The Dandy Lion Cafe is a Cafe and Music Venue for outdoor festivals. Primarily based in the UK the Dandy Lion offers vegetarian food and entertainment services to festivals. The website needed to be a sleek, quick and clean responsive and mobile-friendly experience. I’ve found that speed is an important factor in festival website design. When appealing to festival organisers the site must load quickly as these people are always short on time!
I used a “Print Document” style layout to convey the information quickly and effectively letting the photographs speak for themselves. All extended functionality was removed from the site to make it as simple and as quick as possible. I also wanted to let the magnificent logo artwork speak for itself and it stands out well on such a clean layout.
As has become standard, the website does include a contact form and lightbox for images as well as a content management system. The images and style sheets are optimised to work efficiently across a range of devices with mobiles and tablets only loading what is necessary for their screen size.
