Studio + is an online events organizer and guide for film events, screenings and exhibitions relating to cinema. I created this project as part of the class, Managing a Digital Project as part of my MA at Birkbeck, University of London. For the project, I developed the business concept, researched and implemented management strategies such as understanding the company’s aims and objectives and target user audience. I also did a competitor analysis of the event market, completed a risk analysis, crafted a work plan and draft budget headings.
After investigating the business and management side of the potential project, I designed the overall style guide and crafted high fidelity prototypes in Sketch and Invision.
The main objective of the site is to guide the user to select events. I incorporated two main calendar designs that give the user to ability to find events either by day or month. The calendars have a filter function that lets the user choose which type of event to display either a Q&A, Introduction, Film Festival or Party. The goal of Studio + is to a highly curated, and therefore established source of events from respected institutions in the film industry in London. Therefore, another important feature of the site is the ability to search by Institution on the Clients Page.
Studio + aims to work with cultural institutions in London and venues that feature unique film events such as Q&A’s with the directors or panel discussion with experts in the industry. The Client page allows the viewer to easily scroll alphabetically to find a venue with practical details readily available on hover.
Subscribe & About
The subscribe and about pages are minimal with bold typography that aims to make subscribing to the newsletter and following on social media simple and easily accessible.
The responsive mobile design of the site showcases the event with large images, a brief description and an easy to access call to action button to book tickets for the event.
Mobile Calendar and Filter System
Quickly find events of the day or browse the entire month. The bold filter system allows the user to find specific types of events without having to scroll through the entire layout.
