Off the Shelf

Held in Sheffield, Off the Shelf is one of the UK's largest literary festivals. Each year, household names from the literature and media worlds are drawn to the celebration. Including over 200 events for people of all the ages, the 2015 edition began in September. To coincide with its launch, our team designed and built Off the Shelf a new website. As a fellow local operation, we were delighted to be able to help them.

The key focus for us was to produce an accessible new online home for the festival - which had previously been integrated with the Welcome to Sheffield website. You can make your own mind up as to how successful you think we were, but we were delighted with the final results. With each event clearly displayed and a simple-to-use booking system included, the 2015 event was a real success.
