WP Engine has released a global case study benchmarking the new website for The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCI).

 

DCCI commissioned WONDR to consolidate its wide variety of  separate websites into a unified content hub.

Powered by WP Engine, the project went beyond a digital facelift and ultimately resulted in a strategic overhaul of DCCI’s site, which enhanced user engagement, strengthened DCCI’s brand reputation, and positioned the Council as a champion of Irish design and craft on a global stage.

Thanks to WONDR, we now have an online presence that truly reflects the role that DCCI plays in raising awareness of the vibrancy of the craft and design sector in Ireland.

The new site for DCCI features ‘campaign mode‘,  a unique feature that enables the team to have more bespoke campaign sites within their main site for key programmes like Design Week & Future Makers.

 

 

DCCI’s digital transformation, led by WONDR in partnership with WP Engine, marked a significant milestone for the organization.

The project wasn’t only about creating a new website, but crafting a digital experience that mirrored the depth and richness of Irish design and crafts.

We have been given a platform which we, the team at DCCI, along with the designers and makers we represent can be proud of. Our new website is an engaging visual experience that successfully demonstrates the breadth of work we do throughout Ireland.

WONDR are proud to have collaborated with The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland to launch their new digital hub.

The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCI) embarked on a journey of transformation, emerging with a powerful new digital home that embodies the sheer quality of Irish design culture.

DCCI serves as the national agency for the commercial development of Irish designers and makers, stimulating innovation, championing design thinking and informing Government policy.

Who better to partner with on this digital redesign than WONDR, who have been recognised as the ‘best in Ireland’ and in the ‘Global top 10′ agencies two years running for their innovative digital designs.

This partnership aimed to streamline DCCI’s online presence and deliver a truly immersive user experience.

It was important for the digital platform to not only stimulate innovation and champion design thinking but also inform government policy, all while elevating Ireland’s rich culture of design and craft to global recognition.

The power of design was harnessed to strengthen DCCI’s digital identity, aligning WONDR’s expertise in designing innovative digital experiences and the DCCI’s commitment to fostering innovation, nurturing design thinking, and shining a global spotlight on the legacy of Irish design and craft.

WONDR introduced a unified visual language that now defines the DCCI brand online. Through strategic integration of images, videos, and editorial craftsmanship, the website has been transformed into an artistic canvas that showcases the brilliance of Irish crafts, in perfect harmony with DCCI’s vision.

Captivating narratives took centre stage, shedding light on DCCI’s ceaseless activities, advocacy, and educational initiatives, all while highlighting the accomplishments of DCCI’s talented members and makers.

DCCI’s enhanced online presence is now poised to effectively convey the depth of design and craftsmanship in Ireland, even to the highest echelons of government.

The website stands proudly on a foundation of flexible and accessible enterprise-ready technology, future-proofing DCCI for what’s to come.

This adaptable infrastructure allows DCCI to host activation and campaign websites for sub-brands like Design Week and Future Makers, all from a single system, saving time and reducing future costs.

We were proud to work with the DCCI Executive to support their strategic plan and transform their digital presence
