Case studies: St David's Hall

Website design and content management for the national concert hall of Wales.

We have enjoyed a long relationship with St David's Hall which stretches back almost a decade to when we produced their first standalone website. Since then we've been lucky enough to work with the team at the Hall on emarketing and on the redevelopment and redesign of their website.

What we did

For the redesign we took the website back to basics and looked at how the Hall were using the site. What worked well and not so well about the old site? What could we do better? What information was missing from the site? How did their content management system work for them? What did they wish they could do with their site? How did their visitors use the site?

We proposed a data structure for the dynamic pages. We presented visual concepts. We suggested interesting ways to present the events - in a scrolling pane or as crossfading banners. And we went back to the drawing-board once or twice.

As for all StageManager clients, we delivered a CMS optimised specifically for the Hall, with data entry options streamlined to the requirements of their seasons and events. We introduced video playback, image galleries, event recommendations, an interactive calendar feature, event-linked banner rotation and more.

We also produced a suite of email templates which the Hall use to market their events through our MailManager email marketing tool - and we're currently working with the team on a number of exciting digital projects for 2011 and beyond.

What the client said

In all the years we have been with you, you have been a joy to work with. Your response times are fabulous, your constant suggestions keep us up to date and you are always happy to help with our ever-growing wishlist, all at a price which we can afford. In my experience you are the best there is.
