UniSA birthday festival: Event page design

This single page site was created as a marketing asset to promote University of South Australia’s 25th birthday festival. The page design was required to stylistically fit with existing printed promotional material rather than standard corporate identity. This presented some new challenges conquered with a novel solution (documented here in a short article on SVG images.)Responsive design was a must with students being a key target audience. Content rearrangement was achieved with Packery plugin.

UniSA’s 25th Birthday Festival

It’s time to celebrate! Join us for a night filled with food, wine, art, film, culture and more.

To celebrate UniSA’s 25th birthday, you are invited to attend our 25th Birthday Festival. What a birthday year it’s been so far – from campus birthday parties and the fundraising gala to offshore and interstate alumni events. This is your chance to send off the birthday year with a bang.

Come along and enjoy the festivities with live music, street performers, food vendors, a pop up bar, outdoor cinema, art market and art exhibitions.
