OUR CHALLENGE

10 Magical Years with Singapore Night Festival

A different theme each year with functions needed to facilitate the journey throughout the event

Singapore Night Festival is an annually held arts and culture event that lasts through 2 weekends, with theme performances and exhibitions that lasts throughout the night. Xtremax is tasked every year since 2015 to design the website with a different theme each year with functions needed to facilitate the journey throughout the event.

 

For year 2017 we have been tasked to design based to the theme “10 Magical Years”, with the aim to not only attracting the past years visitors, but also to engage with new audience and encourage them to make the most of the journey throughout Bras Basah Bugis.

 

The website needed to be designed primarily for mobile users as they needed to plan their trip through maps and a bookmark system for a more personalized event experience with an easier navigation system each year.

OUR REMEDIES

MyFav System and Map Customizations

Event Bookmarking and a Customized Map System introduced for event goers to better navigation via mobile

In order to make the user experience more engaging, we have devised as user login system by logging through facebook, in which users can use to bookmark their favorite events via MyFav Bookmarking System and also share their events with a customized image for their MyFavs on facebook to not only share their plans with SNF, but also help to promote the event further to a broader audience.  

 

The website also consists of a custom map system, which is Festival Map, to guide the users around the event and also a social media outreach in which users can tag their photos on their instagram and have it automatically populate the web page for all to see. Encouraging engagement and excitement with the web page visitors.
