Strong sub brands and a seamless customer journey

TBL initially brought DeType on board in 2014 to design web applications and printed / digital marketing materials, however, the creative partnership quickly evolved into something much bigger.

‘PropTech’ was becoming a new buzz word, and TBL was able to use that as an opportunity to position themselves as leaders in the sector.

The customer journey was hugely important as a way of leveraging market share too, but the complexity of the business spanning four companies in the UK and India, along with its multiple software products, meant that the user experience had become a little confused.

DeType proactively suggested exploring different UX design options which would give every element of the business a recognisable, powerful identity, whilst complementing the overall look and feel and smoothing out any culture differences in the UK and India.

It was, and still is, a continually developing process

The DeType team recognise how art can be used for a business purpose, and how design can impact, motivate and inspire the customer journey. They get deep into the client space on a strategic level, and have an exceptional grasp of our customer proposition so that we are constantly evolving.

DeType’s creative solutions over the years have included significant rebranding, UX design, web design, web development, social media and digital communications.

Working on a retainer basis has allowed DeType to be fully responsive to all of TBL’s needs and – after a complex process to understand the customer touchpoints, involving meetings with key staff members and existing clients and stakeholders – TBL now has four high-ranking companies in the PropTech industry, and seven identifiable sub brands.

Adam explained:

“DeType soon became immersed in our culture and processes, so they were able to spot inefficiencies in the customer journey in the UK and India. They brought a refreshingly strategic approach to design.

“Even though we were predominantly print based, DeType was very clear that it wasn’t just a case of revamping our documentation. They were constantly thinking about all our assets and the bigger picture, who we communicate with, and how our customers experience our various brands through the web systems and apps.

Their knowledge of multi-brand companies like ours and their faultless approach is what makes them stand out.
