Hull Cartridge

Brand Heritage, Reloaded.

The Brief

Hull Cartridge are a heritage brand who have been synonymous with excellence in shotgun ammunition since 1947. Ready to launch the next chapter in the long history of their business, they partnered with us to launch a new brand website.

Our challenge was not merely to help sell more ammunition, but to authentically represent the essence of the Hull Cartridge experience—a tradition of excellence that has resonated with shooting enthusiasts for over 75 years.

The crux of the challenge lay in delving into the psyche of the brand’s audience, understanding the nuanced decisions that guide their choices. Beyond the technicalities of ammunition, we aimed to capture the spirit and preferences of a community deeply connected to the art of shooting. This would require an appreciation of not just what they buy, but why they buy; exploring the values, traditions, and aspirations that shape their purchasing decisions.

Our Approach

Collaborating closely with the team at Hull Cartridge, our approach involved a deep exploration of the culture of shooting, the competitive landscape, the purchasing mindset of the customer base, and the intricacies of the broad product range.

From this understanding, we outlined features that would not only strengthen connections with existing brand advocates, but also attract and convert new customers. This laid the foundation for a digital platform that seamlessly marries tradition with innovation, encapsulating the essence of the company’s rich legacy and commitment to staying at the forefront of the industry.

Additionally, we prioritised the development of a user-friendly backend, empowering the Hull Cartridge team with an intuitive content management system. This was a focus of the project to ensure seamless day-to-day operations, allowing the team to effortlessly update content, manage the product range, and quickly process ecommerce orders.
