Building a holistic home for Australia’s favourite supplements brand

Bio Island is one of Australia’s leading manufacturers of nutritional supplements and a major supporter of Swimming Australia. They have an international customer base extending to China.

Part of their strategic evolution as a brand was to become more holistically-focussed. They planned to position themselves as a health resource, providing nutritional advice to families. This brand evolution saw them redesign their packaging, and so an overhaul of the website was planned in alignment with this.

Working through the design and build process with Deepend exceeded my expectations. We worked smoothly and iteratively, fusing both the BioIsland and Deepend teams into one, high functioning unit

Given the international nature of their audience, a fine balance had to be struck in both the design and the tone of the site. This was important to ensure that it catered and appealed to a wide variety of users from around the globe. This extended to broadening its content strategy too, with allowances made for this to grow exponentially over the coming year.

Drawing from Experience

Design inspiration was pulled from a wide variety of sources – from wellness blogs, pharmaceutical brands that were pursuing more holistic content strategies.
This allowed us to build out a mood board and content roadmap based on successful tactics that others had pursued previously.

Interactive Design

Simple but effective interactive elements were implemented to hero the products and to make for a more engaging experience.
