Heineken Club Quest website

Close

Overview

With a tradition dating back to Heineken’s Bierbrouwerij in 1863, Heineken is one of the world’s most recognised imported beer brands (NYX:HEIA).

In 1999, Digital Tsunami was approached to create a bilingual web presence for a national, summer-long campaign to be held across China. Heineken Club Quest was a search for two talented people (a DJ and a ‘personality’), through a series of heats in large nightclubs across the country.

Utilising Heineken’s online style guide (including graphics and hexadecimal colours), the website included instructions, schedule, booking forms, images, video and progressive results, in simplified Chinese characters and English.

To address concerns about page loading time, given the limited access and connection speeds in China at the time, Digital Tsunami co-located the site on webservers in Beijing and Boston (USA), so that wherever the visitor, maximum access speed was guaranteed.

As multiple heats were held each week, Digital Tsunami regularly updated the website until the winners were announced months later.

This dynamic and funky web presence contributed to the massive success of the campaign.

The services provided included the registration of our domain name, establishment of our email accounts, and development & hosting of our website, were all executed rapidly and effectively. We also appreciate the service of upgrading our list of 150 shelf company names (in Chinese characters and English) every 2 weeks.

We valued the high level of creative design provided by Digital Tsunami, both for the website and the corporate identity.

The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.

Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.

We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.

I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.

I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.

The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.

The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.

I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.
