Force Technology Launches Vibrant New Website With Second Breakfast

Force Technology International is one of the biggest distributors of mobile accessories in Australia, supplying brands like Jawbone, Lifeproof, Kensington and Mossimo to retailers including Telstra, Optus, Virgin and JB Hi-Fi.

Having evolved their business and culture over the last 10 years, their website did not match the company they had become and was in need of redeveloping to bring it up to date.

The new site is cleaner and more colourful, with a site structure that makes it much easier to find out about the company, their brands and places to buy products.

The blog section is completely new, and features the latest news from their partners as well as internal happenings.

With a huge nationwide network of resellers, there’s a good chance a stockist is nearby. The database can be searched by postcode and suburb, with resellers shown in a neat listing format.

And for LaunchCake? 10am on a Monday is a bit too early for cake (even for us) so we opted for LaunchBake with a selection of treats from New Norcia bakery.

HMS Popup Launches Retro Rumble With Double Crumble

The Retro Rumble is a two day festival of all things retro, with 11 soul, R&B, 60’s garage, rockabilly, blues and swing bands facing off against each other for Rumble in the Underground and a free public event with more bands, markets, food stalls, popup wine bars, fashion shows and plenty more goings on.

To complement traditional print promotional materials, we created a website with a poster look to it, but with more interactivity so that each band’s profile can be viewed. The result is this bold, bright and energetic responsive website. The really impressive part—if you’re part-nerd like us—is that the band lineup and event details are all editable in WordPress, and get automagically fitted into the list thanks to some fancy coding by devmaster Kieran.

The Retro Rumble

Even though I had nothing to do with the project, on behalf of ryhme-lovers everywhere I declared that the Launchcake for Rumble must be Apple Crumble. To match the colour themes for the two events, we ended up having double crumble; one with rhubarb, one with blueberries. It just felt right.

Rise Network Adds New Media Hub to Site

Rise Network is a not-for-profit organisation that began in 1983 serving elderly residents of their local hills community. Today, they are a key provider of support and services in the aged care, disability, youth and mental health sectors. We launched their new site in October last year (see blog here!) and since then there has been a 600% increase in traffic to the site.

With an active blog, social media presence and staff regularly featured in the media, they needed an area to collect all these presences and content for years to come. They wanted it to be easy to find and easy to use.

The new media hub lets Rise to link to their social media profiles, post print and digital media mentions along with the source article, as well as media releases and important documents. Mentions, releases and corporate documents each have their own archive which will allow people to follow Rise’s history in retrospect.

Check it out here and let us know what you think on our Twitter or Facebook!
