TutorMe is a remote tutoring application. Students book classes from an online portal, and tutors are assigned to take the class. At the appointed time, students and tutors start the virtual classroom application for the class. TutorMe had a first version of their app and website, but it was very much a prototype.
We redesigned everything from scratch right through from the website telling new visitors what the service does, the management portal and the virtual classroom application.
Oxbridge Editing provides academic editing services – preparing manuscripts for publication and the like. They wanted a website that reflected the Oxbridge brand: classic, quite conservative and high quality. But they also wanted their site to feel friendly and accessible.
We used very traditional typography and Oxbridge hues to give the brand connotations they wanted, and then added some characterful hand-drawn artwork to loosen the formality and generally make things brighter and friendlier.
We worked with Panasonic in 2015 on designing and developing a top secret project which is unlike anything we've previously done. Public launch is still several years away, and the project is under a non-disclosure agreement.
Pemberstone owns a large portfolio of residential and business property, and also have holdings in a number of other businesses which they help to fund and grow. They are very cautious and conservative, and believe in 'classical' good business practices, but they are also forward-looking and innovative. We designed an identity which evoked these values in its typography and visual language.
The BBC Academy provides training materials for students and professionals in the fields of TV, Radio, Journalism and IT, as well as running the BBC's own internal training courses. As always with the BBC there was a huge amount of material that the existing user interfaces weren't surfacing very well. We created these concepts to demonstrate how a training and educational portal could make more of the material they have, and also support personalised learning.
The BBC has a problem with their careers offering: most people have only the vaguest idea of what the corporation does, what kinds of jobs and careers are available, and where they are based. We put together this app concept to enable people to explore the career paths available, as well as search for current job vacancies and apprenticeships.
Volo, previously known as eSellerPro, is a platform for sellers manage their online sales channels such as eBay and Amazon. Previously a cumbersome Java application, we re-designed it as an web application.
HomeSwapper was an ugly duckling of a web application. We rebranded it and gave it a more modern look and feel. And crucially, we made it much, much easier to use. We did the design for the web app, and its sister mobile app.
Manything is an app that turns your old iPhone or iPod into a security camera. Then their web-application lets you watch the live stream, create and share clips, and view sound and motion analysis of the stream. We designed and built their website, and the Manything Pro application.
Bugfinders provides companies with crowd-sourced testing for their websites. They wanted an application that their customers could use to view the status of their testing projects – how many hours of testing had been done, the test coverage by device and geographic region, right down to the bugs that had been reported. We designed and built this angular application to hook into their test data.
CareerRadar is a not-for-profit business on a mission to shake up careers advice for young people. We created their brand, and designed and built their application (Angular - web, iOS, Android).
When using the applicaion, users start by answering some very short surveys to create a profile.
An advanced matching algorithm then matches them against the hundreds of careers in the database. Users can explore the careers, reading all about what the job entails, how much they might earn etc.
The application is designed for use in organisations (youth organisations, schools, colleges) where adults work with young people to help them make careers choices. So being able to view other user's profiles and their career suggestions was central to the concept. The same functionality also allows users to view their friends profiles, comparing the different aspects of their personality, and also what careers they have had suggested.
Where the application is used within an organisational context, we created a suite of easy-to-use admin and analytics tools.
