Web Development, Mobile App Development, Intranet
Spangler Candy asked us to develop their major brand and corporate sites, as well as a series of iOS apps to help bring the DumDums brand into the digital age.
Flick-a-Pop is a fast-paced twitcher game that prompts players to "eat" as many DumDums as possible in a limited period of time. We incorporated the pop flavors, colors, and wrappers directly into the gameplay to enhance product and brand awareness. The game ties into Apple's Game Center to promote sharing and social interaction. Since its release, the app has had over 1.5 million downloads.
DumDums Drums is an iPad app that challenges kids to follow the Dum Dums Drum Man as he rocks it out on stage. Users play a game of Simon Says by imitating what the Drum Man plays on his drum set. The longer you play, the harder it becomes. The game encourages competition and multiple plays and is tied to social media. It's a fun, front-of-mind brand extension for DumDums.
We redesigned Spanger's web presences, too. For the DumDum Pops site, FORM designed a fun and welcoming interface and used a combination of programming, design, and illustration to introduce online brand enhancements including an online game, screensavers and wallpapers, an interactive trivia quiz, online coloring books and a flavor-voting contest. Spangler's corporate site ties into their CRM to allow for bulk purchasing.
"Our eCommerce sales continue to grow rapidly, and our websites and eCommerce are recognized in the candy industry as being one of the best. We have been with FORM for almost 10 years, which is a long time in any industry, and a testament to how we feel about the work they do."
Web Development, Identity Design and Print Collateral
High-end food photographers BurkleHagen asked us to redesign their brand identity and web presence. For the identity design, we were asked to create a mark that is modern and friendly, and we flooded their identity collateral with fun, full-color samples of their work. The bold but minimal website interface allows BurkleHagen's impeccable food photography to shine as the visual focus. Viewers can browse the portfolio in glorious full-screen, yet the site is speedy and responsive for mobile. The site is built on our LUCY CMS, so BurkleHagen's staff can easily update and manage the site content and portfolio. We incorporated SEO best practices so the new site ranks high for their target search terms.
Website Design and Development, CMS + CRM
Interior and Graphic Design Consultancy, Richardson Design, asked FORM to create a website they could use to showcase their work. We designed a visually impactful and immersive web presence with minimal navigation elements to showcase their work, and our user-friendly backend CMS allows Richardson's staff to easily update the site and build customized private client presentations.
Mobile App Development
FrogTape® Designer for iPad and the DuckTape app demonstrates the fun and flexibility of ShurTech Brands' painter's tapes.
The FrogTape® app lets users can apply FrogTape® and ShapeTape™ to virtual walls, create unique patterns and choose paint colors. Their creations can then be placed into a variety of virtual rooms and saved for reference or editing later.
The DuckTape app is a twitcher game that challenges users to unspool as much DuckTape as possible while trying to memorize matching patterns in a limited amount of time.
