Rush Theatre Company

A theatre company based in Birmingham that offers Educational Plays and various Shows

We were approached by the Rush Theatre Company in regards to re designing their website for them and make it more engaging for users. They complained of not having any site engagement from users or anyone contacting them through their website.

From the very beginning, it was clear that the Rush Theatre Companies website had no call to actions and was simply dormant and uninviting. Our initial meetings with the company’s team allowed us to gain more insight into their vision, goals, and target audience, which laid the foundation for our design approach.

key features and functionality

 
  1. Tours & Shows designed a dedicated page to showcase the company’s repertoire of productions. This approach allowed visitors to explore and engage with each production, fostering anticipation and encouraging ticket sales.
  2. Tickets & Sales: We incorporated and collaborated with other theatre companies showcasing all of rush theatres shows within the tour section of the website allowing customers to buy tickets directly from the theatre itself. This cut alot of issues that may arise with ticket sales.
  3. Subscription Function: Incorporated a subscription form for users to receive news and updates on upcoming events and potential deals. This feature will also act as a measurement tool measuring how many users engage with the company via subscriptions.
  4. Analytics Tool Integration: We embedded into the site a tool that will be able to measure the sites user data. This way the company can oversee how a user interacts with their website, the amount of traffic gained, where the traffic is coming from and to also keep an eye on their conversions and sales.

Re - Designing The Rush Magazine

To capture the essence of Rush Theatre Company’s dynamic performances, we changed the layout of their old programme magazine and modernised it giving it a more updated modern look as opposed to its old outdated style.

The Problem

We had only 48 hours to complete the magazine and so we went ahead and sent out the original magazine to a few individuals conducting a usability study focusing on the design elements of the magazine.

Our 48 hours had finished. In the short time we had, everyone was happy with the end result! This is our finished product.

Poster Design

After the success of our magazine re design, Rush Theatre Company asked us to design a poster for one of their upcoming shows.

The poster design had to be inline with the theatres ethos ensuring an eccentric 70s design to which their show ‘ A Brother With Soul’ focused on.
