Merry Christmas from S8080



2014 has been another wonderful year. We’ve done some incredible things with our clients. From playing a part in helping Welsh Government deliver what is probably the world’s most comprehensive and engaging business information, guidance and advice website through to the hugely successful #Vampireenergy Halloween campaign that helped the Dept. of Energy and Climate Change show thousands of consumers how easy it is to save a pile of cash. The Prime Minister even tweeted it!

Our EPiServer experience continues to attract attention at the very highest levels with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists being launched (thank you guys!) and continuing exciting developments working with the exceptional CITB team.

We also took part in the Swansea Bay 5K (warning – photos of sweaty, puffing developers!), we moved offices and had a number of talented people join our exceptional team.

We are very lucky to work with so many enthusiastic clients who are committed to improving the way people can interact with their organisations using the internet; it makes every single day interesting and rewarding.

The whole S8080 team would like to sincerely thank every single one of our clients for your support this year

We hope you enjoy your Christmas break and we’ll see you in 2015.

Move over ‘Selfie’, here’s the S8080 ‘Elfie’.

We’ve had another exciting year working on some wonderful projects. We would like to thank you sincerely for your support during 2013. The S8080 team and our clients have done some pretty amazing things together this year. Every single day is interesting and rewarding. Here’s to an equally exciting 2014!

We would like to point out that no elves were harmed during the making of this email…no really, we checked with our Elf & Safety Advisor!

By the way, we are looking for a talented graphic designer to join us, so if you know anyone who wouldn’t mind dressing up in a daft costume for next year’s Christmas card, please send them this link!

Sensible checkout IA & good usability – made my Christmas wine ordering fast!

This Christmas I managed to get everything online or from my local shops in Mumbles, it wasn’t until Wednesday 17th that I decided to get my wine online – Chris said Waitrose were cool so I gave gave them a whirl.

I must admit was impressed – the process just seemed effortless, I didn’t have to think and before I knew it it was all done – which made me think… why was it good?










What I liked:

  • It didn’t make me set up a password and an account so it was fast
  • It told me why they wanted my email
  • It told me how many steps there where and showed my progress
  • It told me what the required information was in the standard way
  • The next button was obvious (big and colourful) the back button was there but understated
  • I didn’t really have to read the forms just a quick scan
  • I did the whole order in a few minutes on my laptop in front of the TV one evening

What I didn’t like:

  • Having to give my date of birth to prove I was over 18

and yes my wine arrived the next day – hopefully I’ve picked some nice bottles!
