‘Pull the audience into an imaginative and captivating experience through the site.’
Joli Vyann, created by Olivia Quayle and Jan Patzke in 2012 is an innovative fusion of circus, dance and theatre, blurring the boundaries of where each begins and ends. Topright were asked to develop an Arts website design for Joli Vyann that would showcase their new fusion style and ‘pull the audience into an imaginative and captivating experience,’ just as their performances do.
Aesthetics are crucial when designing a website but functionality plays an even bigger part of the design process. Therefore understanding how a website is going to work in terms of it’s user experience, navigation and responsiveness is key to a good website.
A selection of large imagery was chosen and placed throughout the site on each of the different pages. These are striking and engage the user immediately, helping to promote their work.
The menu is simple and allows the user to navigate through the site easily and quickly. There are additional quick-links to each of their shows on the homepage to maximise user experience. User functionality allows for social sharing on the footer of each page as well as listing their contact details.
We integrated blue tones across the website at various different points to help bring the site together and build consistency. The left hand top corners of boxes across the site are ‘cut off’ to add a unique styling.
