Relentless has recently redesigned and redeveloped the 3DS website to showcase their amazing work.

Our process began with a full audit of the former website and we provided technical consultation for website enhancements based on analytics data. We then entered the design phase and worked with 3DS to come up with a website design that was true to their brand and drew attention to their projects. Once design was approved, we developed the responsive website and worked with 3DS staff to populate the project categories.

We really enjoyed developing this website as it contains so many interesting exhibits and stories. We look forward to a long-term relationship with 3DS as we continue to manage and optimize their website accordingly.

Darklands Berlin

Industries: Retail
Services: Development, Marketing, Insights

Relentless has just launched the new Darklands Berlin website with a modern minimalist design. The goal of the website redesign was to showcase the ultra-high-end designer labels and clothing, while creating an atmosphere that emulates the storefront itself. The website receives a tremendous amount of traffic from major fashion capitals such as New York, London, Paris, and Hong Kong, and Darklands therefor wanted to ensure a consistent experience for all international visitors and the wide range of devices they use to browse the web.

Relentless has been working with Darklands since 2008, and we’re always blown away by the incredibly unique (and expensive) products that they source from leading fashion designers worldwide.
