OVERVIEW

A true option for the ‘conscious carnivore’, this system of farming harvests animals considered pests, thus Discovered Wildfoods opens up the availability of high protein, low fat wild game to a wider group of Australians, while protecting native habitats, as well as supporting rural communities.

Having recently undergone a rebrand, Discovered Wildfoods were ready to share this story to a wider audience and needed a website as impressive as their mission - to make positive change for our health, our communities and our planet.

Our phased delivery approach ensured we were able to deliver all the functionality Discovered required, including eCommerce, while respecting budgets and adhering to tight timings.

CHALLENGE
A lean budget for this lean protein.

The site needed to be as streamlined and simple as the storytelling needs to be in order to capture a new audience and broaden the appeal of wild foods in Australia. Three core audiences - chefs, consumers and commercial partners - all needed to be taken on the journey. We also needed to build eCommerce functionality on the site so that curious (and hungry) Australians could try these leans cuts for themselves.

SOLUTION

An image-rich showcase site with subtle animations and transitions to highlight the brand’s

premium, rich, and earthy style. The hand-drawn elements of the brand nod to American design history and animations complement the handcrafted feel of the brand. The design system leans on the verdant colour palette and is layered to be quite textural. The brand always feels authentic and the animation of the illustrations help to achieve this.

E-commerce was always the end goal for the site, so it was a focus in our upfront UX and design phases. The budget only allowed for a finite number of features. To make e-commerce achievable for Discovered, we delivered the cart functionality post-launch as part of a secondary sprint once they had earned some ROI.
