We are an ambitious digital delivery partner with a mission to turn ideas into reality.

the book of graphene


Digital disruption is having an extraordinary impact globally. We set up Studio Graphene on the principle that innovation doesn’t need to be scary, expensive and slow. Technology offers us an amazing opportunity to change the world we live in on an unprecedented scale.

Since our inception in 2014, our business has been built from the ground up, establishing a team of experienced, energetic and knowledgable creatives and developers who work hard every day to achieve for our clients and deliver on promises. We want to work with organisations, government bodies and businesses who share our passion for innovation to turn great ideas into reality.

What we do

Our speciality is using existing technology in new ways. We work closely with you during the initial phases of goal setting, user journey mapping, prototyping and specification writing right through into branding, UX and UI design, the full build stage, and beyond. We utilise our own custom-built products and tried and tested solutions to aid and inform our projects from beginning to end. We have sat as co-pilot in over fifty startup ventures; we know what works.

8

Our agile approach facilitates working in short sprints, allowing us to produce frequent and tangible deliverables, iterating and adapting the product as your project moves forward.

Our bread and butter is creating beautiful and functional design pieces, complex web builds, mobile apps and digital marketing strategy for both B2B and B2C startups and more established companies. We are also kings and queens of IoT technologies, have extensive experience with NFC, beacon technologies, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Voice and Visual Search and are lean, mean, MVP-producing machines.


what we do

Working as an extension of your team, we love to work on blank canvas projects. Projects where we get to bring your idea to life - in fact, we brought over a dozen new ideas to life last year alone.

9

We’re software and programming language agnostic and believe in applying the most appropriate tools to the task, so if you have a preferred technology stack, we’re sure we can work with it.

How we do it

16

We like to work closely with our clients, as an extension of their internal teams rather than a bolt-on solution. We always allocate dedicated Project or Product Managers to your project, but you’ll also likely have direct lines of communication to our designers, developers, analysts and QA testers throughout the project ensuring that your voice is heard, every step of the way.


how we do it

Team Augmentation Sometimes, a team needs an extra resource or three. That’s why we launched our team augmentation service - a trusted and experienced bunch of Studio Graphene designers and developers who you can second for a day, a week, a month or longer to work on your in-house projects. And don’t panic, if you need someone to wrangle them, we have a full Project Management team for that.

17

Studio Graphene Ventures Have a great idea, but need a partner in crime? Through our ventures arm we help build and launch start-up ideas. We invest in select early stage companies, taking a share of the stress, hugs and ramen that come with getting a product to market.

Do you know why most projects fail? Poor planning. Between us, we’ve got decades of experience under our collective belt, and we’ve seen all number of gotchas, snagging points and outright botches. That’s why we launched our startup strategy service; to aid founders in setting realistic goals, fleshing out user journeys, building comprehensive specifications, formulating prototypes and consulting on the who, why, when and how of their big idea.


What’s more, we even built our own tool - “DEFINE” - for all and any startups to use, allowing non-technical founders to share their vision in a way that user experience and technical experts can translate into a real life product.

23

Whether you’re at the beginning of your start-up journey, or have gotten a little way in but want to call a strategic time out, we can help you get your plans straight, and give you the best chance of success.

You know what they say... fail to prepare and prepare to fail.

Goal setting

strategy

Working with our Product Management and Project Planning team, your business goals will be ascertained, targets set and KPIs produced. Without clear project goals, it’s near impossible to know whether the product is a success. This is why we encourage, and work with, companies big and small to commit their goals to paper. We can also work with you on roadmapping and budgeting, turning your creative vision into a clearly executable plan.

25

These goal setting sessions are hosted by our best strategic minds, creatives and developers, ensuring we look at a project as a whole. You will be included every step of the way to ensure important decisions remains yours.


the book of graphene

Impact Mapping If the key to a great product is a clear concept, then the key to a clear concept is rigorous user experience research, married with concise and considered user journey impact mapping. Sound intimidating? It needn’t - our strategists and UX designers documented over 1,000 user journeys in 2017 alone; an average of 50 per project.

26

We’re well versed in taking an idea out of someone’s mind, getting it down on paper, and evaluating every part.


Getting all your requirements agreed and down on paper ensures that your project runs smoothly, and that you end up with the product you wanted.

A good specification will leave you under no illusion as to what will be delivered, and also acts as a singular point of reference for the entire project team. In short - the specification may well become your holy text during your project (although fortunately these holy texts are open to revisions!). Measure twice, cut once.

