Vector Vine - Store all your branding assets in one place Image

Vector Vine - Store all your branding assets in one place

 

KEY DRIVER - THE ORIGINS OF VECTOR VINE PLATFORM

Each logo is a unique combination of font, colors, and shapes. To simplify the process of sharing brand logos and guidelines, the client contacted us with an idea to create a platform where companies/designers could upload and share logo collections.

Vector Vine securely stores the

brand's vector files, having in mind, the company's logo is its brand’s visual representation to the world and it has to be highly protected.

Vector Vine platform is protecting the integrity of branding assets and ensuring they’re accessible and ready-to-use for designers, vendors, media, and partners.

THE CHALLENGE

·        • Improper storage of vector files
•  Communication between the Client and the Designer
• Ensuring logos are always presented in their original form
• Securely place all branding assets in one place
• Sharing and storing brand files
• User-friendly design

SHARING CONTENT

One of the biggest challenges for Lloyds Design was to come up with a solution for the secure sharing of branding assets. The solution we came up with was a One-click sharing toggle switch that allows the branding asset owner to easily manage the sharing of the branding assets. One of the main themes that jump out of this platform is the sharing feature - simply toggle the switch to enable or disable the share feature.

The frontend website had to appear very straightforward and simple to use, but the backend needed to handle a series of complicated functions, integrating directly with a membership database. Another challenge was setting out accessibility to different collections and different logos under the same collection. We incorporated one-click toggle sharing as a unique feature that gives the power to decide which collection and which logos inside each collection will be shareable.

RESULT

Vector Vine design is simple and intuitive; the landing page demonstrates what the platform is all about and how it can make your job easier. The homepage has a short copy explaining the platform and the option to get more in-depth info while each element on the website is carefully designed and placed to enhance the UX, showcase the product, and promote the benefits of using it.

    Feedback summary: 

    Although it's too early to speak to numeric impacts, stakeholders responded well to the site's new design. Lloyds Design faced some timing challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis, and communication could have been more punctual. Regardless, the project lead did well to mitigate delays.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    We facilitate healthcare services between international clients and Croatian healthcare providers. The company was established in 2014 in Croatia and in 2015 in Sweden. There are three managers in charge, one in Sweden and two in Croatia. I am the Chairperson of the Swedish company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Lloyds Design?

    We decided that a new/modern website with interactive options and web shop would attract more customers. Therefore, modernization of the website, easy navigation and clear messages sent from us to the clients were the task we entrusted to Lloyds Design.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We wanted to increase the conversion rate from the website visits as well as to enable faster and more simple access to the services we offer. We wanted that the packages we decided to offer online can easily be adjusted for promotion and online sale.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    Lloyds design was recommended to us by one reputable agency. Further on they recently completed the project for one of our medical providers (hospital) and their references were both favorable for LLoyds Design.

    We selected them among four different options. They were presented to us in the meetings as a good team of young, creative and eager to deliver persons.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    After the initial and kick off team meeting the work started towards the end of January 2020. We delivered the agreed information (website content and visuals) in order for LLoyds design prepared web design - UI / UX (user interface / user experience), to create design prototypes / wireframes.

    Front end development (Vue.js + HTML5 + CSS3) resulted in responsive pages for all devices - including tablets, smart phones, desktop computers. Back end development - WordPress CMS established a background functions and prepared the platform for the shopping chart implementation.

    We didn't complete this function due to change in our objectives but we expect to implement in the course of the year.

    After 3-4 months of work we received the project which was tested before we finally launch the website in June. We must state that the COVID-19 crisis affected the project in sense that it took longer than planned to complete.

    What was the team composition?

    The project team consisted of 5-6 people with the project leader that was established from the start and was a valuable stable point all the way through the challenging months (meaning - corona health crisis and working from home under pressure and in stressful conditions).

    The team coordination with us worked well and we had several calls and teams meetings online where key issues were discussed and clarified.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

    It is very early to say how strong the impact of the redesign and modernization was. It has been less than few weeks from the launch and release. We have started with the online marketing and campaign, expecting some results in the coming months.

    We talked to our consultants and persons experienced in design and we received only positive comments. There were some constructive critics and we intent to discuss them with Lloyds Design in the near future.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Project management was somehow distracted by the sudden COVID-19 crisis, as said earlier. Still, the project leader did all he could to enable the progress of the project. They were delays in delivery of some parts of the project (wireframe, for example). We communicated through emails mainly, phone calls, Skype and Google meet.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    The project leader was easy to access and his response time was always good. The whole team worked with enthusiasm and were flexible accepting our changes and different ideas.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    My suggestion to the team leader was that any, very short communication is better rather than responding later, after all information are prepared. It is good that your client knows you are thinking of him although not able to answer immediately.

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    We are the official Tourist Board office in the city of Zadar in Croatia.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Lloyds Design?

    We hired Lloyds Design for the developing of our new web page, as well as for re-design our mobile apps Zadar Travel and Secret Zadar.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Complete refurbishing of our existing web page and mobile applications in accordance to the newest web technologies and content / design guidlnes.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    They were recommended by other companies in the industry and were chosen to do the project among three other vendors. The selection involved a primary offer and a peach / presentation in our office along with other couple of companies, that we originally contacted.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    They designed, developed, configured and launched a new web site. Once we approved the workflows and wireframes, the production itself lasted for three months. The functional versions were ready for user testing every two weeks.

