Grand One 2018 for Best UX-design –

The site reflects the unique atmosphere and rapid growth of the event

We’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work with Slush since the 2013 event. The most interesting challenge has always been the fact that Slush keeps growing rapidly. Every year it’s not just a bigger event, but multiple big events. Read more about our work with Slush here.

Over the years, the amount of people updating and further developing the content has increased drastically. It’s fair to say that also the expectations for the event are lifted higher and higher every year.

“The Slush team has a unique touch to content. Everything always works smoothly and professionally with various photographers and writers and with all the amount of content. We have excellent content producers.” Jesse Pyy, CMO at Slush

We continue our work to make even better

Every year the site goes through multiple changes, because the event changes, and so do the users’ needs.

“This year we went really data driven, we researched what the users really do on the site and tried to understand the motivation behind their behaviour.” Mikael Toivio, Co-founder of Evermade

It has been an amazing journey for Evermade to work with such a unique event and team. We continue working with Slush on the 2018 event and hopefully for many more years to come.
