Event management can be a headache: thousands of attendees to communicate with alongside substantial operational overhead; plus any number of disasters just waiting to happen. So, when the creators of Festival App pitched us their idea for a user-centric app augmenting the festival experience through mobile ticket scanning, live notifications, GPS-location features and NFC technology - we were intrigued.
But with just 30 days to pull the Alpha version together, we also had to get our skates on to:
With just thirty days to build a working product, we hit the ground running. After a short design sprint, we planned the necessary features which we released in two phases. We worked closely with the client to pinpoint the UX and UI based on Material Design elements, ensuring every requested feature made the final cut.
Despite the time constraints, we delivered a standout app which has been well-received across the board. Event organizers appreciate the streamlined nature of the ticket scanning process, while attendees love the social elements we’ve introduced. The app’s debut was on 5th July - with a host of world-class festivals signed up to roll it out at their events as well.
