a personal symbol
For a more powerful promotion, we created a brand around Filip Filipovic’s name. We came up with few concepts, since FiIip’s signature was already famous we decided to use his signature by adding small amounts of stylization.

Since we love collaborating with clients, we worked together with Filip to define, test, and design the new experience. We spotted the weak points of the old website: namely that the website was not mobile-friendly, the information structure was weak and the design was out of date.
We set the information architecture and rethought the experience. Since the main purpose of this site was Filip’s promotion and fan interaction, the layout is adjusted to the fan’s needs, we came up with the solution with an interactive slider that will navigate users to the main categories of their interest which are the facts about Filip’s Career, Image and Video galleries, Sports news, Fans Corner.
With Filip’s fans in focus, we had to redesign the new assets to be more exciting, more interactive – they needed more photos, video, more visuals. We archived a balance of aesthetics and function.
We developed a custom-designed interactive theme on the WordPress platform.
Filip’s biography is rich with many successes. It was very important to depict his entire career chronologically by highlighting the most important achievements in his career.
We chose animated graphs to highlight Filip’s impressive accomplishments.
Filip’s career being very impressive, we wanted to show some aspects of it using as many statistics as possible.
The greater part of Filip’s work is well documented, but also the news that you can find out first hand, directly from Filip, is on his site.
One of Filip’s requests was to promote his team’s merchandise, but without adding an actual shop. So we extracted products from his team’s website’s API, and listed them on Filip’s website.
To make a photo campaign aligned with Filip’s identity, we decided the photoshoot should take the place at the swimming pool where Filip started his career and where he became most popular. The idea was to take photos that will highlight his dedication to pushing his own limits, his focus, and motivation.
By maintaining the same look and feel of the website using a responsive design, we were able to offer fans content that they could easily access and comfortably navigate from any device.
Most fans want to know the private details of their hero. One of the ways to get closer to your hero is through the image gallery that contains photos of the private life of this great athlete. Linking his Instagram profile to one of the galleries may have been the most effective way to get closer to him.
