What We Do Creative, Technology & Strategy
Wild Dog is made up of an exotic mix of designers, front and back-end developers, information architecture (IA) specialists and strategists.
In simple terms, there are three core tenets of the agency: Creative, Technology and Strategy. The 'what' does it look like, the 'how' will it work and the 'why' is this the correct approach. The reality is that they are not independent of each other, but totally interdependent and thereby we can offer our client's the most robust and dynamic creative development process.
In practical application terms, this means we design and develop for digital, whether that’s websites, sophisticated back-end data engineering work, API through to PWA devs and all the while embracing emerging technologies to make our client's offering first-class. We design for print; from brochures through to direct mail. We’re brand designers; whether you need to define your brand’s overall strategy, brand strategy workshops through to producing assets such as ID marques, brand guidelines, tone of voice and competitive positioning.
We’ve been doing it since 1996. We think we’re pretty good.
The creative process of true design at Wild Dog does not start and end simply with the look and feel of a project; rather it runs through everything that we do. From concept and UX all the way through to back end devs and final delivery. It can cross over from digital to analogue, from still to the animated, from heart to head, from that which can be seen to that which intrinsically must remain unseen. Naturally the end look and feel often defines the design of the final application, but our client's take comfort knowing that so much more runs through what their clients finally see, touch, use and experience.
