It will determine how well you trust your agency with your idea, and in turn, how well they feel their expertise is appreciated and understood in the room.

Early this year, we launched a redesign of our website on Squarespace. After a few months, we had a handful of features we loved, but also a lot of roadblocks we were tired of maneuvering around.

And it’s not just the technology that appears at the festival (like jumbo screens and holograms of dead artists). It’s also how we connect to the festival, before and during the event, that completes the experience. From schedules, to buying tickets, this is a comparison of the online experience of a few well-known (and some unknown) festivals.

Earlier this year we helped our partners at Screaming Circuits launch a new web application using Ember.js as the client-side framework. In this project, we designed and implemented a more robust quoting engine and account service center, integrated support content into a helpful, organized resource center, and allowed for more engaging marketing content to tell the Screaming Circuit story. This post dives into the project’s needs, solution, challenges, and takeaways.
