South Bend River Lights Website Revamp

River Lights Header

The client for this project needed a number of updates done to the South Bend River Lights website in advance of its public launch. At the time, there was very little written or visual content on the site, and the site structure needed to be reorganized.

Visual content needing to be done included:

  • Design a logo
  • Develop a video
  • Design a new header image
  • Update carousel images on the Home page
  • Add SB150 image and logo to the Home Page
  • Build an interactive timeline on the Story page
  • Design images for Timeline on the Story page
  • Add concept images to the Design page

The client also needed written content for the following pages:

  • Story
  • Design
  • Artist
  • Support

Kylie Carter from Downtown South Bend played a key role. She was responsible for coordinating the project and developing some of the written content. She also did some photography and provided most of the existing resources to be used in the project, including concept images.

The concept images were developed by Rob Shakespeare and Shakespeare Lighting Design. Josh from Monkeyhouse Marketing & Design helped us overcome several key obstacles on the back end of the website.

The bulk of the work was completed in my spare time over the course of three days. Edits, adjustments, and meetings added a few extra hours over another three days before the project was finalized.

Screenshots of the finished site are below.
