Dear friend,

Lights, camera, action. At DPDK we keep movin'. A shoot for Nationale Nederlanden within one week, organizing a meet-up and launching a brand new event website. Every day is a new adventure at DPDK. Move with us and get mesmerized by our latest work.
Evite is an invitation management company which makes sure that the entire invitation process for events is taken care of. From large music events to congresses: Evite arranges the invitation, analysis, welcoming guests and making sure the guestlist is up to date at all times.
Easy as pie UX
99% of the evite.nl visitors are already aware of the company and visit the website to enlarge their knowledge. To make the experience as friendly and easy to approach as possible, our goal was to create seamless transitions between the alive & digital. The user should experience the same friendliness and openness on the site as the people form Evite made you feel. This is also supported by the different color per item. Together with the idiom which matches the logo, completes the easy-as-pie UX.
Several components within the site give you the 'custom' feeling: the doodle style illustrations are almost like you ended up in a conversation with an Evite employee, who sketched your custom made plan of approach on invitationmanagement. The tone of voice is straight forward, open and playful. Also the quotes from clients and Evite employees give the site an accessible feeling.
The style is open and transparant, which is supported by the animations. They feel friendly and make it easier for you to navigate through the different pages.
Evite.nl exists out of a homepage with a brief summary, followed by the deeper story behind each part. The photos are chosen under strict guidelines to support the personalization even more. All images show real Evite people, are fitted conform rules and have an equal focus effect. Also, the warmth in the photo's are an important similarity
For one of our clients we started working on an interactive video. A lot to prepare upfront and counting down the days to the shoot itself... So much fun!
To give you all some insights on our shoot days, we created a behind the scenes video. Including some serious business, a lot of laughter and a lovely result in the end.

Awards Fest
It is starting to become a real DPDK-thing: Chemistry MeetUps! Regarding this MeetUp: think warm beverages, traditional barbecue and the coolest talks! We found Thijs van Hoof (Random Studio) and Dirk van Ginkel (all the way from Jam3, Toronto) willing to join our gathering and they'll talk about all the magic they're working on.

We've got some spots left, so RSVP on our MeetUp page and we'll save you a seat and a burger!
Some lucky bastards of our #DPDKfamily were the chosen ones to visit London and collect our Lovies for Russell and OASEN. A short stay that contained it all: a nice party, enough drinks, a handsome crowd and a dosage of sleep deprivation.
