Times change, values remains
Wempe leans on a 140-year old family tradition, merely because they’ve always valued a personal relationship with their customers. In this day and age, however, even those traditional companies can’t escape digital transition.
But how do you transfer existing values to the digital world of e-commerce?
The consumer remains king
Dept and Wempe created a digital experience for customers who have an affinity for the finer things in life. Personal service is at the heart of every Wempe showroom, as it should in the digital equivalent. We looked closely and found three things people experience when visiting Wempe: beautiful surroundings, knowledgeable friendly personnel and insightful stories.
We used these insights as inspiration for the new Wempe e-commerce platform and created a stunning visual identity, that revolves around the typography and styling used in luxury watches. We set up visual guidelines for an approachable, warm photography-style that shows the high-quality products proportion to the wearer and the people making the pictures seem warm and likeable.
