No Label Ventures approached me looking for a unique, story telling, and highly interactive website. Making it their first launch into the world, they wanted something bold and powerful, which stood them apart from traditional VC funds.
I facilitated a 3 hour workshop with the client to fully understand their requirements. The workshop was essential for understanding who their users are, what were the client's goals for the website, defining the brand, and planning for launch.
Understanding the users and their goals
Given the tight time frame we had to build and design the site, we had to limit our user research. During the workshop, we exracted from the client everything they knew about their audience, including who they were, what are the client's goals in relation to the user, and how could we make that happen.
Part of the workshop focused on branding and design direction. We wanted to understand the inspiration behind the name from the founder. No label Ventures' goal is to be provocative and stir interest. The name also talks to the core ethos of the fund, backing those that don't want to be labelled, backing those outside the norm.
Following the outcome of the initial workshop, I crafted two distinct mood boards for presentation. The feedback received during this phase served as a valuable guide, offering confirmation on the preferred design direction to pursue. This collaborative process not only ensured alignment with the client's vision but also provided clarity on the visual direction that resonated most effectively for the brand.
Creating a website with an engaging opening
Our aim was to create a striking and rebellious initial impression, instantly conveying the essence of No Label Ventures in a provocative manner. This approach was intended to deliver a bold and memorable introduction, leaving no ambiguity about the distinctive nature of the company's identity.
Story telling for a targeted message
In crafting the landing page, our emphasis centered on weaving a compelling narrative, strategically tailored to captivate our audience and secure their buy-in to our message. The intention was to present a thoughtful and engaging story that resonates with visitors.
Making the vision come to life
I worked closely with engineering to breathe life into all interactions and animations. This cooperative approach ensured a seamless integration of design elements and functionalities, resulting in a dynamic and engaging user experience.
