DesignThinkers Academy

9 hubs representing 25 countries, maintained by 9 different administrators. The DesignThinkers Academy network is a series of subsites in a multisite providing each Admin with access to their own section of the overall website. Admins have the ability to build their own features, adjust design elements and personalise their pages.

We built a custom calendar plugin for admins to easily build courses, control calendar displays and feature courses from other hubs, as well as a custom banner builder and signup procedure.

We utilise a Content Delivery Network and Object Caching to provide a fast browsing experience to all hubs across the globe, ensuring all participants have a great user experience when accessing course descriptions and materials.

Spaces quiz & 10-year celebration

Spaces offers creative working environments with a unique entrepreneurial spirit, celebrating 10 years in 2018. To commemorate the achievement, Spaces devised a competition to win 1 of 10 coworking memberships, and tasked Instance along with Multitude to tackle the project.

Instance built a microsite and multi-step quiz, featuring svg animations, various types of interactions, and an engaging user interface, as well as a convenient share to enter campaign. So far the campaign is performing very well, with an 8% conversion rate from visitors to the micro site to enquiries.

Madeby 020

Made by 020 is a network program for ambitious MBO students in the Netherlands. An easy-to-use system for students and teachers was required to make resources, information and the latest news readily available and intuitive to find.

We built a detailed filtering system for each sector, a creative and accessible layout for challenges and trajectories, and a clean and concise mobile experience.

Time was spent on taking the design to the next level with implementation of animations, transitions and effects throughout, creating an engaging and interactive user experience.

Pinkman Records

Pinkman Records is a forward-thinking music label based in the Netherlands. We built them an eCommerce store to support their wide range of product types, as well as the various content types they needed to engage and communicate with their audience.

We used multi-layered catalogue filtering to enable users to discover what they’re looking for, as well as a detailed search system to ensure they find what they need.

We used React to build a dynamic music player and playlist, built for people to play songs, albums and mixes so they can enjoy the music and plan their next purchase.

Fonds kwadraat

Fonds Kwadraat is a platform for up and coming artists looking to secure investment from people who are interested in supporting the arts. Investors can explore the works of funded artists, the results of successful investment and completion of commissioned work.

These works can be explored through filtered content across various content types including events which are discovered through a custom agenda. Content is displayed using ajax and a dynamic, gridded layout for an interesting, exciting and engaging experience.

Artists may apply for funding through a multi-page, save and resume signup form, designed and built for ease of use and clear delivery of information.

Roffa Mon Amour

Roffa Mon Amour is a film platform showing cinematic talent from around the world that features a Film Festival every year. For the 2018 redesign, Roffa needed an easy way for visitors to find, sort and book films both during and outside the Film Festival period.

Live search and various filtering systems were used to achieve this outcome, and enhanced with detailed animations and effects. Looping video was added to the header to push the film festival aesthetic, along with unique SVG mouse events to push for a memorable and lasting impression.
