Dynavics

Brand identity for a Microsoft implementation partner

Dynavics is a Microsoft implementation partner that helps with the design, development and support of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Aware that their dated brand was holding them back, the Dynavics team challenged us to create a new brand identity. The brand needed to align with their target customers and stand out against competitors.

Brand Identity & Website

The brief

Clients choose Dynavics over their competitors because of their high level of customer service and their passion for what they do. It was important for the new brand identity to capture the spirit and approachability of the team while also representing a market leading tech business.

The existing Dynavics brand included a limited number of colours and assets which made it difficult for the marketing team to effectively create new materials. We needed to expand the brand to provide a broader visual toolkit that could still be easily implemented by the team.

 

 

Imagery

We created branded assets to showcase the Business Central systems that Dynavics deliver. The assets used a combination of screenshots, photography and brand shapes, and included animation options to transform the imagery into dynamic assets.

Icons

To produce a warm and approachable feel to the brand, we created hand drawn icons. The icons were animated for digital use which adds depth and visual interest to the page.

Typography

We selected typefaces that strike a good balance between the straightness and roundness of characters. This delivers a friendly digital feel and aligns Dynavics with businesses such as Google that use font in a similar way.

Brand guidelines

We delivered a set of brand guidelines to outline how the new visual brand should be applied online and offline. The guidelines tie the various brand elements together to ensure that the Dynavics team are able to flexibly and consistently use the new brand identity.

Logo

We created a vibrant new logo that would stand out against competitors. The simple nature of the logo provides the flexibility to use it in a variety of contexts. It is responsive and can be adapted to a monochrome colour palette.

Colour palette

We broadened the brand colour palette to provide a greater level of flexibility and enable Dynavics to assign colours to their different business offerings. We paired the colours to simplify usage for the team.

Dynavics chat box brand shape

Shape and form

We developed a chat box shape to give the brand depth and form. This shape is used within the logo, background patterns and image masks and portals, and ties the range of brand assets together in a unique way that is distinct to Dynavics.

The website

Following the rebrand, we worked with Dynavics to redesign and build their website, implementing the new brand and providing the Dynavics marketing team with the dexterity to manage their content and brand independently.

Our new website design focused on appealing to Dynavics’ target audience and improving conversion rate. We also created an SEO strategy to generate a greater amount of high quality organic traffic to the website.

Tring Park

The challenge

Tring Park School’s website was beginning to look dated and didn’t effectively communicate their offering. With the old website holding them back, Tring were ready to launch a dynamic new brand and website that would stand out in their market and make them the performing arts school of choice.

They sought to improve the number of prospective students finding them in search engines by investing in search engine optimisation, while also improving their conversion rate by revamping their web design and user experience.

Post-launch website results

We significantly improved keyword positions, search engine visibility and organic traffic within the first 6 months of launching the site.

+ 1 60 %
Increase in search engine visibility
+ 1 10 %
Increase in organic traffic
+ 1 300 %

Our approach

We created a modern new website that can be easily edited. We built the website with reusable modules, providing the Tring Park Marketing Team with the flexibility to manage their content, create new pages, and have full autonomy over their page layouts, menus and components.

The new website needed to be multilingual to appeal to international audiences. We implemented multilingual functionality using Google’s translate plugin which is available to UK charities.

View site

Spektrix Integration

We integrated the website with Spektrix, Tring’s event management and booking platform.

Flexible content management

We designed the website using flexible branded components that give Tring’s marketing team the flexibility to create new page layouts and manage their content.

Alumni showcase

We showcase Tring’s previous graduates to build trust and demonstrate the success of Tring Park students.

Digital strategy

Tring Park school is funded through fees. As such, it’s important that the school can demonstrate its qualities to prospective students and parents. As a not-for-profit organisation the school doesn’t exist to turn a profit, however it does need a sound underlying business case.

To put the school on the right digital footing we undertook a digital strategy that would guide the process as to how the school would deliver a return on investment for the website and branding project.

The digital strategy outlined how Tring Park could play to its strengths and how it could increase its market penetration and conversion rates. The goal was to drive more engagement in the pre-visit phase of the new pupil experience, creating awareness and desirability for Tring Park.

With the data clearly outlining how young people are looking for their prospective schools, and representing that Tring Park had a great opportunity to increase its attendance, the website was commissioned in line with the recommendations in the digital strategy.

Brand

We delivered a new brand identity for Tring Park by focusing on their audience and key values. We led the client through a branding process, focusing on their key values and the existing cornerstones of their visual identity. By collaborating with their marketing team, senior team and school governors, we were able to create and deliver an impactful brand that stands out against competitors.

We created a brand design system that provides visual dexterity and enables the marketing team to flexibly use the brand across their online and offline marketing materials. A particular area of focus was creating brand shapes and patterns that could be interlocked with Tring’s photography to produce a unique style that is highly engaging and distinctly Tring’s.

