markets and Bigger Picture was able to illustrate that breadth by the animations on the home page. They used Alfred, which is a frontend and an open-source backend application.

What is the team composition?

I worked with an engineer and a designer.

How did you come to work with Bigger Picture?

We got quotes from three or four different companies and Bigger Picture offered us the rates that were right in the middle. We met with them and we were able to establish a good connection immediately. They understood exactly what we needed, so we decided they'd be a good fit.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about £20,000 (approximately $25,700).

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them between July–November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We saw an increase in traffic and the feedback from our customers has been very positive. Bigger Picture understood exactly how our products work and how they fit into the market, which helped them meet all of our needs.

How did Bigger Picture perform from a project management standpoint?

They managed the workflow effectively and met all the deadlines. It was a bit of a slow start because we needed to collect all the images of the top, front, and back side of the products from manufacturers. Bigger Picture was easy to work with and let us know when they needed anything from us. We mostly used email and conference calls to stay in touch.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They were willing to provide feedback and make recommendations to ensure the project was a success. It's very easy for a vendor to listen to the client and just do what the client tells them, but Bigger Picture would always let us know if we were heading in the wrong direction.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. Everything was fantastic.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go into the relationship with an open mind. If you have a predetermined image of what your website will look like, that will take away the creativity.

Bigger Picture demonstrated expertise from the get-go. They offered valuable insights into digital marketing and planned the project seamlessly from beginning to end. I plan to use them for all of my web development projects from now on. I don’t need to go anywhere else.
