Business development is a passion of ours, and in order for a business to be successful, then a holistic view of each and every element of the process must be considered. We take the same approach to creative development, as we believe that design, development, usability, efficiency, sales, marketing, customer service and strategic planning all come together to form a powerful set of products, services or offerings that make you stand apart.
Our skills in each these areas allow us to produce better creative products which ultimately address the business needs that have been recovered from client meetings and our own unique brainstorming processes.
Hearing our clients say that our products “just work”, for us, is the ultimate compliment, because it means that the creative elements of the project do not detract and only strengthen the message being conveyed.
Time and time again, our clients have asked us to use these skill-sets and this holistic approach to not only develop creative products, but to advise them in strategic planning, business development and online marketing.
Why not give us a call and find out whether we could work together?
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
There is no denying it… we love the ‘Net, the breakneck pace, and the constantly changing technology that goes with it.
We see tremendous opportunities online for almost everyone, and those that shy away from the inevitable digital revolution that has been ongoing for decades will be simply left behind.
However our passion is for creating online applications and websites that are both beautiful to look at but also incredibly easy and intuitive to use. By building using modern open-source software frameworks, along with the research and development of new and emerging technologies, we are able to offer our clients high quality, usable and effective online tools.
We have invested heavily in careful software development to create products and systems that are abstracted from the constraints of normal proprietary based development, meaning that our clients benefit from new technology and functionality without the dangers of dependency.
We offer a wide range of online products from bespoke website design and development, web based application development, mobile app creation, and ultra flexible, cloud based business management systems.
Growing a business, or finding a solution to an outstanding problem is a familiar problem for every organisation, and modern technology has been harnessed for many years to help out.
Our extensive knowledge of the industry, and our skills in business development have seen Handbuilt frequently engaged in a Strategic Planning role to offer the best advice in how to progress towards end goals using technology and traditional media.
Starting with detailed business discussions, we assess the current position of your organisation, and then work together to set out realistic and effective goals. Research and development into existing and emerging systems and technologies allow us to then advise the best possible solution to meet the assigned goals. Regular meetings, transparent processes and effective feedback are all used to ensure a high quality result.
Consultancy is often viewed as a woolly industry, with consultants smiling sweetly, dishing out advice whilst you sweat out how much the idle chat is going to cost you.
We hate this too, so our approach is one of strict business efficiency where our services are engaged on an hour by hour basis, with optional deliverables being completed only after agreed fees and timescales. This means that you are in control of the amount of consultancy we give, rather than the other way round.
Whereas we are always friendly and polite, we do see our consultancy commitments as being of the utmost importance to your business, where time is valuable, so you can guarantee blunt interpretation and feedback. Indeed it is this frank and honest appraisal of our clients organisation that has seen our services be recommended by them to other business contacts.
Naturally our consultancy services are arranged on a case by case basis, and we are more than happy to arrange a free initial consultation to see whether we will be a good fit for each other, and whether you feel that you can gain any benefit from our skill-set and experience.
Another passion close to our hearts, graphic design is still the cornerstone of most creative endeavors. We see simplicity as the key as time is precious in today’s society. A creative element only has a fraction of a second to gain a foothold in a viewer consciousness, and therefore it needs to communicate it’s message instantly.
We spend large chunks of the concept design process brainstorming ideas, questioning the role of the element being created and distilling the essence of it’s message. It is this attention to detail and commitment to finding the core values of each project, that allows us to then apply the business needs of the project to the design so concisely.
When the combination of effective planning, illustration of the core message, and high quality execution come together, the result is a creative element which conveys it’s message with clarity and impact.
So whether it’s an icon for video surveillance software, the creation of an annual report, or branding for a Government department, our consistent and considered approach ensures that the results speak for themselves.
Handbuilt specialize in producing unusual exhibitions which aim to showcase the material in a powerful but subtle way, and make our clients work remarkable.
We have experience designing and developing innovative displays of mixed media, and our keen sense of creativity finds us constantly researching and sourcing new materials to use as part of the display process. Rather than use off-the-shelf display stands, we explore materials such as perspex to achieve dramatic back-lit environments such as this exhibition that Handbuilt created for the Tasmanian Government’s $500m Parliament Square re-development project.
