The Jacky Winter Group


Jacky Winter (JW), the illustrious Australian illustrators agency based in Melbourne, is a beautiful, ever-evolving organisation run by go-getter, inspiration and mensch, Jeremy Wortsman.

We helped Jeremy redesign and relaunch the JW website in late 2015—a mammoth task involving a brand refresh and a complete overhaul of the site’s user experience.

The site contains over 10,000 images from over 100 artists. To make trawling through the deep pool of artists easier, we constructed a standalone search function that allows for natural language queries. Users can select from a list of common (and not-so-common) enquires in order to find an artist.

In order to improve on-site communications, a custom live chat module was crafted that connects users directly to the internal Jacky Winter Slack. Through this integration, users can view the internal dialogue of the agency in one pane while striking up a conversation in the other.

Along with the above, we also added a number of backend functions and front-end editing features to suit the production team at Jacky Winter.
