Company

Brisbane Symphony Orchestra is a community orchestra of professional performance standard, based in the city of Brisbane, Queensland.  

Brief

Brisbane Symphony Orchestra came to us with two main requests: to redesign their very dated website and to implement eCommerce so that there was the capability for visitors to purchase tickets for upcoming concerts directly on the site. The integration of eCommerce would become a beneficial addition to the site by allowing easy ticketing and generating greater traffic to the site. Essentially, the organisation wanted an impressive and professional site that would stand out amongst its competitors. 

Solution

The site itself was in need of a thorough redesign.  We didn't take any elements from the existing website and decided to completely start from scratch, enabling us to fully control the creative direction of the design. We also designed the new site on Squarespace — an awesome platform that allows our clients to have full control of their site once it's up and running without relying on additional dev support. Establishing simple, yet clean layouts, using a selection of large, striking professional photographs and taking advantage of strong calls to action, the website now reflects professionalism and is visually exciting to visitors. The implementation of eCommerce is a great addition to the website and it certainly allows for a successful user experience, allowing visitors to learn more about the orchestra and purchase future concert tickets at the click of a button. 

Result

The new website has just been released and the organisation is extremely happy with their new look! They're excited to have the capability to advertise all of their future concerts on their website and can't wait to see how it improves ticket sales and orchestra membership. We look forward to hearing all about it and we are confident it will bring exciting new opportunities for the orchestra throughout 2018! View the new website here.
