Ki-Ki - Smiješna pustolovina

Entertainment

A fun mobile game for Kraš, celebrating its flagship candy product - Ki-Ki, based on classic Simple Simon concept with a twist.

The whole team was positively thrilled when Kraš approached us with the idea of introducing its famous candy to the new generation of kids (and adults) via a mobile game. A strong feeling of nostalgia and joy has been associated with this product for generations and we did our best to capture it in the game.

Having the target group preferences in mind, we decided on a Simple Simon memory mechanic, featuring an overworld and a story involving the lovely candy mascots (Ki-Ki clowns) trying to bring the laughter and happiness back to the world.

The game is free to play, completely ad free and available in the Google Play store.

sportske novosti

Entertainment

Rebranding the venerable sports daily.

The third part of the new digital media landscape for Hanza Media undertaken by Nivas is a redesign and rebranding of the oldest and most prominent sports themed daily newspaper, Sportske Novosti.

SN had its place on the internet even before, but only as a section of Jutarnji List portal. Nivas decided on a modern and much praised design direction, aiming to position Sportske Novosti as an independent portal for sports lovers. It worked, as the portal quickly rose into top 10 charts of Croatian web.

Gloria

Entertainment

Digital modernization of the renowned Croatian portal for modern girls (and guys).

Part two of the new digital media landscape for Hanza Media undertaken by Nivas, Gloria is the most successful and most read women's lifestyle magazin in Croatia.

The portal we created perfectly reflects class and style that the readers of the magazine came to expect. The clever use of whitespace and overlays serves to further emphasize this.

New marketing strategy of Gloria aims to widen the magazine's audience to male readers, and we took special care to help in this regard, with smart positioning of the male oriented content based on focus group user testing and post launch feedback.

Arenacamps

Tourism

Arenacamps is a sister site of Arenaturist focusing on camping and mobile homes offer in Istria.

Arenacamps was built on the solid foundation of the first portal we made for Arenaturist, but that doesn't mean it is just a carbon copy. Built and localized for a slightly different target group, Arenacamps underwent separate user testing process that gave us much needed insight into user behavior across all demographics and allowed us to fine tune all the details.

Both portals run on our proprietary VUDU, a robust and versatile content managing system, with PHOBS integration for instant booking, ensuring the maximum ease of use for administrators and users alike.

Jutarnji list

Entertainment

In 2010 we made a news portal that became the most viewed in Croatia. In 2016 we had a chance to do it again.

Jutarnji list, the flagship of Hanza Media, launched in 1998 and became digital in 2005, committed since the start to quickly adapt and incorporate the new trends. It was a major part of the reimagined digital landscape of Hanza Media publications done by Nivas. Wishing to push the envelope in a tough and competitive market such as net publishing, we set out to up the ante in every way.

In keeping with its paper form legacy, the chosen look is a stylish mix of traditional and contemporary, aiming for a clean, simplified approach to digesting daily news. Modular layout, able to present large amounts of content in an intelligent and manageable way, was tested by the users in a unique way. For 30 days, users had the chance to participate in finalizing the beta and watch the changes they made go live on a daily basis, providing invaluable feedback.

The portal is accessible from any device assuring a direct and easy contact with target groups of all ages. Sleek, fast, responsive and built with the user in mind, Jutarnji is a news portal for the modern reader.

Arenaturist

Tourism

Arenaturist approached us for the digital refreshing of their web presence. It was an offer we couldn't refuse.

New Arenaturist portal had to follow our tried and tested e-tourism best practices, be completely PHOBS (online booking engine) integrated, multilingual and accessible from a wide range of devices. The goal was to create a website that is functional,  aesthetically pleasing and user friendly.

We engaged in extensive user testing, focusing on existing and new user habits and user experience, to enhance the development process as well as the conversion rates. The result is a beautiful, modern website to match the beauty of Arenaturist destinations.

Tadawul

Financial - Tadawul

Tadawul, a Saudi Arabian Stock Exchange that lists 169 publicly traded companies needed a complete digital revamp .

After completing our previous work with the major telecommunications services provider - Mobily, Nivas was once again assigned for a large Saudi Arabian project. This time the customer was Tadawul (the Saudi Stock Exchange). The company asked for a major design overhaul of the website, focused on total responsiveness, clean and intuitive interface and inspired by the modern information design philosophies, along with digital strategy consulting and extensive user testing.

The major challenge was presenting the wealth of information in a structured and easy to use way, which we set to accomplish by going for the focused and clutter free interface that offers easy navigation without sacrificing content.

A strong blue and green color palette is a distinctive part of Tadawul branding, reflecting the core values of the kingdom itself - faith, growth and wisdom and perfectly embodying its vision - to become a global investment powerhouse and once again a gateway to the world.

Summer is here

Tourism - Hrvatska Turistička Zajednica

We are proud to present a small but very important landing page for Croatian tourist board. 

