Project overview
Carwow is a fast-paced internet scale-up that challenges the industry norms within the automotive space. The product connects B2C customers to dealerships via an innovative online platform, helping them find a new, used, or leased car and buy it at a discounted price that customers can feel confident with.

In September of 2019, the company wanted to give its customers and fans a chance to invest in the growing business through crowdfunding, aiming to raise £2m, with an over funding cap of £5m. In just three weeks of the campaign being live, we smashed the target to raise a total of £5m.
Key results
• The £2m funding target was reached within 24 hours.
•  £5m raised overall from over 8,000 investors via CrowdCube.
• The pitch deck, campaign assets, and landing page all launched on time and smoothly!

My role: Lead Designer
The executive team turned to myself and the in-house marketing and development team to put together a Landing page, Investor Slide Presentation and Social Campaign Assets promoting the crowdfunding opportunity to customers.

Investor slide presentation, template design examples

I decided to design all the slide templates using Google Docs & Slides to collaborate with all stakeholders involved. In addition, choosing Google Slides allowed the content to be adjusted, edited, and reviewed simultaneously as design work. Cross-functional collaboration was essential to meet the deadline and launch the campaign on time.

Landing page
Promoting the opportunity to customers
I worked directly with the development team, designing and building the landing page in just a few days. The process was a pure collaboration between myself and the developer, working in Sketch, InVision and making UX and UI adjustments within the browser on the go.
