Almonte Celtfest

What they wanted …

An outdated and busy design was in dire need of a revamp to capture viewers’ attention and facilitate finding information on the website.

What we created  …

A complete redesign simplifying navigation with distinct areas for vendors, sponsors and social media was created.

The results …

Viewers were able to consistently find the information they were looking for with regards to the schedule, workshops and performers.  The colorful and fun graphics made the website more enticing and inspired a happy-go-lucky and carefree experience at the event.

The “Before” and “After” Story

 

Original About Page

ALMONTE CELTFEST ABOUT PAGE BEFORE REDESIGN

Issues
  1. Clover icons are used for navigation, they are located on a different area of each page, and they are in a different sequence on each page.
  2. The page is cluttered with icons, business logos, images and social media that are positioned in different areas on each page
  3. The social media buttons are located at the bottom of the About page but are not available on the other pages.

Redesigned Website

ALMONTE CELTFEST HOME PAGE AFTER REDESIGN

Solutions
  1. A consistent layout was established so that viewers knew exactly where to find information on each page.
  2. Consistent navigation was introduced using the top main menu.  Removing the clover icons simplified the navigation and cleaned up the clutter.  Viewers were able to locate all pages (including the Workshop page) using the top menu.
  3. Business logos were segregated onto two separate pages – one for Vendors and one for Sponsors – so it was crystal clear to viewers who the sponsors were.  Sponsors were also highlighted on the main page at the top right to emphasize the fact that they were helping fund the event.
  4. Media videos and photos were  added to a separate gallery page where viewers could enjoy browsing through them.
  5. The social media buttons found a home at the top right of the page so that viewers knew where to find them on every page.
