IntroductionMy ProcessProject Results & Details

Independent film festival held annually in Cork

Who Are They?

IndieCork is a Cork-based independent film festival which is ran every October. They champion independent productions from Cork, from Ireland and from across the world. Great films, special experiences & some fun along the way is what IndieCork does best!

What Did I Do?

IndieCork have contacted us every summer for the past 8 years to help out with updating their website. We helped IndieCork spread the word of their festival with a clean design which ensures that viewers can find the festival information they need in an instant.

IndieCork Festival will be running this year from Oct 6 to 13, 2024, at The Arc Cinema

How Did I Do It?

  1. Research: Client meetings and phone calls, competitor analysis, existing online presence research and SEO research.
  2. Objectives:
    1. Improve their online presence via a website redesign.
    2. Enhance website user experience and responsiveness.
    3. Showcase their film programme more effectively to entice attendees.
  3. Prototype: Basic sketches then Figma.
  4. Design: Photoshop and WordPress CMS.
  5. Delivery: The project was completed within 3 months over multiple drafts. The client received a handover session with presentation to go through website maintenance and updates.

How Did I Resolve Pain Points?

  • Outdated website not reflecting the group’s creativity and positive message:
    • I redesigned the website to reflect the company’s creativity and positive message, incorporating vibrant colours, engaging visuals, and dynamic layouts.
    • I updated the website’s content to highlight the group’s values, mission, and achievements, conveying a positive and inspiring message to visitors.
  • Programs not available online, limited to in-person viewing:
    • I implemented an online platform on the website to make the group’s programs and offerings accessible to a wider audience.
    • I created dedicated pages for each program, providing detailed descriptions, schedules, and archive options for visitors to explore.
    • I utilised multimedia elements such as videos, photos, and reviews to showcase the benefits and outcomes of attending the festival.
    • I integrated secure registration and payment systems to streamline the enrolment process and facilitate online payments.
  • Lack of mobile responsiveness and sluggish loading times:
    • I optimised the website for mobile responsiveness to ensure it provides a seamless experience across all devices, including smartphones and tablets.
    • I implemented performance optimisations such as image optimisation, code minification, and server caching to improve loading times and enhance overall performance.

Conclusion:

After the website’s redesign, we’ve seen a notable boost in overall performance, an increase in successful program downloads, and heightened engagement with customers through a rise in inquiries. While specific figures are pending, the positive anecdotal feedback underscores the success of the redesign in enhancing user experiences and fostering meaningful interactions.