    What was the team composition?

    The project involved several team members from their side, but always with single project manager that concluded communication with our side regarding the technical issues, that can easily get misunderstood in translation.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

    After several years of unsatisfactory solution, this new online system now profoundly helped to maintain our visibility and presence in the ever-competing tourism market online.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Project manager was very forthcoming and receptive and the whole team from their side followed and correctly formulated our inquiries and ideas.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Excellent communication and fast resolving of any prolems we ancountered along the way.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Feedback summary: 

    Though just recently launched, the site is visually appealing and inspires confidence in internal stakeholders. Lloyds design provided innovative solutions, and while they could benefit from improving their communication skills, the engagement has been successful overall.

    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 the market and sales manager EMEA for Calucem GmbH. We produce specialty cement worldwide.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Lloyds Design?

    Our old website was static, not optimized, had a complicated structure, and had outdated content. We wanted to hire a team to build a digital marketing concept and strategy for us.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    When LLoyds Design came on board, they helped our team redevelop and redesign our website, bringing it up to date. The team also optimized it for mobile access.

    They continue to maintain the website for us.

    What is the team composition?

    There were about four of five people engaged in the project in total. We had a  project manager, who was our direct point of contact. 

    How did you come to work with Lloyds Design?

    We looked around to find a team to help us with the website transformation. Lloyds’ offer had the complete package; price, information and timeline provided, good references, and an impressive portfolio. They were also flexible in negotiations in terms of easy addition or removal of services as needed.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We’ve spent between €20,000–€25,000 (approximately $22,000–$28,000 USD).

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We began the project in October 2019. While the site rebuild wrapped up in April 2020, the engagement is ongoing as Lloyds continues to provide us with web maintenance services.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Our website went live two weeks ago, and we’re currently in the fine-tuning stage. Visually, everything looks fantastic and we’ve received very positive feedback so far. Throughout the build, Llyod’s team worked smoothly with our own. 

    How did Lloyds Design perform from a project management standpoint?

    Their project management style was good. Communication could be complicated at times, especially regarding tracking or making changes. We had weekly calls with their team to go through what was being worked on and what needed attention, as well as the timeline projections. We also communicated via email.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Lloyds offered great ideas and presented solutions we hadn’t considered. The team is hands-on, and they’re experts in their field—they really know what they’re talking about. They’re a fresh, young, good-spirited team that wants to move forward. Their skill sets are impressive. 

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    They could benefit from improving their project management, specifically regarding communication.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Communicate often and have frequent alignment calls for a smoother process.

    Feedback summary: 

    Still in the early days, the working app has received positive feedback from key stakeholders. Lloyds Design ’s expert team inspired confidence throughout the project by communicating clearly from the start. They also offered useful tactical advice that was subsequently implemented.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the managing director for RealCom Broadcast Ltd. We provide resources to the satellite broadcast industry. We’re currently developing broadcast opportunities in alternate markets using mobile apps.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Lloyds Design?

    I needed to hire an external resource to develop an app to promote local businesses, events, and promotions.

    What were your goals for this project?

    I wanted to create an app for multiple clients and users. It should have claim/validate and purchasing functionality, along with location-relevant information.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I selected Lloyds Design after researching several vendors. I started the project with a freelance team, but they weren’t focused enough on the creative process. We had an initial introduction on Skype, and then I traveled to Croatia to meet the team. I was impressed by their hunger to develop their business in the industry.

    Describe the project in detail.

    I started by giving them the basic specifications and Visio workflows. We discussed the guidelines and functionality required of the app. They established a cloud documentation tool so that any work on project synopsis documents could be edited and commented by all parties. Both teams discussed and commented on design, screens, and color schemes via cloud collaboration. Lloyds Design used Laravel PHP framework, MySQL database, and hosted on AWS using S3, EC2, and RDS products from the AWS suite in their development of the app. 

    What was the team composition?

    I worked with a designer, a backend developer, a UI/UX developer, and several other members of their team.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    The finished product fulfilled all my expectations and specifications. Deployment has started but is very much in its infancy in terms of the number of downloads. Lloyds Design’s expertise was essential in overcoming any problems or challenges. They were also able to provide useful advice on efficiencies in design, workflow, and the user & client experience. 

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    The whole project flowed seamlessly. I had set expectations on regular communication throughout the project, which was a critical factor in the success of this project from conception to delivery. We had weekly communication, as well as when required and occasionally outside of business hours. I always had the information I required from the members of the team who were working on each phase of the project.

    Lloyds Design was positive in every meeting, helpful in offering new ideas, and receptive to changes. Any issues were quickly addressed. They’re honest and candid with respect to what could realistically be achieved. Their commitment to a "we will make this happen" approach helped develop trust in their capabilities and deliverables. 

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their openness and honesty were so impressive. Lloyds Design had the drive to achieve the best possible outcome of the project. They desired to build something, not only that I would be proud to own, but they would be pleased to create.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    No. If anything, I’d like to see more of this company in the UK.
