Arran Folk Festival
The organisers of the Arran Folk Festival approached me to create a new site where they could present the programmes for their annual music festival. I took the approach of combining imagery relating to ‘Arran’, ‘Folk’ and ‘Festival’.
Atop each page lies a stylized image of Goatfell, a testament to its imposing outline as seen from Brodick, Arran’s gateway.

For the home page, I envisaged a set of posters for each area of the site, and a canonical poster for each year the site has covered. The posters also reappear on sub-pages approriate to the content.

The page design consists of the Goatfell header and a three shade system for other areas of the page. Using style sheets, a simple system was possible whereby each page has three shades of a different colour. The typography is purposefully strict as the main purpose of the site is to disseminate details.

To enable visitors to book tickets by cheque, I produced a printable booking form in Adobe Acrobat format. The form is clearly laid out and retains the Goatfell header.
