ZogSports is the largest adult recreational sports league in the country, with over 115,000 players, leagues operating in five states, and sports ranging from kickball to cornhole. Named one of the fastest growing companies and best places to work, ZogSports was looking to bring their knowledge of fun and play to the next frontier: the workplace.
ZogCulture, the new company, had their goals already firmly in place: work with companies and workplaces to plan and host both in- and out-of-office events (like field days, holiday parties, or sports tournaments) focused on fun and building interpersonal connections. What they didn’t have was a company identity, so we worked with them to host a series of brand workshops and activities to discover what they wanted ZogCulture to be: tied to the existing ZogSports style without being a direct copy, playful but still professional, and bold without being over the top. From there, we created a series of brand explorations and moodboards to capture the perfect vibe for the new endeavor — a mashup of Nickelodeon game shows and an open office nine to five. We landed on an identity full of bright colors, playfully bold sans serif type, a cast of cartoon coworkers, and exploding confetti shapes.
Once we had the brand in place, we worked with the ZogCulture team to create a site map and content structure that could not only highlight their currently existing activities, but also grow with them as they expanded into more events and offerings. The responsive site was designed and built on a fully modular structure, allowing their team to mix and match pieces and parts like their very own customizable internet LEGO kit. We also worked to bring the “fun” throughout with interactive slider and map elements, colorful hover treatments, and animated confetti. Finally, we made sure that every page connected visitors directly with ZogCulture through a combination of simple and expanded contact forms tied directly into the HubSpot CRM, generating leads and sales funnels for future events in the most frictionless user flow possible.
