Club Snafu Case Study
Aberdeen nightclub Snafu needed a re-design to coincide with a refurbishment of their venue, and also required full control of the content they like to show on their website. The brief included managing a regularly changing “what’s on” section, a very popular photo gallery and just for good measure, an mp3 player for their users…oh, and an online shop would be perfect too… and a secondary site to deal with our magazine too please. Enter East Coast Interactive, stage left.
5 out of 5, East Coast Interactive have been extremely patient with my lack of knowledge on the web front, and more than helped me through each and every stage of development. They have exceeded my expectations. The continued support is prompt, and more importantly, invaluable to someone who struggles with the most basic of procedures. They worked closely to the brief, and needless to say I am delighted with the result. They created websites which are very easy for me to update and we have had nothing but positive comments from all our customers. Thank you East Coast…you virtually saved my life!
Working very closely with Snafu, we took their design ideas and considerations and through a couple of meetings we listened, advised and nailed down exactly what it was that would make Snafu happy before getting to work. We took a content management system that hit several of their targets, plugged in and edited some extra modules and developed a whole new front end for it. We then went on to develop one or two bespoke additions to complete the functionality list. To run in parallel with the main Snafu website, we “got our Flash on” and built a site specifically for the Snafu Magazine that could incorporate content created for their printed output, and display it in an attractive and interactive fashion.
This job had the works, content management, photo gallery, e-commerce, custom flash development, event management and custom theme development. It let us get our hands dirty with a lot of the things that excite us and the ease of working with Snafu was the icing on the cake. The resulting websites were built from scratch, on time and on budget.
