How WRD Festival started their wordpress theme design journey
Who are you known as?
Blackstone Valley Music & Arts Festival
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
The poster says it all....want to create a fun, marketable website that the radio stations and all other media can use to promote the event. We are targeting all ages...with a carnival in one field, live music all weekend in the other field. There is a beer garden, there is carnival, there is a BBQ Cookoff, so this will be a huge festival offering something for everyone. So the website needs to appeal all ages. Again, use the Poster as a guide and make the website pop so it's attractive, website makes you want to attend!
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Entertainment & The Arts
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the WordPress theme?
Like the poster that was created, want to take that poster and turn it into a magical, innovative website that is going to create interest and attendance. It's our first year, so we don't have real-life images to use. So my thought was use the poster as a guide, graphical design to building a website.
I do like the home page to pop and be a scrolling website so we can list our the main features of the festival; Music, Fiesta Carnival, BBQ Cookoff, Arts Village, & Buy Local Vendors
What to avoid
Carry the theme of the home page, make it colorful and fun, yet simple to navigate and read.
Blackstone Valley Music & Arts Festival is hosted by the Woonsocket Rotary Days and need to incorporate there Logo somehere, does not have to be large and do not want to take away from the Music Festival logo. Note a huge fan of the logo, so again, I don't want the logo to interfere with the home page design. If not on the home page, I can locate the logo in the "Info landing Page" by opening up a paragraph "about the event and it's host". Woonsocket Rotary Days is a community driven organization, raising money and giving back to the community. Woonsocket Rotary Days is a series of Events hosted by the Woonsocket Rotary Club, that is part of Rotary International. Again, I don't need to build a website for them, they have have there own website and marketing initiatives. This Music & Arts Festival is what we need to market and sell!
Love the them of the poster.
Note that the location of the event is in a a large field surround with beautiful trees, landscapes, and small pond. Not saying you have to use any of that, but in case you look for additional graphics to help with design.
