Gonzalo

Bon Appetit

Gonzalo believes that every person should have access to a natural and healthy source of meat. We couldn’t agree more.

 

In the past couple of years, Gonzalo gained a solid reputation for high-quality meats and excellent customer service. So when he got in touch with us, we were more than happy to revamp his old website.

 

Our appetizing design is a delight for the eyes. We used warm colors and images to create a cosy experience. But at the same time, we used contrasts and white space to make the product overviews as clean as possible. Exactly, we focused on the customer experience. We built several routes for people to access the website and discover Gonzalo’s selection. The entire website is built on top of a powerful Shopify framework.

 

The result is simple: this is a website we loved building and enjoy using for those summer BBQ’s.

Wine People

Cheers

Ah, Wine People. This wine import idea is bringing together two of our favorite things: wine and people. We want to encourage young start-ups and daring entrepreneurs living their dream. At Club Soda, the glass is always half full and we hope Wine People’s business cards will be the start of something beautiful.

 

Our designers went crazy and came up with something red, white and funky.

Asquan Ltd

App, web & more

Asquan Ltd is a Hong Kong based product development, sales and marketing company specializing in the health and beauty sector. They have offices in Hong Kong, US and Europe.

 

They needed a digital sales catalogue to drive sales. It also had to showcase their innovative mindset. Thus, we created a sleek, web-based application that runs offline. The custom CMS enables full control over the content. Several upgrades turned the application into a powerful, comprehensive sales tool.

 

At the same time, our team developed over 75 digital product models and packaging concepts for one of the Asquan brands. We assembled a team of 3D modelers, photographers and Photoshop artists. Together, they created some of the finest models within a tight budget.

 

Furthermore, we completed the digital brand universe with a beautiful, responsive, multi-lingual website. By including website control into the application CMS, Asquan now only has to update content once.

And finally, we were asked to create a company profile for digital distribution and printing.

 

Our cooperation continues to this day and we are looking forward to the next challenge.

Aspire Music

Looks Like Music

Aspire Music is a modern, contemporary music school based in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. They offer private music lessons in singing, guitar, keyboards, bass and drums in a friendly and welcoming environment.

 

Their approach is quite different from most music schools in Hong Kong. So we designed a funky website with a little touch of rock ‘n roll.

Gravity Supply Chain

Center of Attention

We met Gravity Supply Chain in the end of 2014. At the time, they were an ambitious start-up. They were in the middle of developing powerful supply chain management technology. You could see they were about to conquer the world. So naturally, we couldn’t wait to help them.

 

First, we built a mobile responsive framework on top of a WordPress CMS. It would be the first step in their digital marketing strategy. Gravity’s innovative spirit was clear from the start. So, we got creative and developed custom icons and  a dynamic navigation bar. Attention to small details turned this basic framework into something that said “we are here.”

 

Next, we work on their 1st generation UI. Their online application allows users to understand and contextualize their supply chain data. By visualizing and organizing massive amounts of data, we produced a UI that is accessible, intuitive and beautiful to look at. Just because we were having so much fun, we designed a modern login page with a full screen video background. The Gravity user experience started before users even logged in.

 

This was a truly unique experience and we look back at our cooperation with fond memories.

We turned a fresh, new corporate design into a multi-lingual, mobile-friendly accounting website. The design merges traditional and modern elements to great a trustworthy, yet different, look-and-feel. Thanks to the smart use of whitespace, we created spacious tranquility. A great accomplishment because in all fairness: it is rather text-heavy. Needless to say: we enjoyed this project on many levels.

InCruising

Cruising Is Fun

InCruising is a Hong Kong based travel agency. They specialize in customized cruising packages for all ages. When we first spoke, it became clear that cruising is much more than being on a big boat. It’s a complex collection of activities, culture and traveling for singles, couples and families.

 

We designed a trifold brochure to target everybody and nobody. It offers options for adventurous singles as well as family holiday oriented grandparents. We optimized InCruising’s brand colors for printing and it turned out to be spectacular.

Playful Learning

Meetutor is a start-up company in Hong Kong. They developed an iPhone app that offers flexible, private language tutoring. They are young, professional and have a passion for education. The Meetutor app arranges itself around its students’ schedules, not the other way around.

We developed a logo for their brand. We chose something fresh, blue and talkative. The result is a familiar looking logo, using white and blue contrasts to create an energetic result.

Gonzalo

Bon Appetit

Every time we look at it, this homepage makes us hungry. The navigation is intuitive and invites visitors to discover a wide selection of products.

The entire website is focused around the product pages. A custom filter allows visitors to quickly look for product categories. We created a seamless experience to create a superior customer experience.

Asquan Ltd

App, web & more

We created beautiful packaging concepts. Personally, I didn’t know much about beauty products but now I consider myself an expert in mascara and eyeliners.

And we also develop digital product mockups. They will allow Asquan to change products easily into next season’s colors!

To help Asquan’s sales team, we created an iPad application with custom CMS that is available offline. It contains all products, POS material and brand stories with multiple options to filter and visualize information.

We transformed the text-heavy company profile in an easy-to-read and attractive document. It comes in a horizontal and vertical version. Both versions were delivered with in a high res and email option.

Aspire Music

Gravity Supply Chain

Center of Attention

Gravity was looking for a basic website framework in which they could grow identity and content while they were working on their technology.

The website looked great on all tablet with custom made icons and a couple of small details that make all pages stand out just a bit more.

For Gravity 1st generation interface, we create a full video background login page. We were crazy about this one.

Their first generation dashboard was designed to show as much information as possible without overwhelming the visitor. Each tile allows users to drill deeper into data.

For some of the more complex concepts, we created several dynamic and engaging slides to explain the core concepts of Gravity.

Fung Yu CPA
