Pacific Brands upgrades profit guidance as Bonds, Sheridan shine

– The Age


Take a cheeky glance at the waistband of an Aussie’s underwear and you’re likely to see a Bonds logo, with every household owning more than nine Bonds products on average. With an iconic brand, an impressive foothold in the retail market and a high performing desktop online store, we were presented with an exciting challenge to improve the user experience for Bond’s online store, applying a mobile first approach.


This project’s unique challenge was to balance the already successful elements of the current interface, whilst making meaningful adjustments to increase mobile conversion, allow for ongoing development and branded campaign content.


Bonds have a vibrant and well-loved brand personality which was well reflected in the original website. An audit of the site found however that site speeds were slow due to a large number of images being uploaded. We understood that over 50 per cent of Bonds’ traffic was coming from mobile devices, which led to our device agnostic approach to UX. 

We focussed heavily on testing the path to purchase, ensuring that users could not only find their desired products quickly and easily, but flow through the checkout process with minimal distraction. To alleviate site speed issues, we introduced CSS driven, responsive promotional tiles and banners that packed a vibrant visual punch across all devices.

The result is a stylish yet playful digital ode to the iconic Bonds brand – reliable but never, ever boring.

A carbon neutral studio

Carter's fine folk sit at recycled timber desks, type on keyboards powered by rechargeable batteries, walk on carpet made from recycled tyres and plastic bags. They breathe air created by an in-office garden and drink tea heated by an environmentally-friendly kettle. These ‘Digital HTTPsters’ hold meetings within a den of recycled paper accordion walls that weave throughout the studio.

When it’s time to leave, the crew grab their bags from upcycled lockers that once lived at a nearby AFL Club. They flick the switch on low-energy lights powered by 100% wind sourced energy. Journeying home, they walk, ride and catch public transport.

Principal, James Noble, hand-crafted the furniture from recycled timber, layered and sealed using biodegradable glue. Now that’s commitment.
