We were delighted to get the opportunity to re-design the Folk on the Pier website from scratch, bringing the look and feel - and most importantly, performance - up to date. The festival takes place in Cromer, Norfolk every year and has got some great imagery, so we knew wanted to use a large banner image that captured the energy and verve of a typical live performance; hence our choice of the magnificent TRADarr. in action. The client has the ability to update both the main and fringe festival programmes year by year, courtesy of a custom-implemented content management system (CMS) and the store is powered by the excellent Ecwid e-commerce service. A neat social sharing widgets allows visitors to share web pages instantly on their favourite social media accounts and down the road, we're pretty sure there's an Instagram feed on the way.
When the much-loved live homage to Bob Dylan finally hung up its spurs, the band felt it was important to maintain a presence on the web with a simple holding page. We used the Foundry framework - based on Twitter Bootstrap - to create a simple, single page site that that thanked the fans and made it clear that the band was no longer a going concern. The animated rule under the heading was designed to echo the chaps' wish to draw a line under the venture. P.J. Wright, Steve Gibbons, Gerry Conway, Dave Pegg and Phil Bond all continue with their own solo and band projects and are probably busier than ever! The lack of an email address is deliberate.