The case was simple; due to an unprecedented amount of stakeholders, the website (Summer is here) has remained more or less the same for the last 5-6 years. This would not be a problem if more and more visitors were not reaching it via mobile phones, tablets and other new age devices that require a fresh responsive approach.

As the summer is here and growing number of tourist are visiting the website to discover more about our country, its beauties and its offer, it became critical to present a responsive cross-country (and cross-target) optimised page that can inspire and drive interest around the globe for what is surely one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world. 

To put a new face on Croatia.hr we delivered a full responsive mini site, with responsive typography, responsive images, responsive loading, responsive cloud infrastructure optimized for high load and more.

The result is a light, immersive experience for one true home of Summer – Croatia.

Hoteli Baška

Tourism - Hoteli Baška

Baška is a picturesque town in Kvarner Gulf (Croatia) with a world famous stretch of beach where Hotels, Villas and Camps of Hoteli Baška are situated. 

Our task was to implement VUDU CMS framework with additional sales & content modules in order to fully optimize the workload and administration of multi-language/multi-offer website and the numerous requests it generates. Responsive layout ensures an optimised experience on any device and screen size, which resulted in a one month ROI generated by mobile direct bookings alone. The optimisation continues by tweaking booking & request funnels in order to fully maximize all visits. This effort is becoming increasingly important as visitor procurement is getting more costly (CPC, CPM) due to strong competition and the global growth of the tourism industry.

UNICEF - Čovječe, ispravi se!

Retail/FMCG - UNICEF

UNICEF survey conducted in 2014 has shown that one third of children of primary school age never heard of children's rights. 

Encouraged by the results of research, UNICEF decided to increase the level of awareness of children about their rights in a fun and educational way. The best opportunity for this was the 68th birthday of UNICEF and the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The UNICEF website released the first version of a computer game for children of primary school age entitled Čovječe, ispravi se. Primary target group are children aged from 6 to 14 years.

We decided to use SVG in combination with Javascript to derive the logic and animation of game. Game data is AJAX fetched from a server storing questions and answers. Special adjustment required all the information to be received visually. Special attention was paid to the availability of content to all users, including the blind and visually impaired users and users with motor impairments. We did this using ARIA attribute.

Game has been played 2,500 times, by 1,698 girls and 802 boys. Although the advertising budget for the game was 0, with the help of the ambassadors and UNICEF assistant, the game has made significant results. It certainly became part of the training materials intended for schools and libraries.

Villas Hvar

Tourism - Kabal tours d.o.o.

The island of Hvar, we believe, needs no special introduction – well known for beauty, sun, tourism, heritage such as well aged wine - and then some more sun.

Our client presented us with an exquisite collection of accommodation pearls, vibrant with traditional, yet luxurious Mediterranean feel, perfect for an unforgettable vacation. We conveyed this unique feeling on Villas Hvar web site by ommitting all the redundant content usually encountered on tourism sites as it tends to obscure the true meaning viewer should experience – the “wish you were here” moment. To emphasize this even more, we focused on visual richness of the site regardless of viewers device in hands since it is made in responsive technology powered by our VUDU platform to ensure the flawless backend flow. The result: beautiful, colorful and inviting web site – almost like Villas and the island of Hvar themselves. :)

That great deal also had great results: building stronger brand awareness, loyalty and online exposure with more than 11 000 unique players in only one month.

Frikom

Retail/FMCG - Frikom d.o.o.

To begin with, Frikom is one of the leaders in ice cream and frozen food production in the region tracing its origins back to 1970.

If it sounds somewhat familiar – no worries, we are not stealing our own copywriting – it is shared with our earlier Ledo project. Ledo and Frikom are both member companies of one major concern producing basically the same products with a distinct regional touch. The challenge was to make web site for Frikom that would communicate common corporate vision as Ledo project, but at the same time be regionally flexible and adjustable. We followed the same logic considering the span of product and user segments, but at the same time enabled regional focus with presentational aspects of the web site. Frikom inherited our VUDU framework from Ledo project as the logical foundation for making this “hardcode-flexibility” combination possible. We consider both sites combined twice as chilly. :)

SAFU

The Central Finance and Contracting Agency is a branch of Croatian Ministry of Finance.

CFCA is responsible for financing, procurement, payment and monitoring of the implementation of programmes and projects funded by the European Union.

Even though for us it seemed like a blink of an eye, more than 6 years have passed since the original CFCA site was launched, and the time has come to give it a little digital makeover.

CONCEPT

The core principles of usability and ease of navigation (a particularly tricky task, given the wealth of information the site contains), remain in the new version, while the user interface, design and layout follow new trends with a healthy dose of our unique approach and solutions.

DESIGN

Keeping in mind the wide and diverse audience of government bodies' web, we decided to keep a relatively simple color scheme and a neat grid layout. This went exceptionally well with crisp, almost old fashioned typography and our signature huge, brazen heading style, this time done in Museo with its flowing serifs.

Content management is handled by our proprietory Vudu CMS, for maximum flexibility and easy handling of content.
