The Brief

The National Circus Festival of Ireland (NCFI) presents, explores and exposes circus as a highly diverse, experimental, contemporary art form. The annual festival in Tralee is a mix of a 4-day circus, acrobatic and aerial convention mixed with a regular festival, so the public and sector mix together. They wanted a new website aligned with their brand, purpose & values. It needed to generate excitement, promote the festival and increase revenue through event bookings.

The Solution

I build a quirky bespoke WordPress website that allowed visitors to find and book shows easily and find relevant/useful information about circus in Ireland and NCFI quickly & easily.
