Helping Kiwi communities recover from Cyclone Gabrielle
Partnering with Clemenger BBDO, Westpac and Windcave, we were tasked with designing and developing a website using Silverstripe CMS and Silverstripe Cloud that allowed Kiwis to donate.
No one knows our technology better than we do, so we delivered an initial summary of the build and requirements, along with wireframes, to DIA to ensure clarity over the project. Once validated, the requirements and wireframes enabled us to progress to visual design concepts, image procurement and tech stack setup to set the foundation for the road ahead. We then produced a full design, imagery procurement, and built the technology stacks, coding and integrated payment capability with Windcave.
We utilised the appropriate tools and communication channels that were critical to suit the multi-partner project and were able to stand up a dedicated rapid response team to meet this unprecedented timeframe.
Delivering at pace
This was an incredibly important project for New Zealanders that needed to be stood up reliably and quickly. As an Aotearoa-owned and operated business, we were committed to our promised project scope to ensure it was successful.
With a strong focus on communication, we worked with multiple project partners to develop straight into the production website, by ensuring an IP restricted whitelist to manage who could access the site while it was being developed.
To deliver this project, Silverstripe took on the roles of designers, content authors, development partners and creators and with a launch time of 4pm, we were able to remove the whitelist and have the website ready to go public at 3.45pm.
