After we completed their new website, the Writers’ Centre Norwich commissioned us to develop a new site for the International Literature Showcase, an online resource to connect everyone who works in literature both in the UK and across the world.
We began work in early September, with only five weeks in which to design, develop and make the site live for it’s online festival week in October.
As it was a companion piece to the Writers’ Centre site, we were briefed to keep the graphic design similar to acknowledge this, but everything else was new. We created unique advanced search functionality and easy user journeys to aid discovery of the featured British writers and organisations, as discovery, networking and connectivity was one of the main objectives of the site.
The site went live at nine a.m. on the deadline of October 17th and has been well received so far by it’s target audience. The Writers’ Centre Norwich were pleased we turned around the project with such a tight deadline with our small team, but we couldn’t have done it without them. Group hug!
