    Headhunted by Headhunters

    Saturday, August 13, 2011

    Bungalow Industries’ design consultancy talents were recruited by two leading London firms to take their online presences to the next level in brand positioning and engagement.

    Having previously worked with premier brand Perrett Laver on their corporate literature, we were called in again this time to redesign their website and reposition their brand, asserting the firm as a leader in executive search globally. Understanding their needs and requirements was vital and a full-on day of back-to-back meetings with the Directors and lead Consultants from each Practice Group was organised to provide a fuller insight into their operation and business goals.

    Fully briefed, we set about devising the new site architecture and design, providing each Practice Group with its own identity derived from the original brand mark — and blueprinting a new site within which the Consultants can come to the fore with their news, views and success stories.

    As part of our sweeping revision, we employed a module-based page template which is being implemented phase by phase as their blogging, library of media-bytes and catalogue of global appointments grows. All artwork files and a walk-through site were given to their long-standing developer, Mark Ingman at Valhalla Software who set about building the front end and bolting it onto a bespoke, user-friendly, Content Management System (CMS) for the Consultants to upload positions, track and manage applications, and keep their Practice Group news up to date.

    With Phase 1 in place, Perrett Laver are successfully presenting themselves to a wider audience and being commissioned to seek out new talent for positions at the highest levels in companies, institutions and organisations worldwide.

    After crafting the identity for Society in 2009, this progressive search firm came back to Bungalow Industries to commission us to redesign their website's homepage to bring it more up-to-date and inline with their growing client base, charitable activities and social media presence.

    Having not been involved in the original website design, we were eager and excited to be able to roll-out our identity work and vision to create a new dynamic, engaging and social media-savvy interface. Our proposed design was approved without amends, offering a much more customisable layout with hero banners, trailers to content within the site and greater potential for keeping Society's homepage as fresh and current as the team themselves.

    As with the Perrett Laver website, changes are being implemented in phases, many in place already and Society have been excitedly tweeting about their site’s relaunch to their growing following!

    Headhunted again, and hot on the heels of our work with Perrett Laver and Society, we were asked to create the identity and website design for a new global recruitment brand soon to enter the market. Keep your eyes on our blog - we'll keep you posted!
