Background
In January 2020 Dazze Studio designed and built the first Nighthawks website, a showcase site
, picking up x6 awards in the process. 13 months later, to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of Nighthawks, we launched their eCommerce store.

Work
Nighthawks wanted the ‘product to do all the talking’ and be ‘extremely’ easy-to-use for their customers, with the focus on the latest in-store deliveries and latest News posts.
To showcase the product we used a single font, a palette of only 3 colours and worked within a responsive 4 column layout.

Results
We optimised Nighthawks to load, on average, under 1.5 seconds to their target Japanese audience with a global average of 1.9 seconds.
