GrandWorks • January 1, 2019
This year has been a crazy year, full of adventures, challenges, and fun projects to finish! We started out as two people working from a co-working space to a team of five working out of our own Portuguese villa with a small garden. We couldn’t be happier, this year was definitely a grand first year for GrandWorks!
We really want to thank our awesome clients for putting their trust in us. Here are some of the projects we’ve completed this year.
UpCloud is one of the leading cloud hosting solutions, delivering the fastest cloud servers. We’ve been working with UpCloud before on Illustrations, but this time we got the task of creating their new website from scratch. We worked through their all-new design language and introduced brand new community section. It was a huge project which involved our whole team, from design, and front-end development, to back-end development. We’re very happy with how the website turned out. It was a great journey, the team at UpCloud is great, we couldn’t be more happy to be working with them!
Another fun project we are super proud of this year is definitely DigitalSky, the official portal for drones in India, launched together with India’s new policy for drones. For this project, we designed the whole user interface and developed the front-end part of the website. We also built DigitalSky with mobile first in mind, making it more similar to an app, but still completely made for desktop as well, without the need to actually download an app.
OnePlus released two new smartphones this year, 6, and 6T which brought record sales to the company and positioning them as leader of the premium smartphone market in India and broadening their horizons to other parts of the world. Our founder Hampus Olsson created all the official wallpapers for the new phones, together with UI illustrations and icons for OxygenOS, OnePlus´s version of Android.
We designed the graphical profile and brand identity of Ekspono, a Swedish business creating a digital platform specialized to reap the full benefits of QIS index investing. We helped them with the logotype, website, business cards, graphical profile, and presentations.
Happy Cities Summit
We created and managed the website for Happy Cities Summit of Amaravati together with Andhra Pradesh Government of India for 2018. Right now we’re currently working on the 2019 edition. The event for 2018 was a huge success, seeing the participation from 1,500+ delegates from 15+ countries, including eminent city leaders and urban experts.
We launched the official website for iSPIRT, which is a non-profit organization in India, promoting policies, technology platforms and playbooks for product entrepreneurs in India. iSPIRT creates great products and solutions directly for the Indian Government and are handling IndiaStack and more.
We’re incredibly excited to see what 2019 will bring, and hope to do even better this year! We also want to thank everyone who has supported us this year, we really love you and can’t thank you enough! <3
Happy new year!
