War on Want: Evolution of Struggle

War On Want approached us to create a microsite for a series of events they organised to celebrate and commemorate the history of anti-apartheid protests. The site needed to be easy to navigate and simple to update, with events planned well into the following year.

Strong imagery

We began by creating a brand and visual style for the programme, and designed posters for the four initial events. Strong imagery was used to evoke the struggles of the time, and we used a unique illustration style to tie the event imagery together.

Interactive website

From here we created the website. Based around elements of the poster – we implemented a torn paper effect for borders and used the background textures throughout the site – the overarching brand style was established consistently.

Integrated CMS

As well as events, WoW can add blog and news articles to support the promotion of the campaign and create search engine traction. A simple to use content management system based on WordPress makes it easy for multiple members of the team to keep things updated.

Booking functionality

The site was designed with further promotion in mind – each event poster can be downloaded in full resolution for printing and distribution, and the booking functionality links seamlessly with the main War On Want website.
