Tahola initially approached Bubble to work on a new microsite for one of their Business Analytics solutions – ‘TaholaCloud for Hospitality’. We worked together to create an engaging and informative way of bringing the solution alive. This was achieved through striking design and the use of animation to tell a user case scenario, relating to the adoption of TaholaCloud within a fictional Hospitality organisation.
Tahola were thrilled with the outcome of the Microsite design and the assets created for it have become synonymous with the solution now. Tahola wanted to create the same strong brand identity to the company as a whole and to the other solutions and services they provide. Tahola subsequently selected Bubble to become their ‘Virtual Design Partner’. Since the partnership began in November 2018, Bubble has provided a wide range of design services for Tahola and continue to work in partnership as their ‘Virtual Design Partner’ on a retained basis.
For Tahola it was key that Bubble had a detailed understanding about their business, the solutions they provide and the markets in which they operate. We took the time to fully understand the company’s ethos to gain a detailed understanding of where the brand needs to be positioned and who its audience is.
By understanding the vision for the business, its mission, and the strategic goals, we started to work out how to link all that we’ve learned to the relevant solutions and brand and once we were confident in our understanding, we prioritised the design elements and got to work.
The core messages were:
Bubble worked in close partnership with Tahola and held regular meetings to discuss ongoing and future projects to ensure that deadlines could be met. Over a very short period of time we have built up a strong working relationship and have become a trusted advisor and creator for the majority of Tahola’s design requirements. The relationship we have developed with Tahola really is a shining example of how providing Virtual Design to a company can add real value to the business. The partnership works particularly well because Tahola always come to us with interesting and innovative ways regarding, what and how they want to do things, allowing us to be creative and think outside of the box to provide new and exciting design ideas that make them stand out from the crowd.
WEBSITE: Design and build of a modern, sophisticated, but accessible website that clearly promotes the Tahola brand and their products and services, in an innovative and engaging way to include:
FLYERS/BROCHURES: Professionally designed layout for case studies and flyers ensuring everything produced was consistent and in line with the brand messages. Quality marketing collateral for use online and at events and conferences.
BANNERS/EXHIBITION GRAPHICS: Design and build management of an exhibition stand, including banners and a full shell scheme. Superb exhibition graphics and project management for a diverse set of solutions, each time tailored specifically for the stand space and location, exhibition, target audience, and engagement required.

INFOGRAPHICS/ICONS: Design of infographics, solution and service icons, with cleverly branded design for specific messages and audiences, including designs created for a Tahola Office re-brand.
“Working with Bubble has been a delight, they always go the extra mile to understand our requirements. They really are a virtual extension to the Tahola Marketing Team and provide all of our design requirements from creating a stylish and elegant corporate website and fun and innovative solution Microsite, amongst many other creative design projects. We wanted to stand out from our competitors and Bubble have certainly helped us to achieve that. It’s so important to be able to get on with the people you partner with and we really feel we have developed our relationship over a short period of time and see Bubble as a trusted partner, not simply a supplier”.