 

“We worked with Plug & Play to deliver a new website and brand that ranks highly in search engines and generates new enquiries for the school. As the UK’s leading performing arts and academic school, we needed our new website to effectively showcase our offering and make us the school of choice for talented students.

We’re absolutely thrilled with the results and the Plug & Play team has been a great support. They made strategic recommendations based on our goals, and their creative team was brimming with ideas for the site design. The team are always on hand for not only technical support, but are also happy to help give their professional opinions and ideas in other aspects as well which is invaluable to us. They are patient and take their time to explain things in detail which has made the experience highly enjoyable.

I can’t recommend Plug & Play enough and I look forward to continuing to work together!”

Our approach

We delivered an interactive and engaging website to communicate Plan’s key messages. We used hover effects and interactions to elevate the design and add depth.

Plan had limited visual assets for their brand so we focused on producing a range of non-photographic components as part of the design process.

Plan’s content is one of their greatest assets and presented a huge opportunity for them to share their expertise. We collaborated with the team to showcase their thought leadership content and make it accessible for their audience to find, search and filter throughout the site.

Animated touchpoints

We used subtle animations throughout the site to add depth to the design.

Perspective magazine

We used issuu to embed Plan’s magazine within the website.

Colour coded content

Following Plan’s brand guidelines, we used colour to segment Plan’s website content and signpost the user journey.

Multi-site 301 strategy

Upon inspection of Plan’s digital footprint, our team identified a number of duplicate live content pages hosted outside of the main Plan domain. We implemented a 301 strategy across 2 domains to provide a consistent user experience and optimise the performance of content.

Brief

We needed to modernise the existing look and feel to create an effortless experience for users. A key part of this user experience process was the in-depth analysis of the existing user flows and mapping user behaviour through their buying journeys. This insight fed into our eCommerce design process with the goal of driving conversion rates up across the website.

Walls and Floors have a large internal team who work solely on the website; updating products, creating promotions and ensuring the content is fresh and up to date. Their old website did not have an easy to use content management system meaning that the internal Walls and Floors team struggled with their day to day tasks. We took a brief from each member of the team to understand how the new website’s Magento eCommerce platform could help them complete their work more accurately and efficiently.

eCommerce SEO

In a competitive consumer eCommerce sector, organic keyword positions in search engines make a huge difference to sales revenue.

We carefully planned the structure of the new website including URL structure, category management and hierarchy, keyword selection and on-page specificity.

The result was the creation of 301 redirects for thousands of highly optimised pages. Over a 4 month period we increased the number of competitive keywords ranking in Google in positions 1 – 3 from 174 to 548 – increasing Walls and Floors’ marketplace visibility by over 127%.

Website features

With thousands of different products and product categories, having a clear navigation to help users quickly find what they are looking for was vital. Our design team worked with Walls and Floors to create a large drop down menu that divides the different tiles by category, colour, usage and popularity to help users quickly find the tile they are looking for.

Conversion rate optimisation

Customer reviews play an important role in the buying journey of any product online and Walls and Floors makes great use of TrustPilot to show potential customers that thousands of others have been impressed with the selection of tiles and the quality of the products and service. We integrated the TrustPilot reviews with the new website to maximise chances of conversion.

LiveChat is an increasingly popular tool used to help assist online visitors, ultimately encouraging them to convert into paying customers. We integrated the new website with Walls and Floors’ chosen third party Live Chat provider; Salesiq from Zoho.

Mobile eCommerce

A large proportion of purchases on the Walls and Floors website are made using mobile phones and tablet devices. To deliver on both SEO and CRO goals we needed to create a custom experience for these visitors, with distinct touch points and call to actions.

Integrating Sage 200 with Magento

To ensure data integrity across the business Walls and Floors use Sage 200 to manage products, stock, customers, orders and deliveries.

Our integration between Sage 200 and Magento was crucial to the success of this online shop. By implementing a live data migration process we were able to dove-tail Sage data with data from the legacy website, providing the business with a unified data set with which to launch their new website.

The challenge

We were challenged to design an informative new website that would increase lead generation for the college. The website needed to appeal to both existing and prospective students, parents and visitors, and encourage admissions enquiries.

The website design and interaction aesthetic needed to embody the high standing reputation of the college and incorporate their new brand and colour palette

Our approach

Our design team considered the user journeys at all times throughout the design and build process of the new website. The menu was shaped to clearly direct the user through the defined user flow, enabling users to explore the courses and subjects on offer, along with other information like fees and FAQs.

A secondary menu with quick anchor-point links was added to the site to segment the large amount of information into digestible chunks that increase engagement with the content.

Landing page strategy

Specific landing pages were created and optimised for search engine rankings and to guide the user journey; helping users to start their user journey from the most relevant page.

