Events In The Sky – part of the global Dinner in the Sky group – came to us with a proper challenge. Redevelop their ageing brand; create a complete new brand for their upcoming public events, redesign and build their site whilst making it fully responsive for the mobile market and finally integrate a custom-built online bookings and payments system. All within six weeks.
Upon agreeing a basic proposal and budget, Kit and James M headed down South to meet the clients on-site in London. Working through an afternoon and several cups of coffee, we identified key project requirements, put together the key (albeit rough) wireframes and a content strategy which would underpin our decision making over the coming weeks.
With this in place, we then finalised our wireframes, using them as a basis for mobile and desktop designs. Megan worked closely with the clients to create a portfolio of potential brand solutions, which was then used as a jumping-off point for their public events branding.
While all this was going on, James H and Chris worked through integrating our designs into Shopify, their chosen booking & payment partner, and building the site to client requirements – all within a strict, non-flexible deadline.
Since the site launched, Events In The Sky have seen a significant rise in enquiries, bookings and profile alike. The 2015 public event 100% sold out purely through online sales, with significant spikes in traffic handled by our server with ease.
