Key Challenges

  • Limited time
  • Incorporate the brand essence
  • User friendly yet unique interface
  • Choosing brand language which was original and authentic


Digital White Space took a customer-centric approach and applied their robust framework “The Measure”.
Beginning with a business audit, “how and Why” the development will make a difference to the market place and to the ideal customer. Reviewing all current plans, research into the landscape and competitors in order to provide a clear situation analysis.
Brand Strategy,
After a deep dive of a competitor brand audit, the Digital White Space creative team immerse themselves into the business’s culture, customer behaviour. These insights and research were then translated into crafting a distinct proposition for what the brand could stand for, its core values and tone of voice.
Customer Journey Mapping,
was applied to deliver both the website and content strategy. All of this was combined into a Strategic Marketing plan, the “how to” which outlined all marketing online and offline opportunities and how to communicate the unique attributes of the brand and offering. Complete with a 12-month communications plan.
Creative and digital execution,
The above mentioned phases supported the development of the website and all digital marketing assets and platforms including social media platforms, blogs, campaigns, event campaigns, and managed all roll out and optimisation.
