New Website for Stonehaven Folk Festival
We were thrilled when Stonehaven Folk Festival recently asked us to redesign their website in the run up to the launch of their 2017 event.
Now in its 28th year, Stonehaven Folk Festival has become something of an annual tradition on the Folk music calendar, drawing talented musicians from around the globe to our wee spot here in the north east of Scotland. However the buzz or excitement of what the festival offered wasn't conveyed on the old site, and so we created a completely new look to give visitors more of a flavour of what they can expect.
As well as a fresh design and layout, more prominence was given to the guest line up as well as the unique fringe events the festival hosts such as the famous aqua ceilidh and world paper’n’comb championships!
Easy access menu navigation replaced the old system with a more intuitive drop down facility so users can see what’s happening on each of the 4 days of the festival, as well as the popular workshops taking place throughout the day. We also implemented a clearer breakdown of ticketing prices with links to online ticket outlets. Now users can secure their spot at the festival with ease.
For the Festival team we implemented a vastly improved content management system, allowing them to better manage the site and make updates to the line up as more acts were announced.
