Our role was to design the user experience and visual appearance of the website. The brief was to play the role of the customer and present the business from their perspective. Through a process of workshops and wireframing we developed compelling yet simple user journeys through the site. For us this was about being authentic to the James Cropper brand – a compelling company manufacturing world leading paper used by global brands.

An important part of the process was to have both agencies in at the ground floor. This enabled good conversations on how the project should be approached and challenge each other on how best to achieve.
