What are success triggers?
We have been hammering away at designing our website for 9 months. A team of 8 people was working literally day and night to create this cool and, at the same time, high-performing site.
Honestly, it’s the 10th version of our website. The agency has been continuously evolving, and, thus, we had to iterate a lot, come up with unprecedented solutions, and design new pages to convey the essence of what we do here.
For example, we recently designed the Process page to interactively show the steps we follow while designing an MVP or redesigning. Then, we crafted the About us page to show who we are in real life. The page hosts Batumba - a real statue in our office in Kyiv, the embodiment of the agency’s team spirit.
Overall, we united smooth animations, interesting 3Ds, and eye-catching visuals on a crystal-clear and simple interface structure, making our website accessible and super convenient. The website is not overloaded with nauseous effects, yet it’s trendy, professional, and high-performing.
We cannot thank our True Believers enough for voting for us, as well as all the team behind this win!
Lazarev family says thank you to:
- The Ukrainian community for supporting us and casting every vote. Especially during these challenging times for Ukraine.
- All the team for devoted work, sleepless nights, and true passion for moving forward.
- Our clients for trusting us their most important initiatives and giving us opportunities to grow.
This is only the beginning. We have a long road ahead of us, but let this win be a reminder that we’re creating something special.
