The Challenge

Three-Eyed Smiley, a small studio known for its exceptional work in commercial video post-production, faced a significant challenge as it began to gain recognition in its industry. The team realized the importance of establishing touchpoints for their customers' journey to conversion, with the website being the primary and most crucial element. Despite their growing reputation, the absence of a website became a stumbling block for new leads seeking information online.

Recognizing this, Three-Eyed Smiley set out to create a digital platform that would not only serve as an informative resource for their work but also embody the unique spirit and creativity of their brand. The challenge was to design and develop a website from the ground up, ensuring it effectively showcased their portfolio and services while making it easy for visitors to navigate and engage.

Our Approach

Discovery & Design

During the Discovery & Design phase, a key objective was to effectively display Three-Eyed Smiley's extensive portfolio of video projects. It was crucial to organize these videos in client-specific groups to highlight the studio's ability to retain clients over time, showcasing the trust and satisfaction that led to repeat collaborations.

Equally important was the need to feature detailed case studies that would walk visitors through the studio's creative process, from concept to completion. Achieving the right aesthetic was critical; the website needed to reflect Three-Eyed Smiley's unique "grunge" brand identity. This meant steering clear of a traditional corporate look and instead embracing a design that resonated with their love for action figures, skateboards, and comic books. The challenge was to blend professionalism with the studio's rebellious spirit, creating a website that was not only informative and easy to navigate but also authentically represented their brand's essence.

Custom Development & SEO

The primary goal was to balance the visual richness of showcasing numerous videos with maintaining a sleek, user-friendly interface and optimal website performance. The challenge lay in designing a platform that could handle a substantial video portfolio without overwhelming the servers or the users' visual experience. A key part of this strategy involved integrating a Content Management System (CMS) that was straightforward for the client to update with new cases and content, ensuring the site remains fresh and relevant.

Expertise in Webflow was crucial to meet these demands, requiring the implementation of lightweight custom coding to avoid bogging down the site's speed and performance. This approach ensured that the website looked good and aligned with Three-Eyed Smiley's "grunge" brand aesthetic, offering a seamless experience for visitors. The SEO strategy was woven into the development process from the start, optimizing the site to rank well in search engines while keeping it easy to navigate and engaging for users.

Working with Julio and the Dancing Pels team has been great! This was my company's first website, and there was a gap in my knowledge regarding web design. Julio patiently explained to me exactly what we needed, why we needed it, and how to operate it once everything was completed. The team went over and beyond to help me resolve a few issues that we ran into. I would highly recommend this company.
