Process

Web Design

Re-creating the UBELONG website was very much a process of re-creating the UBELONG brand as a whole. An entirely new visual system was created, including color coding, custom iconography, photo styling, and a web style guide that truly evolved the brand. Through much collaboration with the client, we struck that ever-important balance between clean/contemporary, and warm and friendly.

Responsive Design

The UBELONG site is designed to resize naturally through any screen-size. Pollen made no sacrifices to beauty, usability or content whether on mobile or cinema-display, while still optimizing bandwidth and user experience appropriately.

Pollen Brands is a rare gem.

We looked for months for an agency that could provide first-class design and top-notch technical website capacity; we were looking for an organization where technology experts and design experts truly work together. Pollen Brands is at the forefront of design innovation: collaborative problem solving with the highest standards of quality and an uncompromising commitment to excellence.
