BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We're a leading classic car publication with over 2.5 million users. We produce high-quality video content and authentic editorial storytelling. I'm the director of digital product development, digital marketing, and social media.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Wolf&Whale?

We hired them to for a rebrand and UX/UI overhaul of our website.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to revamp our layout to increase sharing and engagement, reduce our bounce rate, improve loading times, and deliver a good e-commerce experience. Since our audience expects high-quality content, and younger users are rapidly moving to mobile devices, responsive design was also a key part of the project.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected them through an RFP. 

Describe the project in detail.

They completely overhauled our website and updated our brand. We explored several designs that kept our unique brand and values in mind. Our editorial regularly contains more than 25 photos per article, so the layout needed to deliver a smooth experience while emphasizing our renowned storytelling. They consulted on brand direction, completed all our design assets, and handled web development and content migration. 

What was the team composition?

Their team had a design director, UX designer, art director, and three web developers. They added more team members as the project scaled up. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have increased our overall web and mobile traffic, time on site, and number of newsletter subscribers, while reducing our bounce and exit rates. We also created a foundation for e-commerce revenue. We're still revered as one of the most effectively designed and differentiated automotive publications.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their communication was so strong that they felt like part of our team. We used Slack, JIRA, and InVision.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their founder, who is a business-minded designer, thoroughly understood our challenges. That's difficult to find. Their forward-thinking design gave us a huge leap forward.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we were satisfied with their deliverables.
