The collaboration with Willab Garden

Buying a greenhouse or conservatory is a big commitment. It starts with a dream of cultivating and spending time outdoors, then follows a customer journey that is often both physical and digital. An important task is to hold the customer's hand throughout the journey, from the first touchpoint to the purchase. Therefore, we designed a shopping experience that is simple and fast, but also guiding and inspiring. Fewer clicks to buy, but also better integration between guides, e-commerce and inspiration. The brand was reviewed and we developed a new graphic profile, tonality, guidelines and inspiration, which works for all channels - not just digital.

A fast, efficient and easy-to-use e-commerce solution, with inspiration and sales in focus for both customers and editors as well as a transformation to a more customer-centric approach.

About the Swedish Design Awards

The purpose of the competition is to promote and develop Swedish design and communication. The winners in the various categories are chosen through jury judging and votes from the Swedish people. The Swedish Design Prize is 50% of the jury's votes and 50% of the people's votes. A unique collaboration to design and develop Swedish design every year. The award was established during the Design Year 2005 and was arranged this year by Batteri.
