Underbelly run several live-entertainment festivals across the UK at different times of the year. The company experienced rapid growth with much of their revenue coming through online ticket sales, but ad hoc web design had created a disjointed user experience. Our goal was to increase online sales by delivering a better ticketing system and unifying the Underbelly brand across five festival websites.

Focusing on User Experience to drive revenue

Our focus on user experience for all devices has lead to a 16% rise in online ticket sales for Underbelly Edinburgh Fringe

Distinguishing corporate information from marketing

Creating a distinct and separate corporate site gave Underbelly more space to showcase their culture and ethos, attract new business, advertise career openings and sell merchandise. Our ongoing relationship ensures regular updates and improvements are always inline with Underbelly’s business goals.
