Business needs and goals

Our client’s business goal was creating an end-to-end music festival website with unique design that would stand out from other similar online showcases. It needed to be universal and serve the company for the years to come. That’s why we had to anticipate possible future requirements and functionalities, like changing the leading colour or the theme

Project’s scope

We started our cooperation with a workshop to get a closer look at the client’s needs. As a result, we created mockups on unique views for varied types of subpages. Then, after they’ve been accepted, we started creating graphic designs as a starting point for creating the website. After final corrections, we were able to commence the process of implementation.
