Helping the government with a tight deadline
Buskinlondon.com is one of a number of sites we have built for the Greater London Authority. The Greater London Authority commissioned us to create a new website for promoting busking in London. The site provides information about and for the buskers: Locations, profiles, and advice about legality and responsibly. Venues are shown on a map created with Mapbox and Leaflet.js, (which we prefer to Google Maps where we need more visual control over the map).
In addition, the site also supports the annual Gigs competition. A competition for young buskers with the GLA in partnership with Transport for London providing a number of venues and event organisers. It gives young people to perform for thousands and be voted by a panel of industry experts and the public.
This was a great project for us because it was a challenge, and we love coming up with solutions. For Busk in London we devised design, information architecture and complex forms and did so very quickly in order to meet the Gigs’ deadline, without compromising any of the quality of service, but we achieved it!
