The Framework Design team initially began working with Speedo to develop a brand strategy for their digital estate. Our team began by examining Speedo’s brand positioning and also conducted competitor research and research into Speedo’s target audiences.

Speedo’s main goal for their new brand strategy was to find a way of bringing together all of their digital estate, as they had a number of separate sites for training, different product launches, and their blog. The Framework team worked to deliver a plan that would ensure that everything was properly transferred into one domain, allowing Speedo to have a more cohesive digital offering.

Having established a strategy to allow Speedo to unite their digital estate, the Framework developers began to put the plan into action. Due to the size of the project, conventional website platforms did not have the capacity needed to achieve a united digital estate for a company as vast as Speedo. As a result, the Framework development team worked to build a bespoke component-based system that would allow Speedo to easily programme their website and piece their digital estate together. The component system was made up of easy to use modules that allowed text, images and other elements to be installed.

our developers also worked on several international websites for Speedo that were then rolled out in a variety of languages, enabling Speedo to reach their customers all across the globe.

The Framework Design team also produced a mobile-first online system for Speedo, called Swim Coach. This was a free digital coaching tool that sat alongside Speedo’s e-commerce offerings and allowed swimming enthusiasts to view and download swim plans, as well as plans for other fitness activities such as yoga and cycling.
