Bristol Festivals are an umbrella organisation designed to sustain and develop the rich festival ecology across Bristol. This fine city of ours is famous for its music, but equally well known for its festivals of art, heritage, science and sport.
Bristol Festivals needed to design and build a clean, contemporary website with a calendar interface for audiences to find information about upcoming festivals in the city and establish themselves as the go-to listings site for festival info.
We built a bold and simple site with a navigation that reflects our single purpose: to provide festival info as easily as possible. It serves the content first and gets Bristol Festivals out of the way. Users can find festivals in whatever way they want – using categories, calendars, searches and a-z indexes. Our designs also needed to standardise the festival visuals in order for each to retain a relatively equal level of prominence without relying on big, beautiful imagery which smaller festivals might not have. Additionally, we gave Bristol Festivals a bright, punchy identity that won’t overwhelm users who are looking for their favourite festivals.
