Events Directory Website

A custom built Events Directory Website was developed by our team for Events Combined to give businesses a platform to advertise their venues and services. This project involved the graphic design of the client’s branding and the development of a custom built website.

Giving life to your website ideas

A website is not just about what is seen but the functionality which is built to make the user journey seamless. Events Combined emailed us with ideas, goals and timeframes and working together we now have a fully functioning custom Events Directory Website, using a WordPress Directory Theme built from scratch. WordPress as the Content Management System (CMS) was used due to its flexibility in development.

Design phase

From the shapes of clickable buttons to the way businesses list their services within their personal account is just a ‘slice’ of what we took into consideration when designing this Events Directory Website.  The initial design phase is where we document the site map/plan and specific requirements. We then structure the site so that there is a clear understanding of the user journey for each part of the website. During this process we design the use of colours and overall atmosphere of the website. Events Combined takes on a minimal and modern feel with stone brand colouring with images inspired by celebration, that have subtle filters to brighten and enhance. All decisions are made to align with the initial brief and ultimate client goals.

Intelligent development

The Events Directory Website is an intelligent program with subscription levels and integration with Paypal. Depending on the subscription level of an event or service listing the hierarchy of appearance gives the business opportunities to be reached before others. Each level gives the user access to different features such as multiple image selection, business collateral promos, featured listing positioning and enquiry forms. The simple Paypal integration makes ‘boosting’ posts simple and check boxes make selecting free or paid subscriptions easy.

Advanced Map and Search Filter

Our development of an advanced map filter allows the public to filter down to their Location, Event Type and Service. It’s simple to see where each is located and also what is available across states. Built inhouse, the filter is unique to Eventscombined.com.au

Intelligent Hierarchy of free to paid listings – featured listings – each level giving the user access to different features

Mobile and Tablet Website

Eventscombined.com.au has been developed as a responsive website. A responsive website allows customers access to the listing or searching events via their mobile or tablet device. A responsive website is important so that the website’s information is accessible to the increasing number of mobile and tablet users.
