Renaultsport

by August Client: Renault
The Brief

The brief called for a complete transformation of the Renaultsport website to bring it up to date and deliver a user experience as thrilling as its high- performance road cars.

The Challenge

The objective was to design and build a platform that would give Renault the ability to showcase its products while engaging customers through community features and editorial content.

Creative Approach

From a design point of view, a key challenge was to develop a look and feel that is at once recognisable as Renault, but then to elevate that to a place that excites fans of the Renaultsport sub-brand.

This was achieved by delivering an interface design that is an extension of Renault’s corporate brand identity with the addition of new typefaces and interface elements. Tapping into Renaultsport’s fanbase, August Media produced a highly visual responsive design that makes use of large, dynamic imagery and graphical site elements.

Content was key to the design solution, using a ‘module approach’ to facilitate different content types (text, images, countdown mechanisms, social-media blocks and championship results).

A number of interaction features have been incorporated to give users feedback as they navigate through the interface, delivering an engaging and visceral user experience in keeping with the strategic brand objectives.

The Results

We received some superb client feedback from this project:

“This year a key part of our roadmap is to focus on the Renaultsport brand – delivering more content, greater community engagement and an overall better user experience to our customers and fans. At the forefront of this was the redevelopment of Renaultsport.co.uk. I’m delighted that we appointed our long-standing digital supplier, August Media, to deliver this work. As a brand it is vital that you can rely on an agency to develop a vision for your business and then execute that vision. August Media has proven once again that it is an agency that can be relied on for outstanding design, development and delivery!”