In the US alone the rework cost of failed software projects or abandoned products is estimated to be upwards of $75bn a year, and major contributing factors to this rework is cited to be imprecise specifications and insufficient planning and analysis.

Paul Michaels Director of Consulting at Metri Measurement Consulting, UK 27

Design and Technical Specifications may not be the most glamourous part of the job, but speak to any Product Manager, Project Director, Designer or Developer and they’ll all tell you the same thing - a well written specification is essential.

Alchemy Wings

the book of graphene

Bringing the country’s corner stores straight to your door

Initially conceived by Diageo, but with sponsors including Coca-Cola, Mars, Heineken and Treasury Wine Estates, Alchemy Wings is a delivery service for alcohol, soft drinks and snacks through innovative technology and a courier network. We worked with the concept team to unlock how we could use the UK’s fragmented convenience store network to offer a fast delivery service to customers for impulse purchases.

28

The solution had an incredibly short time frame to test the market, and needed to be completed effectively for a limited budget, with no wasted code - to achieve this we conducted in-depth research throughout the process, putting real boots on the ground to fine tune our strategy as we progressed.

Alchemy Wings received wide press coverage when the product launched, including a feature in The Times!

Mooba

The branding for Mooba had to stand out from the competition in an arguably crowded marketplace, and needed to be accompanied by a full suite of custom iconography and illustration.

We conducted cultural research on Japanese design trends, undertook a full sweep of competitor reviews to ensure that Mooba utilised unique colourways and ensured we used techniques to emphasise the ‘movement’ so inherent to the Mooba concept. The final branding piece satisfied all client requirements, and test audiences loved it!

Your customers should be able to find what they’re looking for, and quickly. A confusing interface is an online death knell, and a website not designed to perform on mobile? Wave goodbye to your conversion rate, and your SEO positioning.

We’re sure we don’t need to tell you that a well-researched and consciously designed website is an essential business need, but did you know that nearly 8 in 10 people said they would stop engaging with a site that doesn’t display well on their device?

Our design team can make sure that your users are kept happy, on-site and engaged.

41

In an age where people’s first instinct is to Google it, your brand’s reputation can be ruined by poor online presentation.

Huckletree

Huckletree came to us with a designer’s dream brief; they already had a strong brand to work with, and wanted a new website that reflected their creativity, their playfulness, and a site that - like them - didn’t follow the rules.

42

We integrated real-life interior design features from Huckletree’s spaces into the website design; utilising the same graphical designs on the site pages as are found in the Huckletree interior walls, incorporating the neon signs found across Huckletree’s common areas as on-page elements and featuring notes across the site, in founder Gabriela’s handwriting.

the book of graphene 44

We wanted the site to nod towards the non-conformist elements of web brutalism, whilst also providing a seamless user experience and harnessing all the key facets of conversion rate optimisation (they run a business, after all).


45

The designs were brought to life by our crack team of front-end developers using ReactJS, a relatively new JavaScript library on the block, famed for enabling coders to build fast and fierce user interfaces.

design

We featured dynamic animations throughout the design, as well as unexpected transition effects between content, to provide an online nod to the energy of the Huckletree communities. We also kept onsite imagery in a predominantly square format; an ode to one of the Huckletree demographic’s guilty pleasures - Instagram!

You couldn’t be blamed for thinking that app design is just like website design, but for a small screen - unfortunately, you couldn’t be further from the truth. User behaviour on mobile, and in apps specifically, is a world away from their behaviour on your website - and we bring in-depth user research into our app design process right from the beginning, ensuring that customers don’t just use your app, but actually enjoy doing so (and want to tell their friends about you too!).

Ever seen an incredible chair in a restaurant, or the most perfect lamp in a hotel, and wanted to know where to find it? Design Life is a new iOS app that leverages Google Vision’s API, combined with a bespoke business logic element that we developed, to create high-power image recognition functionality. Through the app, users can upload a photo of any interior design piece, and Design Life will either tell you exactly where you can buy it or, if its a vintage piece, they’ll help you get the closest match. The Design Life app utilises clean and spacious design to ensure that not only is the UX seamless, but that all the focus is on the products.

Using AI and algorithms to create intelligence on disruptive technologies and digital innovations.

We worked with Growth Enabler to create design assets for their product suite and market pulse reports. Traditional research reports have lacked an engaging visual element and we wanted to address this by creating iconography and a visual style that would make it much easier to consume complex research and insights.

52

Following the successful launch of the AR / VR Market Pulse Report, Growth Enabler made the decision to use our work as the template for all subsequent Market Pulse Reports. What’s more, the design assets created were also subsequently leveraged for further company communications, both internal and external.