Reassurance

Testimonials were strategically placed throughout the site to reassure prospective students and their parents ahead of enquiring.

Extracurricular focus

The design and content of the site puts an emphasis on the fact that the college provides both academic and extracurricular benefits, reassuring prospective students and their parents that settling in and making friends is just as important as succeeding academically.

Digital Strategy

Oxford International College’s previous website contained old content that was inconsistently represented and categorised. We identified new keyword groups and enforced a one-group-per-page approach as part of a broader digital marketing strategy.

The college already held some high rankings in Google, however it was clear that they were not ranking for the right keywords. We worked with the Oxford International College team to select high quality keywords that would generate valuable organic traffic to the new website.

Our design team created a concise and clear layout with a structured menu that aligned with the key user journeys and the priorities of the target audience. The website user journeys act as educational tools to guide visitors through the information they need, before encouraging them to enquire.

Appealing to students

Imagery has been used throughout the site to connect with prospective students and showcase the social and educational opportunities available to them.

This section of the site allows each user to learn and prepare for their chosen course at Oxford Science Studies, finding key information such as arrival details and timings. 

Testimonials

The testimonials tab enables prospective students and parents to review previous student experiences with the school, acting as a reassurance element and aiding the conversion funnel. 

SEO improvements

We worked closely with the Oxford Science Studies marketing team to build out a number of keyword groups that would help to attract new highly aligned visitors to the website. These keywords focused on the different courses provided, as well as a number of specific search terms that were valuable to Oxford Science Studies.

As specialists in GCSE revision courses, many of Oxford Science Studies’ keywords came with mixed intent. As an example, the keyword “GCSE revision” seems like a natural choice, especially given the high search volume. However the intent of this keyword comprises of students looking for GCSE revision materials and online resources rather than exclusively paid revision courses. The final keyword selection perfectly balanced searcher intent, search volume and difficulty levels.

Dynamic brand patterns

We drew on inspiration from ship sonar systems and water ripples to create a series of dynamic brand patterns that featured different interlocking circles. Implementing movement within the brand added depth and personality, as well as creating a more engaging digital experience.

Infographics and animations

Infographics and animations were produced to create an engaging design that didn’t rely on written text.

Brand identify refresh

A series of icons, shapes and patterns were produced as part of the brand identity refresh.

Our approach

We introduced new colours and brand patterns to Anemoi’s brand to add depth and flexibility. The new brand was implemented throughout the website to provide a dynamic and engaging user experience. We then created a set of brand guidelines to formalise how the brand and assets should be used by the team.

To compliment the brand work, our designers created a number of infographics to support the written website copy and communicate key messages.

In order to create an engaging website with lots of movement and transitions, we introduced an interactive design with parallax effects, colour transitions and hover states.

We codified some of the brand patterns into dynamic assets that could be used throughout the site. Our team implemented an interactive scroll animation on the homepage which responds to the scroll speed of the user and demonstrates Anemoi’s technology.

Digital strategy

We collaborated with Anemoi to develop a digital strategy to increase their search engine visibility. Our marketing team worked closely with Anemoi to produce a comprehensive keyword strategy that would improve their keyword rankings and drive high quality organic traffic to their new new website.

Our challenge

Kite challenged us to rebuild their website to create a digital identity that would elevate their business and appeal to their target audience.

Kite had a number of key goals for the new website. They were looking to improve their search engine rankings, generate new highly aligned enquiries, and convert more visitors into customers.

View site

A polished design

We created a clean look and feel in line with Kite Creative’s brand.

Implementing the brand

We applied Kite’s brand assets into a digital format for the website, using shape and form to elevate the user experience.

The visual menu

Our team developed a visual menu to highlight Kite’s portfolio and stand out in their market. 

Our approach

We worked with Kite’s existing website designs to elevate the user experience and improve the search engine optimisation.

We took an image lead approach, drawing upon Kite’s bank of high quality portfolio imagery to engage visitors. We created a Recent Projects page using a grid format to showcase Kite’s portfolio and demonstrate a range of interiors and services.

A second tier navigation containing imagery was introduced to offer an alternative way of browsing the website, helping Kite stand out from their competitors.

Digital strategy

Improving keyword rankings and organic traffic was a critical part of the Kite website redesign. They had good competitive metrics but their website code wasn’t strong enough to leverage these metrics to secure the ranking positions in Google.

We identified pages within the Kite website that could act as landing pages for organic search traffic and started to build up keyword groups around them. The goal was to to drive traffic into these pages directly from the search engines rather than all traffic going via the homepage. This would increase alignment with prospective customers and reduce bounce rate.

A gap analysis was conducted to highlight the keywords that Kite had the greatest statistical chance of success with and the best keywords were optimised for throughout the site.
