We work with fantastic people to create beautiful systems that improve peoples lives.
We are delighted to introduce you to another one of our fabulously British designer clients, this one from the world of fashion, Goat. Created by Jane Lewis, the label began as the 'go-to cashmere range for the fashion cognoscenti.' Over ten years on, it is now a well-recognised brand synonymous with understated luxury.
Before we start telling you what we have planned for this year at Bite Studio, we wanted to tell you all about what a brilliant year 2012 was for us. Over the next few weeks we’re going to take you through some of our highlights and the fantastic projects that we worked on last year. To kick off we’re going stateside...
2012 was a fantastic year for us at Bite Studio and we've returned from the Christmas break stuffed with Turkey but eager and excited to take on 2013 and the new, exciting challenges it's going to bring us!
Bite have launched a fully responsive website for world renowned fashion brand GOAT Fashion. We worked alongside GOAT to provide full design and UX to create a seamless user journey from browsing to basket on a range of mobile devices. By using the latest responsive design techniques we were able to focus the user experience for desktop, tablet and mobile browsing.
We built the website using the open source e-commerce engine Magento. This provides a fully scalable system that will allow Goat to expand product ranges in the future, and move into international sales.
Over half of the project cost was re-couped within just 4 weeks from site launch. Visitor engagement has increased 225% and we have seen a 59% increase in returning visitors.
It was a great night at the European Diversity Awards. The Do Something Different platform developed by Bite Studio was chosen for a Google sponsored technology innovation award. Do Something Different is a groundbreaking online behaviour change programme that makes it easy to embrace new behaviours and break the habits that limit us.
We have just launched a new catalogue website for industry leading book publisher Transworld. The website is leveraging the same core engine that powers Random House publishing.
The bibliographic data, D2C and customer accounts are all powered by the central platform, which allows publishers to release full catalogue sub-sites and genre based catalogue sites for a fraction of the development costs. These sub-sites can leverage all the features available to the platform and can have their own unique design.
We are currently working on a Journey planning mobile web app for Brighton & Hove Council. The web app provides the council with a platform agnostic mobile presence to their existing online technology. We have worked with Brighton & Hove Council to create wireframes and prototypes to optimise the IA and usability for set user personas. We are conducting user testing sessions to analyse and respond to user feedback and will be optimising the interface design dynamically based on screen size.
We are chuffed to bits to hear that we have won an award for the design and build of the Tom Dixon website. We have been working closely with the team at Tom Dixon to help move the company towards international e-commerce. There are some great new features that will be appearing on the site as we continue to improve and adapt the content.
Bite Studio have recently completed an interactive window installation for the internationally renowned retail chain GAP. The interactive features a host of cutting edge technologies and custom built software. A custom-written application using a motion capture sensor measures the activity in a defined zone on the sidewalk, to activate game states that are displayed on the LCD video wall on the other side of the shop window.
