Farfetch | Top 100 Data Visualisation

Dubai, 2018

Concept Development


01. Challenge - 'Make Data Fashionable'  


Farfetch wanted a snapshot of data from a week to a month to be frozen in time, to highlight what's on trend or popular in this particular market right now. The visualisation was also meant to serve as a testament to just how powerful Farfetch is as an ecommerce platform. Valuable and actionable insights were also gathered from the piece, informing future buying strategies, marketing allocation and/or consumer behaviour touchpoints.


“We've heard

that it looks like

Space Odyssey,

as if you're travelling

through space and time.

We'll take it! ”

02. Solution - Behaviour on a Macro and Micro Level 


The circular visualisation was a creative means to highlight Farfetch's diverse brand range and the retailer's presence across both global and Middle Eastern markets. Two types of data came together to form a two-part installation: transactions (orders placed over time, and values) and brand ranges, which were then filtered on a global and regional scale.


The circular body of the visualisation was a motif that's been carried through all of Holition's data visualisations, as a reference to the constantly evolving and revolving retail climate. The speckled colouring in the pieces followed the colour palette from the whole event, celebrating the vibrant Middle Eastern economy.

03. Insight - Inspiring Visuals to Prompt Insightful Decisions


Insights on behaviours by country, by transaction time and more could be gleaned from the visualisations. From a consumer perspective, the ability to determine which brands were popular by country or an individual country's purchase power is very interesting. The visualisation informed marketing and sales teams about which brands had the largest impact on sales by volume, location and frequency, in addition to generating a great backdrop for press and media selfies at the live event. 

“Holition helped make data digestible, beautify it and make it attractive to use as a sales and marketing piece.”
