Halberg Trust )

<p class="leader">After 50 years of supporting and promoting young disabled sportspeople across New Zealand, the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation re-evaluated its brand, strategy and operational structure over 2011/2012. </p> <p><strong>The result?</strong> A renewed online presence with three new websites for each of the Foundation’s core areas of work, all undertaken by NV Interactive in one of our most rewarding projects of the year.</p> <h3>Teaming up with the Halberg Foundation</h3> <p>Our on-going partnership with the Halberg Disability Sport Foundation (previously known as the Halberg Trust) has resulted in NV Interactive creating a suite of three websites that engage and connect with users: </p> <div data-colgroup="true"> <div data-colspan="4"> <a href="http://www.halbergawards.co.nz/" target="blank"><img src="/design.resources/img/case-studies/allsports/collection1.jpg" class="screenshot" /></a> </div> <div data-colspan="4"> <a href="http://www.allsportsnz.co.nz/" target="blank"><img src="/design.resources/img/case-studies/allsports/collection2.jpg" class="screenshot" /></a> </div> <div data-colspan="4"> <a href="http://www.halberg.co.nz" target="blank"><img src="/design.resources/img/case-studies/allsports/collection3.jpg" class="screenshot" /></a> </div> </div> <p>Each of the websites meet a specific purpose; promoting the Westpac Halberg Sports Awards, raising awareness of AllSports and connecting young people with the most appropriate sports club and grants, and ensuring the Halberg Foundation’s website is the glue for the different branches of the organisation. </p> <p><strong>NV’s work involved</strong> a particular focus on AllSports, the Halberg grassroots organisation that enhances the lives of physically disabled young people by enabling them to participate in sport by connecting them with local sports clubs. </p>

The Project Office )

<p class="leader">The Project Office are a boutique project management company based in Christchurch who focus on construction and infrastructure projects. Their brief to us to was to showcase the scale of their projects, but also to present their team and approach to business.</p> <p>We created a new digital identity for the company that they have since rolled into their other marketing collateral. Online, we commissioned strong, architectural photography to showcase The Project Office's work and used a simple, structured layout to lead visitors through the content. </p>

Lone Star )

<p class="leader">Instead of a formal brief, the Lone Star restaurant chain came to us with a fistful of dining vouchers. "Go experience our restaurants and then come back with your ideas," they said.</p>

Baker Boys )

<p class="leader">Baker Boys is borne from a family business, so behind the aprons you'll find a caring team of folk who put their heart and soul into crafting delicious, beautifully baked goods. Their new site needed to present the high quality and family owned feel to the local market but also show how the company's refined processes give them the capacity to tackle a wider international market. </p><p> We created a lusciously image-rich site that displays the craft and volume of the business visually and is backed up by detailed information about their products, facilities and philosophies.</p>

Share an Idea )

<p class="leader">Following the devastating earthquakes, the Christchurch City Council needed to rebuild their broken city. And they only had two months to undertake a complex public consultation that under normal circumstances would take years. </p> <p>We turned the process on its head and created an approachable, engaging online crowd sourcing tool that delivered outstanding results. This breakthrough digital campaign has achieved global recognition for its ingenuity and effectiveness. </p>

New Zealand Sugar )

<p class="leader">Engagement, it's the new metric. And it's what digital does better than anyone.

New Zealand Cricket Windows 8 App )

<p class="leader">NV Interactive are one of the very first developers in the world to launch a Windows 8 app. The new app, for long standing NV client New Zealand Cricket, is being held up internationally as an outstanding example of what is possible in this exciting new platform.</p> <p>Windows 8 is a game-changing new operating system from Microsoft, built around the concept of apps and utilises a new Windows 8 design language, previously known as the ‘Metro design language’. The new platform is driven by standard technologies like HTML5 and JavaScript so we are able to bring our award winning web skills to bear, making it the perfect platform for us to extend our clients’ brands and customer engagement even further.</p> <p>With the New Zealand Cricket Windows 8 app, we didn't want to simple re-create the New Zealand Cricket website. That would have been too easy - we wanted to really make the most of the what Windows 8 could do. So we simplified, and distilled the content down by thinking about how fans would use it. The result is strongly visual app that delivers information broken down by tour, leads users to statistics, live updates and links to current articles on the website.</p> <p>And we did all this without NZ Cricket having to change their existing publishing systems. This is the real power of the solution.</p>

It is one of the largest building groups in New Zealand and has achieved numerous accolades for the quality of its workmanship, including winning more Registered Master Builder gold awards in recent years than any other national building group. </p><p> The quality and application that goes into building their homes needed to be reflected in the delivery of their website.

These key elements were used throughout our design process to make sure we were hitting the same marks and goals in their website as David Reid Homes does in their business.</p>

This comes from a number of sources including the yellow bin kerbside collection, EcoDrops and commercial deliveries. This glass is extracted as part of the EcoSort separation process and used to produce the range of EcoCrystal products. </p> <p>The key role in the website was showing the wide range of uses that this product has and enabling uses to access more detail about its use and create pathways to additional content or to be able to purchase the product.</p>
