EVENT HOSTING: IMPROVING THE FIRST MILE OF FOOD DISTRIBUTION
Fellow B Corp InspiraFarms provides on and off-grid refrigeration units to farmers in developing countries. We worked together to host its first ‘Future of Fresh’ event in London. The evening was a discussion of the challenges around the first mile of food distribution and how companies like InspiraFarms help farmers earn more for their produce while expanding their access to export markets in the UK and beyond.
The event saw speeches from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) and the Shell Foundation, who have partnered with InspiraFarms to conduct research on finding solutions to post-harvest food losses and conduct other field trials. InspiraFarms also debuted a mini-documentary highlighting their products at work and the farmers who use them to store their crops. It was a huge success with positive feedback from a mix of attendees from government bodies, universities and notable trade media, including The Grocer and AgriInvestor.
WEBSITE DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT
Website creation is a core part of our design business. We work with clients around the world to build a website from scratch or to refresh an existing design.
We always begin with the fundamentals – a discussion to fully understand your brand, your audiences and your website goals. In some cases, our client teams support with web text, in other cases we will deliver a designed and coded website for you to edit in-house. We will work with you to develop a timescale for delivery and completion.
We created a website for our client Resource Futures, an environmental consultancy with a complex set of stakeholders. Their website needed to be easy to navigate but speak clearly to organisations ranging from public bodies, to policy makers, to not-for-profits. We worked with the in-house team to create a brand ‘look’ for the website as well as a site map for easy navigation for all users. The resulting design is bold and fresh, yet clear.
“We’re delighted with the new website Gong has created for us. Our new website really reflects who we are and what we do; we’ve had great feedback and we’ve already seen potential new business coming in as a result. The team at Gong have been great to work with – from the initial workshop through the design process and ongoing support.”
