Clever Starfish receives WA Web Award for Just In Time Gourmet and makes finals for the Australian Web Awards

On Wednesday night, some of the gang here strolled down from our new office in Money Street (moving in party coming soon!) to enjoy the Australian Web Awards State event. It’s a great opportunity to say hello to our peers, competitors and friends – something which is a bit of a rarity, making this night a not-to-miss event. It never fails to reaffirm the ever-increasing standard of award-winning websites in WA!

We had 6 sites up for awards including Fly By Night and My Emporium featured below, all of which we are very proud – something that we celebrated before heading to the awards.

My Emporium

It was just icing on the #LaunchCake to win an e-commerce award for Just in Time Gourmet!

Just In Time Gourmet Website

You can read all about it in our launch blog for the site, when you have a moment.

The spread of recipients was broader this year (which was great!) and included Hancock Creative, Bam Creative, Juicebox Creative, Longtail, The WA Museum, Humaan, Clarity Communications, Tom Oliver and Jesse Yuen.

Although winning an award on the night is great recognition for the work we are putting out, we still find the biggest reward is feedback from the client that the site has made the impact we planned together, which in this case included the following;

For the Just In Time Gourmet customers

  • increased efficiency for searching and finding products and hampers
  • fuss-free and error-free ordering of loose products and pre-made hampers
  • the ability to add more than one recipient address to an order
  • the ability for a customer to build their own hamper
  • all of the above to be simple, easy and intuitive on a phone, tablet or computer

For the Just In Time Gourmet team

  • easy management of orders and streamlined payment processes
  • easy syncing of products and orders with MYOB
  • flexible and fuss-free management of products, categories and product features
  • enjoyment not pain, when doing anything with the site
  • build in SEO-friendly layout with flexible and easily-editable content

Mondolaunche Quattro!

Last week was high-end lighting supplier Mondoluce’s 18th birthday, and to celebrate they not only threw a party, but launched three new brands and websites plus a dedicated blog.

Beautiful and functional—just the way it should be

We worked closely with Mondoluce’s branding partner The Globe, establishing a site architecture and browsing experience that would allow users to find lighting fixtures by usage, brand, product and project type. From the industry audience feedback we’ve received, this functionality—combined with The Globe’s slick design—has made their task of sourcing lighting a whole lot easier!

Una grande famiglia

Mondoluce now has three distinct brands in their family; Mondoluce, Metalight, and Mialuce. The three brand sites and Illuminati blog are all separate domains, but are conveniently managed together using WordPress Multisite and a custom Tentacle catalogue system.

Tentacle handles brands, products, projects, downloads and filtering options, ensuring content is always displayed neatly and consistently. Everything is managed from the one interface, and can be set to show on any of the three brand sites.

Effortlessly fresh

With the exception of the featured banner images, everything you see on each home page is generated automatically from product, project, news and brand content, meaning minimal effort is required to keep it looking fresh.

LaunchCake is yet to be eaten on this one because we were too busy eating tapas at the LaunchParty to plan it! Watch this space for a followup blog…
