New digital campaign for the British Basketball League

The team at 100AND10% was recently called upon to produce a new HTML campaign for the British Basketball League, the top flight of men’s professional basketball in the UK.

The campaign, which involved a series of HTMLs designed and created by 100AND10%, aims to raise awareness of BBL TV and the league’s upcoming fixtures, as well as encouraging online ticket sales via the league’s official ticketing partner, Tickets.com.

Alongside the HTMLs, 100AND10% was also responsible for editing a highlights video from raw footage provided by the BBL, profiling different teams each week.

This was then included in the e-mail, alongside fixtures for the coming week and links to buy tickets online. 

David Leyden Dunbar, BBL commercial director, said: “We approached 100AND10% to support the design of a new email campaign for the BBL following their presentation to our clubs at the recent ‘BBL Day’, hosted by Tickets.com at stadiummk.

“The aim of the campaign is to promote BBL TV, the upcoming weekend’s fixtures and the new online ticketing solution for all our clubs as hosted by Tickets.com. 100AND10% have supported in the design and build of the emails while we have also utilised their video skills to edit the highlights package linked to the email. Their skills, expertise and attention to detail have made the process a very simple one for the BBL and we are delighted with the initial results and feedback.” 

The videos are all available to view on the BBL’s YouTube channel.

Design refresh for UK Sport’s Leading Edge collateral

Following on from the brand creation and design of supporting collateral for leadership training programme Leading Edge in 2014, UK Sport have since commissioned 100AND10% to re-design the brochure for the 2015 cohort.

Run by UK Sport in partnership and collaboration with Sport England, Sport Scotland, Sport Wales and Sport Northern Ireland, Leading Edge is aimed at top level executives and chair people of national governing bodies.

The brochure re-design was as a result of a number of changes to the training content for 2015 and a requirement from UK Sport to differentiate between the 2014 and 2015 programmes.

Club Reward Scheme

British Judo re-launches Club Rewards

100AND10% has worked with British Judo on a number of projects over recent months, with a revamp of the national governing body’s Club Reward Scheme at the top of the list.

First launched in 2014, the British Judo Club Reward Scheme rewards clubs looking to develop and grow their membership; clubs can benefit from discounted or free equipment and masterclass coaching sessions, with rewards varying depending on the level of growth achieved.

The focus of the project was to give the scheme a recognisable identity and one that could be used across a range of marketing collateral and media; 100AND10% was responsible for creating the new identity, including the logo, and then rolling this out across a range of collateral. This included a brochure detailing the scheme and promotional materials including posters, flyers and digital graphics for use on the British Judo website and social media channels.

Commenting on the project, British Judo delivery director Mark Beecher, said: “We engaged with 100AND10% to support across a number of strategic marketing projects, including how we better communicate and support our network of judo clubs across the country.

“The new identity and creative for the British Judo Club Rewards Scheme was launched a few weeks ago and has had a very positive initial impact. Not only do we now have a clear plan for incentivising our clubs and a comms plan to deliver these messages, but the brand created by 100AND10% ensures all these comms and associated collateral now has real cut-through to one of our most important audiences.”

British Weight Lifting launches new website designed by 100AND10%

Looking to develop an exciting new look and feel to its website, British Weight Lifting enlisted 100AND10% to design and build a bigger, better and more interactive site for its members and visitors.

Improved functionality, increased interactivity and accessibility were central to the brief for the new website, whilst ensuring that it would still house all important information about the sports of weightlifting and para-powerlifting; the NGB’s new website has been enhanced by a suite of additional features, including new sections and interactive content delivered in a more user-friendly way.

Here are some of the features that the new website offers:

Competition Calendar
A new and improved Competition Calendar has been developed to provide users with all of the information they need for upcoming events. Now with a cleaner design and more user-friendly, events can now be added directly to Google+ Calendar or be exported through to an Apple device.

Meet our weightlifters
Video interviews with athletes were filmed and edited by 100AND10%, providing visitors with a detailed insight into life as a weightlifter and what it’s like competing at the top.

Club Finder
Users can now find their nearest weightlifting clubs through a postcode search function. This is integrated with Google Maps and will display a club’s location, website and contact information instantly.

Social media integration
The new website will allow users to connect directly to their Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pintrest accounts and many more applications, to share news and information.

Tips for the top
An archive of articles and photos to guide visitors through key lifting techniques, with advice from British Weight Lifting’s expert coaches.

In addition, 100AND10% has also designed a new and improved online shop, where customers can purchase official British Weight Lifting merchandise, as well as an updated membership management system; both of which are fully integrated with the new website.

“The project to design and build the new website for British Weight Lifting was a great opportunity for us to showcase our increased digital skills and experience in a large scale digital project for a major UK sporting body. The brief included all design work, photography and video production as well as navigation planning with a major B2C focus for the growing consumer base of BWL including members, coaches, athletes and spectators” explained Jonathan Wilson, 100AND10%’s managing director.

“We are really pleased with the outcome and initial feedback from the BWL team and users of the website and look forward to further developing the platform in line with the BWL’s ambitious growth plans for the sport”.
