Large have been re-appointed by Agent Provocateur and won the De Beers and Sunglass Hut websites in competitive pitches.

Following a successful first year, where their website and e-marketing campaign have received widespread critical acclaim and been short-listed for a prestigious D&AD award, Agent Provocateur have re-appointed large as their creative agency. In addition to developing the e-commerce enabled website, Large have carried out email marketing campaigns, developed the Agent Provocateur newsletter, designed and implemented the online magazine ‘Knickers Forever’ and designed the 2004/05 pop-up catalogue.

In a competitive pitch De Beers LV have selected large to create a bi-lingual English and Japanese website. The objective of the site is to emphasise the enduring quality and beauty of diamonds. The site will provide an online jewellery advisor based on the 4Cs diamond guide introduced by De Beers in 1939 in order to provide consumers with a reference for evaluating diamonds – Cut, Colour, Carat and Clarity. Furthermore, De Beers require a content management system that allows an in-house team to manage and update content on the site. Large intend to use their own bespoke CMS, which has been used for clients such as Agent Provocateur, Bang & Olufsen, Haven Europe and Kick It Out (the Kick Racism Out of Football Campaign).

US based Luxottica Retail have appointed large to update the design and structure of the Sunglass Hut website so that it is consistent with its new brand position as a fashion-led brand. Sunglass Hut plans to reinvigorate its online presence with initial content to come from Swim Shows Miami. Large will conceive, design and build the site and take responsibility for content provision, including photography and video footage from live events.
