As Saltaire residents, we wanted to give something back to the community. When we volunteered to help out at the Saltaire Festival, redesign and development of their website was the obvious job for us!
The Saltaire Festival is a community event which involves input from numerous members that run a number of small events throughout the 9 day period.
The challenge we faced was planning a website that would allow the organisers to add information associated with their individual events while maintaining a consistency throughout all pages.
As always, after thoroughly planning how we were going to achieve the project objectives, we designed the initial home page look and feel.
This was immediately signed off and was used to dictate the general look and feel for all other marketing material for the event. Something we’re particularly proud of!
The event caters for the general public which means a majority of website visits would come from mobile phones.
We paid close attention to ensuring the website was easy to use across all mobile devices. As always, we went through a thorough testing process!
From our initial discussions, it was clear that Xpand understood what we were looking for and the team were great to work with. Whenever we had a question, it was answered quickly and the replies inspired confidence in the abilities of the team members.
The website has exactly the right look. It is clean, clear and fresh and we are confident it will attract visitors to the site. It is also very user-friendly on mobiles and tablets which was a key aspiration for the re-design.
Many thanks to everyone involved.
