The Marian Consort
As an internationally renowned music vocal ensemble, The Marian Consort have a back catalogue of critically-acclaimed album releases, numerous concert and radio appearances, and fans all over the world. Now they needed an updated website that reflected their position in the music industry.
The Marian Consort have achieved worldwide success with their unique vocal interpretations of classical and opera music. Having 8 albums to their name, regular sold out concerts, frequent radio appearances, and acclaim from all sides, the need for an updated website was made a priority.
Though their previous site worked for them, the time was right for an overall site refresh, adding in some new functionality, and a smoother, slicker finish to bring them bang up to date.
To get The Marian Consort where they needed to be, the Priority Pixels team built a new site, giving special attention to these areas:
- Website design and development
A site-wide refresh with simple navigation and smooth user experience, while being responsive for smartphones and tablets.
- Ecommerce functionality
To allow safe and secure purchasing of products through the website without using any third party payment gateways
- Sound and video clips
To incorporate both audio and video clips onto the home page to give visitors an opportunity to preview content
Building the website from the ground up, our web designers used WordPress to create a new and responsive site. Giving a good user experience is crucial, so to help that we added more functionality throughout, including an updated and easy to use Concerts section, and audio and video preview clips to the home page.
We also developed the ecommerce side of the site as well. On their previous site, visitors were taken to a third party payment page when they bought merchandise. By adding a new SSL certificate to the site, we used Woocommerce to set up a safe and secure payment gateway, keeping users on site.
The client also asked for access to the admin area so they could update specific page information. So using Advanced Custom Fields, our team were able to create a bespoke theme, letting them do quick, easy, and secure updates themselves.
