From his time in the industry, Jon Dodd has creatively led a variety of projects with some of the following brands...
Luna & Luci is a new venture from an established footwear design company, who supply large chain brands such as Debenhams and John Lewis with products.Once the branding work had been undertaken by Alloneword, the Shopify website was created, employing all the new brand aesthetic and values. The focus was on pace of reading, interactions and simplicity, with extensive critical thinking around personas and journeys.
Following on from a successful rebrand by Alloneword, Precise UK commissioned a design and build of their site onto the WordPress platform. Keeping in mind the experienced and adaptable approach to their services, the new site was designed with building owners and facilities managers as a focus, with special consideration made for interaction and animation.
Existing client Geo Journey wanted to take their current site and completely reimagine from the ground up, with special consideration to the unique purchase journey of their subscription based products. Alloneword utilised a variety of technical hooks, integrations and bespoke custom development to create a custom Shopify store which perfectly wraps around their brand and product offerings.
“I was quickly put at ease with their competence, problem solving, endless patience and excellent work ethic. I was given plenty of support in the form of a manual, videos, emails and phone calls.
