The favourite cheese snack among children in the UK and Ireland.
Cheestrings first approached us to help them create a new European hub for their existing euro-territory sites and one that could accommodate for the addition of new sites that would be launched ad-hoc in the coming months and years as the brand grew into new countries and territories.
We provided a WordPress solution that would allow for the addition of new territories with minimal overhead, whilst also allowing for granular control over each territory sub-site – giving each of them the flexibility they need to operate independently while continuing to keep in line with the larger brand. An important feature is the ability to easily manage multiple languages for each territory.
“An efficient and scalable solution for multi-lingual and multi-site management”
Using ongoing analytics and behaviour metrics, we have used and looped this information back into design and development to ensure the sites are always achieving the users’ & Cheestrings’ needs and goals.
Cheestrings have launched roughly 2 – 4 promotions and games per year, cross market and across different formats (always tying back into the website). We’ve factored this into the build and been an active partner throughout each one of these promotions. Whether its building full campaigns ground up, or collaborating with 3rd parties such as Universal Music, Nickleodeon and Sony Pictures, we’ve helped ensure successful launches of each of these across multiple territories.
One of the most recent – the Music Maker – which tied in with a free song download with Universal Music and TV campaign – pushed the boundaries of what can be done in the browser. Using the latest HTML 5 audio technologies, we created an interactive game where children can create a song within their browser, by toggling different sounds and patterns for different parts of song. The game can be played on all modern desktop browsers and tablets. Children can record their songs and play back their creations to friends and family.
