Made by Many case studies

A new digital direction for the leading museum of art and design

The V&A has undergone a digital transformation in the last six months: it has a new digital brand, a remodeled web platform, a data model built (like the physical museum) around the museum artefact, a superb editing tool that any of the museum’s staff will be able to use with virtually no training, and a retrained and expanded digital product team. Made by Many drove the changes.

V&A website

Our journey with Made by Many has been utterly inspiring: they get product, they get business innovation, and together we've built a new website that has been brilliantly received by our online audience. And we've learnt a huge amount along the way.

A marketing website that works like a product

Websites that market are no longer static brochures. To be successful, they need to be data-driven and as dynamic as their visitors. Showtime deeply understood this, and in partnering with Made by Many, redesigned their site and developed a design system and new collaborative working style that enables them to learn from real world use patterns and rapidly iterate.

Sho.com

With the Made by Many team embedded on site for much of the project, our collaboration allowed for rapid iterations, real time problem solving, and an eye towards knowledge transfer between client and agency. This winning partnership left us with a transformative site design and an enlightened process for our company’s future efforts.

A new digital platform for a world-leading NGO

With over a million visitors every month, the World Economic Forum needed a digital platform fit for its diverse global audience. We delivered a high-performance responsive website and a powerful bespoke CMS in the run-up to its Annual Meeting in Davos.

The Forum

We gave Made by Many an almost impossible task with frequently shifting requirements and hugely demanding timelines, but they delivered. The new web platform they designed and built performed brilliantly during the peak traffic of Davos, and unlocked really significant workflow, productivity and user experience gains.

A next-generation flight booking engine

We prototyped and designed a new platform to help Finnair balance two seemingly contradictory objectives: to improve the integration of ancillary purchases into the booking journey and increase revenues, while at the same time transforming the customer experience into something that people genuinely love to use.

Our approach joined insight from 100+ qualitative research sessions with Finnair’s commercial strategy to create a very different kind of booking experience. It will launch to the public in the summer of 2016.

Creating a best in class infrastructure for one of the sharing economy's hottest start ups

We helped the 2014 TechCrunch Disrupt winners turn their multi-faceted concierge business into an API-driven service platform. Together we made their vision tangible in a rapid 100-day product development burst, resulting in three applications and the foundations to effectively grow their business following a successful $10.5M Series A raise.

Hello Alfred

We wanted a partner who understood our product and vision - not just an agency or someone to outsource work to. After interviewing many firms we found this partner in Made by Many. What we didn't expect is that they would become more than a partner. They became a part of our team.

Digital service design for group travel

We helped Buster rethink their assumptions about how people book group transportation, ultimately redesigning their online booking tool to reflect those learnings. The result was a new paradigm in the industry, replacing inefficient offline price lists and phone calls with an intuitive digital experience.

Book a ride or plan a trip with Buster

Made by Many went further than collaboration, they folded right into our team and taught us valuable new approaches as they led us through their process. Working with them didn’t just change our product it permanently changed our perspective.

Connecting classrooms in 230 countries

We launched Skype in the classroom in 2010 as a simple directory of pioneering teachers who were using Skype in ways the brand had never imagined. We’ve grown it into a platform of services that delivers a unique set of ‘live’ learning experiences to millions of kids and connects classrooms worldwide.

Visit Skype in the classroom

Made by Many took us on a magical journey, inspired by the way teachers were hacking Skype to connect their classrooms. Together we grew it into an everyday learning tool that’s become a million times more successful than we could possibly have imagined, and became the ultimate manifestation of Skype’s soul.

The UK’s fastest breaking news service

We turned ITV News into the fastest breaking-news service in the UK, increasing traffic by a whopping 2000%. It was a huge and challenging task that involved a holistic rethinking of the ITV news service as well as redesigning journalists’ workflow.

Made by Many taught us to focus ruthlessly on what matters and on the area in which we could have most impact. It was the most fun and rewarding experience I have had in digital media.

Sparking a digital revolution in luxury

Burberry’s brief to Made by Many in 2009 was simple: ‘do something spectacular with social’. 16 weeks later we launched the luxury sector’s first truly native digital experience, Art of the Trench. By any and all metrics it was exceptionally successful: engaging a new generation of consumers, growing e-commerce sales by 50% and increasing sales of trenchcoats worldwide by 85% YoY.


Designing the future of self-organised learning

We worked with TED, Microsoft/Skype and IDEO to bring Professor Sugata Mitra’s TED Prize wish to life. We launched School in the Cloud at TED 2014, and the service beams thousands of ‘Skype Grannies’ into Learning Labs in developing countries, as well as supporting parents and teachers in developed countries to create their own Self Organised Learning Environments.

Made by Many's holistic approach to design laid the groundwork for a site that felt inherently sustainable and a true collaboration of all involved.

Collaborative tools that lifted sales 120%

Contagious Feed had delivered peerless insight to marketing professionals for years, but the service aged badly and subscriptions slowed. We helped reinvent it from passive repository to purposeful toolset, empowering marketing teams with features worthy of the premium price point. Subscriptions are up 120%.

Made by Many’s ability to look at both the business and the service strategically was truly inspiring. It enabled us to create a service now indispensable amongst brands and agencies across the globe. We could not be more delighted.

Co-creating content with a lost generation

To help Belgian broadcaster VRT to re-engage with the ‘YouTube Generation’, we collectively set up an incubator for experimenting directly with consumers. Platforms like sambal.be and ninjanieuws have been co-created with young people and scaled once proven successful.
