Developing a unique integrated app for a bespoke ecommerce user experience
Streck Clothing – a young London-based, fashion start-up – needed to establish its brand online, and increase sales of its unique, customised hoodies. Demand for the vinyl-printed clothing was increasing, but they had no way to efficiently manage their order process.
We worked with the founder of the company to re-evaluate the entire sales journey from the customer’s first interaction with the brand, to the creation and delivery of the final, bespoke garment. Using the Shopify ecommerce platform so that product inventory and fulfilment could be easily managed by the client, we designed an interface that showcased the brand and developed an integrated app that enabled the user – like Nike-ID – to customise their own hoody design. This significantly streamlined the order process, and firmly established the brand online.
Following the success of the original development, we are now once again working with the founder to design and develop two extensions to her range, Streck It Kids and Streck It Dogs, both with a custom built cusotmiser.
SMA had recently repositioned their brand and needed communications to reflect this. Futureproof was asked to work across digital and direct mail, updating touch points accordingly. The overall goal was to place SMA as the go-to brand for support, advice, and ultimately their infant formulas.
Futureproof completed a proprietary strategy process to translate the new brand positioning into a thorough strategy that could be applied across all media. For the direct mail, we designed a traditional welcome pack, and an innovative bottle-shaped piece to promote SMA’s NPD.
We conducted a thorough review of the website and proposed improvements to the look and feel, and content structure. As part of this process, we held a photoshoot with parents and babies, and ran user testing, to create an optimal and logical user journey with imagery that reflected SMA’s new positioning and better engaged with mothers.

Orchard Pig was looking for marketing and communications expertise to help realise their ambitious growth plans. They needed an agency that could grow their consumer and customer base through excellent communications, delivering short-term objectives and long-term growth.
Futureproof developed a strategic approach that informed a full year plan across the on and off-trade. By building on consumer insight and brand truths, we demonstrated our ability to develop the brand from day one.
Recognising the community spirit of the Great British Publican
Futureproof was tasked by Enterprise – the UK’s largest leased and tenanted pub company – with creating, developing and delivering an initiative to recognise the great work their Publicans undertake within local communities.
There was a need to drive positive PR, Publican engagement and industry recognition following a series of pub closures and the ongoing decline of the pub trade.
We launched ‘The Community Hero Awards’ to recognise Publicans who make a real difference to the communities they serve. A dedicated website was created that allows Publicans to use their Enterprise login details to gain access and enter the awards.
The campaign has been supported through PR, eRM’s, internal engagement of Enterprise employees and a YouTube video that gives a complete overview of the awards.
Launched in 2012, the inaugural awards ceremony saw 18 regional winners being given £5000 to spend on a community initiative of their choice, with one national winner being awarded a further £5,000 to invest.
