Domino's Pizza Tracker

Meet Dom, Your new personal pizza Tracker. Dom will guide you through the process from Order to Delivery, giving you interactive content as you do.


As part of our work on building dominos as a participation brand, we evolved the existing online pizza tracker. We introduced consumers to 'Dom' your personal pizza companion who guides you through the process from order to delivery. Dom provides interaction throughout, including jokes facts and bespoke content about the pizza making process.

Project Athena

A future proof platform for the entire VR network, covering 12 village locations and 20+ languages.


Each village had its own unique KPis and business objectives so creating a one size fits all solution was a challenge. We created an ecosystem and architecture that would facilitate the needs of all villages and meet the umbrella objectives. Also creating a 'visual language' that would retain the premium aesthetic that is synonymous with the villagess. The result is a modular, component driven fully resposnive site that harnesses the functionality of a flexible CMS in order to create bespoke, relevant experiences for users.

Project Black

Redesign of the iris website focussing on the proposition of 'Building Participation Brands'. The homepage forms a 'shop window in to the world of iris


Building participation is a key part of our business, and as part of that we wanted our company website to reflect that aspiration. We wanted to create a website that was a shop window into the world of iris and use it as a platform to showcase the great work we are doing, but also highlight our other areas of expertise. The result is an intuitive, high impact platform that is in line with our proposition of 'Building Participation' between our brands and their customers.

#NOTNORMAL

We’ve no idea why people create MINI birthday cakes or sculpt genius sandcastles, we’re just happy that they do. So we’re celebrating all the inventive ways that they show their passion for our cars.


Launch the ‘NOT NORMAL’ global positioning in the UK, making it relevant to audience who’ve grown up with the brand.We searched social media for fans creations, sourced their images, tracking down the originators. We then saluted their creativity and name checked them on digital posters and online. (some were reshot for quality purposes). All comms inspired fans to share their NOT NORMAL creations with us via our Tumblr hub or by tagging it with #MININOTNORMAL. Their submissions we’re then turned into new ads daily online and the best became 6,48 and 96 sheet posters.

Biography

I'm Pete Brown a Designer, Art director and Digital native. I am currently Head of Digital Design at iris, where with some of the industries most talented people, we create appropriate, functional and highly crafted digital experiences for some of the biggest brands on the planet.


I’m an advocate of creative collaboration, drawing on the right skills and disciplines at the right time to achieve the best possible solution. I believe as a designer you should always be innovating, always looking for new ways to solve problems. I’m eager to bring new thinking to the table and am passionate about innovations and trends within the digital landscape.

Striking the right balance between craft and function is an integral part of the creative process. The beauty in a digital product lies in its interaction and its experience, as much as in its visual aesthetic. Using animation and micro-interactions to make the user journey as un-intrusive as possible is hugely important for me.

I have been working in the design industry for 11 years and have been lucky enough to work with some great brands including MINI, Dominos, Samsung & Phillips and also great development partners such as B-Reel, MediaMonks and Stink Digital.

My work has been recognised by various publications and has been awarded by Campaign, The Webbys, The Lovies and the FWA.
