Working with Strong Design is always a joy, and our latest ongoing project is no different. Their ability to take direction from developers and product and business-focused team members that are not well-versed in graphic design and interpret it into a beautiful, elegant and usable layout is unparalleled. Their attention to detail, work ethic, and timeliness are fantastic and refreshing. I would always recommend them for any web or application-related layout and design.
When the Levers approached us, they had a killer idea backed by team of mad data scientists ready to make it a reality. They were developing a tool which compiled an organization's online marketing data, and then simulated projections about the future performance of those channels. As Apple fans, they understood that a great idea alone doesn't always get traction. They needed to develop an irresistible brand image, website design and a product interface that made big data easy to understand.
We developed a custom wordmark that referenced the idea of acceleration and upward motion, and selected a moody, monochromatic palette punctuated with pops of candy-colored hues.
The addition of the slightly angular Verb type family and illustrations created from geometric “data bits” created a data-inspired visual language for the brand.
With the brand identity system in place, we set forth to design the marketing website.
We worked closely with the Levers team to design and refine the marketing site so achieve the goal of making the complexity of the Levers product easy for customers to understand.
Once the marketing site was well on its way, we got to working with the Levers team to create an application user interface that made the complex data easier to interact with.
We worked with the Levers team to design pitch deck that explained their vision, and created several custom illustrations to help visually tell this story.
