Branded Entertainment Network (BEN) website redesign

GreenLight website

ARTE.TV - Support to different web platforms

Marzee Labs is currently working on the Page Articles Project (PAPA) using Drupal 8 and ReactJS (under implementation) and on the maintenance of legacy Drupal 7 systems and the development of the modern headless Drupal and ReactJS stack (under implementation).

Most recently we have been collaborating on the Presse and Corporate pages using WordPress.

Center for Studies and Opinion Surveys (CESOP)

Marzee Labs developed a platform to manage their data and give the ability to administer its consultation through two types of environments, one public and another private. We are currently responsible for the maintenance of this platform. 

digitalnomads.pt

digitalnomads.pt was transformed into a centralised repository of information both on why Digital Nomads should come to Portugal, and on more practical and straightforward recommendations.

It was up to Marzee Labs to develop from scratch the new website and deliver the new brand identity together with our partner, Porto i/o.

Branded Entertainment Network (BEN)

Most of the work done by Marzee Labs focus on developing markup and SCSS for react components but also includes work on UI and design mockups. 

Our work has been seen and approved by Bill Gates himself.

UHub

In partnership with Pictonio, Marzee Labs migrated the HTML and CSS to our in-house static site generator stack (Besugo), made some design adjustments, and connected it with the backend Pictonio developed in parallel.

Additionally, Marzee Labs has also delivered a date picker react component for the reservations form in the website.

Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST)

Marzee Labs work to build a Pattern Lab library involved web design, the creation of a design language to work with interchangeable and complementary components and also the HTML/CSS architecture that is agnostic of the underlying technology that will implement the components.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Porto i/o is the leading coworking space in Porto, Portugal, since 2014. I am the founder and currently the project lead.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Marzee Labs?

Marzee Labs provided us with a new platform to power our sites (the main one and spin-off projects). Part of Marzee Labs team is also using one of our coworking spaces, and they continuously provide ad-hoc consulting on technical topics.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals were to migrate all our websites, refreshing their look and feel, as well as making them mobile-friendly.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were very much impressed by Besugo, Marzee Lab's state-of-the-art piece of technology that uses a static site generator approach for institutional sites. It suited our needs, budget and vision for what we want to achieve. Moreover, they are part of the open-source community and it matches our values.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

In a nutshell, here are the phases of the project:

  1. Current site analysis and re-structure proposal.
  2. Product revamp and evolution.
  3. Design (low and hi-fi mockups) including style tiles.
  4. Study and iteration on mobile-first approach.
  5. Implementation and content migration.
  6. Project management, tests, documentation and training.

What was the team composition?

Marzee Labs team was composed by:

  • 1 PM
  • 1 Product specialist
  • 1 Lead developer
  • 1 Designer
RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The thin tech layer and simplified editorial platform that powers our websites were a drastic improvement so any one of our team can now contribute to our several websites. Right now we are finishing the content production and the release is going to be a massive step forward for our business since we'll be able to communicate well and beautifully our values and what we have to offer.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project was divided by sprints and several demos were being done as the project went forward. The communication was really clear and transparent. What we enjoyed the most was probably the fact that we always felt secure and in control of what was happening from a timeframe and budget perspective.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their culture. Not only their structure is flat, but it is clear that everyone in the team (and even in the project) feels equally important. There was never any typical "us against them" situation, and we could feel like we were part of their team, even though we were the client.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Since Marzee Labs is small at the core, and their work in a very non-traditional way, they have challenges with resources stacking. Again - they were very transparent about this at the beginning and we clearly knew that there will be some parts of the project where their team will be less available, as they would be in a more critical phase of another project. This, for us, was never an issue, because our critical phases of the projects were always well treated.
