We loved transforming and developing the Spitalfields Music website and microsites, designing and engaging a vibrant platform that showcases the organisation’s upcoming events and projects. Being a creative charity based in East London, that uses music to bring diverse communities together through high-quality performances, we wanted to ensure that the website and microsites were high quality and reflective of the organisation’s creativity and community focus.
Take a look at the images above to see how the previous Spitalfields Music website (left image) has been transformed in the 2020 redesign (right image).
API integration with Spektrix ticketing
We integrated the website with Spektrix, so that Spitalfields Music can sell tickets to their events directly from their website, as well as receive donations, sell memberships and build their mailing list. We hooked up to v3 of the Spektrix API, made use of their shiny new web components, and built our own Spektrix WordPress plug-in, so that Spitalfields can choose their Spektrix events straight from their CMS. There is also an express checkout flow.
2020 Festival programme
As well as the website, we had the pleasure of designing the 2020 Festival Programme (see images below). Keeping in tone with the redesign of the site, the 2020 Festival programme tells you everything you need to know about the performances and events taking place across the Festival weekend. The creative and vibrant design aligns with the company’s image, making it an engaging and informative read.
"We worked with HdK to update our brand, relaunch our website, and create our annual music festival brochure. The service from HdK was outstanding - we dealt with the same people every time, and they really got to know us. They analysed all of the information we gave to them to come up with proposals and suggestions, rather than questions - this took a lot of weight off our shoulders. The creative outputs are really strong, and the new website & brand are a big improvement on the old. HdK also provided training to our team on the new website, and took care to ensure that what they were creating was in line with, or exceeded, our expectations. And they did it all to a very tight deadline. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others."
