Rawnet Nominated for 9 Industry Awards

The digital award season is finally here, giving agencies and brands the chance to show off their digital project prowess. Having entered our fair share of awards, we are delighted to announce that Rawnet has been nominated for 9 awards in the past 2 months. These include:


We have already had an amazing first half of 2014 thanks to our hard work during 2013, having been nominated for a Webby Award and placing 2nd in The Drum’s Independent Agency Census Elite. Below are some of our recent project highlights:

ITV Studios

ITV Studios are the UK’s largest production company, making and selling some of the best TV shows in the world. They chose Rawnet as their digital partner to fulfil a number of digital requirements, including identifying a way to make it easier for prospects to find, browse and watch programme content.

Our challenge was to create a single integrated CRM-based solution, complete with detailed prospect information, spanning both the website and their presence at the huge MIPCOM and MIPTV exhibitions in Cannes.

To overcome this problem, Rawnet created one ‘super-system’ to integrate both the offline event system with the online system - and then tie all activity into a single CRM. The new integrated website was given a custom CMS to allow ITV to manage their huge library of ITV Studio’s programme content, both on their website and at offline events.

The clever combination of a centralized database, iPad sales toolkit and bespoke local video server, enabled us to answer the brief perfectly and save ITV Studios hundreds of hours in programme maintenance and event organisation. ITV Studios can now exhibit all of their programme content offline, capturing prospect details and integrating these back into their main online marketing website.

Outlook Expeditions

Every year, Outlook Expeditions gives over 3,500 young people the opportunity to develop new skills and confidence through life-changing expeditions worldwide. This project touched every part of the Outlook Expedition business, bringing together a brand new IT infrastructure to help the company see rapid growth through the next few years. This wasn’t your standard web build.

Our first step to achieving a complete digital marketing overhaul was to transform their customer-facing website, inspiring parents and teachers to explore a broad range of destinations, whilst facilitating the conversation and capturing leads.

We created a tablet-based sales toolkit running off the same database and asset library as the website. We did this to ensure the global consistency of content, images and pricing. The toolkit enables Outlook’s sales advisors to showcase and configure the various trip options to schools, even without a 3G or Wifi connection.

The final component of the solution was an online trip management portal for parents. Rawnet developed a parent portal that streamlines the entire process from trip planning to Direct Debit integration and live travel information.

Gumball3000

Gumball3000 is famous for turning 3,000 miles of public roads into an international rally course every year. A unique brand, with image at the heart, Gumball3000 needed a website that sold their merchandise whilst still providing the full Gumball lifestyle experience to their fans.

We took their aspirational brand and apparel and integrated it with music, pop culture and lifestyle features. We produced a grid-inspired article and eCommerce store experience, juxtaposing visual content and features with Gumball3000 apparel.

This content-driven, single page browsing experience is fully responsive, but more importantly, flexible enough to be updated on the road during the hectic week that is the famous Gumball3000 rally.

BaxterStorey

BaxterStorey are a leading independent provider of workplace restaurants, delis and coffee bars. With many prestigious clients including Aston Martin, Tottenham Hotspur FC and RBS, it’s vital that their web presence reflects their passion for quality.

BaxterStorey focus on high quality fresh ingredients from local suppliers, so imagery was a very important factor. We produced a unique and creative website using the latest web technologies. The polish comes in the form of numerous interactions throughout the site - creating interesting features to keep the user engaged with the BaxterStorey brand.
