Manchester's Lo + Behold launches two new websites


Digital Agency Lo + Behold have launched websites for two of their clients: Vernon Building Society and Diversity Travel, both based in the North-West.

Their team have worked with Vernon Building Society for over 10 years in their previous guise as Evolutia, the latest project being a fully-responsive website to serve The Vernon's customer-base within the Stockport area, as well as driving new business. The new website is content-managed which allows for instant changes where financial compliance requires, with potential for unlimited growth as their product offering expands.

The Vernon’s Marketing Coordinator, Nathaniel Harwood said of the project, “We’re very happy with the new site. Feedback from our members has been positive and Lo & Behold have continued to support us in ambitions to improve the user experience. They are creative and responsive to our needs. As a web design agency, I would not hesitate to recommend them”.

The Diversity Travel website marks the start of a new relationship between the pair, developing a presence to stimulate business development in the Academic, Charitable and Corporate sectors. Diversity Travel have a strong reputation as an emergent Travel Management Company, something Lo + Behold were keen to further with the project. An emphasis on User-Experience has resulted in a simple, intuitive site which belies the breadth of content therein, with attention also given to developing their existing Brand Identity to align it with evolving market conditions and customer tastes. The partnership has also spawned a mobile app for use by travellers worldwide.

Both projects have called upon Lo + Behold’s core areas of expertise, including Brand Development, User Experience Design and Web and App design and implementation.

Lo + Behold’s MD, David Bowers said, “We love working with ambitious companies that fully appreciate the business value of great design. Both projects gave us a chance to hone in on the fine details of the User-Experience to demonstrate that corporate websites needn’t be drab or dreary — we had a lot of fun with both and I hope it shows.”

The agency is now looking to expand its operation by taking on a Senior Developer with extensive front-end experience to aid with their push into more experiential, brand-building online experiences.

Last month also saw the agency become listed on the Recommended Agencies Register.
