The Consulting Chronicle vol.1
Here’s a summary of interesting discoveries that the Investis Consulting team has made recently as we go about our work. Showcasing new projects, innovative content, smart tech and good reads:
|U & I new site
uandiplc.com recently went live, following the merger and re-brand of Development Securities and Cathedral Group. By collaborating with brand agency North Design, we’ve delivered something that we think is truly ‘fresh’ in the corporate space.
|A company of thinkers?
We love this ‘Who We Are’ video from architects Hawkins/Brown. It would be great to see more large companies producing content that is fun, engaging, and a fantastic demonstration of their employee culture.
We came across what3words at the Brilliant Noise conference, Dots. They have identified an ingenious method of providing everyone in the world with a unique address. The challenges this answers are equally astounding.
|How do I get there?
This week the consultants Slack channel has been chatting about navigation UX and in particular the current trend for horizontal menus, e.g. no left hand nav. As is often the case in these moments we asked What would Jakob Nielsen do?
|The modern Mad Men
Finally this week, we enjoyed this read about a day in the life at the offices of the mighty Pentagram design agency. Their competitive and hands-on ‘partners’ model is fascinating and obviously keeps the ideas flowing.
