The Brief

Crafty Counsel wanted to shake up the industry with an ambitious, unique and creative platform that allowed for small 90 second clips of videos. They wanted to create a platform that put the video content first. With the videos being so short, we wanted to design a browsing experience that allowed users to pop-in and out of videos easily.

TThey wanted a site that was easy to manage, utilising services such as Vimeo to manage videos. They also needed help crafting out an art direction and style to go with in the web canvas. Without a glaring marketing competitor, we worked closely to craft out the user experience and architecture.

The Outcome

A instant response

The website is clean, clear, easy to use and matches it's brief. It's received fantastic feedback from the industry. Early indications show great success, 26% of the site's traffic has come from organic search, with a bounce rate of just 44%. Considering the nature of the site, we consider that a huge success. When it came to designing the website, we created a visual cohesive system that allowed us to create consistent, reusable elements that kept design consistent, cohesive and memorable. The photography, videography and whitespace all worked together to create a unique visual direction and content-led design.

We used some groundbreaking technology to make browsing the site a seamless experience, using React and Next JS to make interactions transparent and take performance to the next level.
