Corporate: Tagish Identity

December 26th, 2008

Tagish Ltd have a long-standing reputation for the development of web resources for UK local authorities. CfDR’s brief was to help Tagish identify the perceived value and appropriateness of each of its offerings, and to develop coherent branding and communication resources to convey them. The project began with a research phase involving a brand audit exercise and a stakeholder consultation. The brand audit was used to assess the current brand image, audience types and communication materials currently being used. The stakeholder consultation process had two purposes: firstly it was used to gather key organizational values that the new brand will embody. Secondly, it was used as a participatory tool to enable Tagish employees to contribute to the development of the brand and imbue a sense of ownership. Results from this phase were used to interpret core brand values and guide the design development of the brand. The brand was subsequently implemented through various communication materials such as business cards, letterheads, compliments slips, document folder, website and various document templates such as bid document, fax and PowerPoint presentation.

Interface: Proteomics Software

December 26th, 2008

CfDR were asked to work with the in-house development team of a market leading software company to develop a new product. The new software being developed would provide a single solution for managing an integrated protein analysis ‘proteomics’ workflow (currently conducted in distinct stages and using different machines and software) to analyze samples within a laboratory. To meet the ambitious schedule, the company’s project leader employed the SCRUM agile development process to take account of a highly emergent set of requirements. Due to the tight deadlines as well as trying to respond to the agile method, CfDR decided to present wireframe designs that illustrates 3 different design and structure concepts. This enabled the client to decide on a direction in only a matter of days of CfDR being briefed. The final solution was implemented and demonstrated at the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) 2005 Annual World Congress.
