Harper Collins Publishing wanted to create a platform that would connect book lovers with events hosted by their favourite authors in the UK. We worked closely with them to bring this vision to life. Effective planning and strategy, intuitive design, and a solid build resulted in what became BookGig - a clever web app that keeps bibliophiles in the know. (*BookGig has now been acquired by The Bookseller).
"BookGig was a UX challenge, to reveal as much content about book events as possible without overwhelming the user. The ideal front end technology choice was React, since we could leverage reusability of components to create different sets of very consistent experiences within the app and easily add integrations for personal profiles, which allows users to sign up and save their favourite genres and authors."

Tech Will Save Us
Tech Will Save Us needed a complete rebuild of their existing website. They needed something great - a website that excelled in performance and got them the conversions they needed. We worked together to build both a beautiful user interface and a more functional and easy to use backend. The result: vastly improved bounce rate, better conversions, and ultimately more sales.
"The Tech Will Save Us website is primarily a store for their products. They had some challenges around performance which we were able to investigate in part using Chrome's excellent Lighthouse audit tools. We identified some bottlenecks with page load time, and continue to improve performance on the site by identifying low-performing 3rd party integrations and poorly optimised assets."
