August was commissioned to create the site for Artichoke following a successful collaboration in 2011. In November 2013 two bespoke LUMIERE festivals will light up the night once again. The events, taking place in Durham and Derry-Londonderry, will be the biggest of their kind anywhere in the UK.
The brief was to create a user-friendly site that would allow Artichoke to communicate the nature and scale of the event, and include news, tips and guidance. August built a site that incorporates photography and film with a dynamic and attractive home page that pulls content from all areas of the site. The flexibility of the design allows for different messages to be communicated at various times during the coming months.
Nicky Webb, Director, Artichoke said:
‘The site is beautiful - we are absolutely delighted with the results and we are confident that our audience will be, too.'
