Before & After: www.mirvish.com
If its not broken, don't fix it. But don’t be afraid to make it better! That was exactly the case when Mirvish Productions approached us about breathing new life into their website. According to a survey Mirvish staff conducted, site visitors liked the former mirvish.com website for the most part as it served their purposes well. The website programming, however, was outdated and from a design/brand perspective, it really needed a boost. Mouth Media was tasked with creating a custom backend Content Management System (CMS) AND with bringing their web presence in line with the amazing theatre productions they have been bringing to Toronto stages for the past several decades.
If you didn't see the site before (or forgot what it looked like), below are some before and after shots. I do love a good before and after blog design post.
Creating a custom design gave us the ability to meet all of Mirvish's functionality and design needs.
Check out mirvish.com to explore the shows they have on offer and get a preview of what your theatre experience will be. And when you do check out the site (now or when you next need theatre tickets in Toronto), be sure to watch for:
- Much much much more information than ever before about the shows from photo galleries to video clips. And best of all, the Content Management System lets site administrators update the content easily so that site content can change more often.
- Better transition between mirvish.com (show info) and ticketking.com (ticking buying).
- An interactive hotels and restaurant listing with theatre proximity search to help you complete your theatre going experience.
- An interactive location map where users can print their custom combination of area Theatres, Parking, Subway, Hotels and Attractions
- A TicketKing widget you can download for your desktop or share on your website, blog or facebook page.
- Searchable event calendar to help you find a show to match your availability.
- And more!
Stay tuned for the "View from Your Seat" system we are currently developing that will let you determine which seats are best based on what your view of the stage could be.
