Arts, Culture and Leisure
We work alongside organisations and businesses in the arts, culture, and leisure sector by, above all, understanding their needs and providing digital solutions that generate bookings, get patrons in seats, and increase their digital presence.
Making your brand stand out among the crowd in an increasingly digital world is a big challenge for businesses in the arts, culture, and leisure sector. Recent events have shown that having a strong digital presence is an absolute necessity in surviving as a business.
Digital needs in the arts, culture, and leisure sector
Businesses in the arts, culture, and leisure sectors require websites that present visually engaging content encouraging people to come and visit to join in the experience – and we love building them!
Organisations such as theatres and museums alongside businesses like restaurants all share the need for clear and accessible information displayed on their websites to help keep their visitors and guests in the loop.
As integration specialists, we can seamlessly incorporate a wide range of booking systems into a new site – your users will never know they’ve moved to a different platform.
And our approach to web development means we deliver bespoke, future-proof sites that are highly secure and easy to update with new content on a daily basis. They look great across all devices, too.
- Integration with secure payment processing and booking systems.
- Merchandise shops, restaurant bookings, online orders, and show listings.
- Content management systems that allow for easy site updates.
- Accessibility considerations conforming to AA standards.
- Venue hire, sponsorship, and donation functionality.
- Multimedia capabilities for image galleries, media, and downloads.
- Consistent and engaging messages across social media.
- Engaging branding and imagery to capture the experience of being there.
- Programmes, brochures, menus.
- Comprehensive visitor and event
We’ve done a lot of work for clients across the arts, culture, and leisure sector since Splitpixel started in 2008, delivering bespoke websites and digital marketing plans that showcase them in the best possible way to attract an audience. Take a look at some of the exceptional work we’ve done in our portfolio.
ThickSkin is an exciting theatre production company focusing on creating innovative performances for representative audiences. We helped them make the leap from Wix to WordPress with a bespoke CMS-driven website that allows them to quickly build new pages with ease.
The site incorporates multimedia content in a variety of ways, using video page headers, Spotify playlists, image galleries, performance trailers and a simple ecommerce shop throughout to create a bright, bold site that jumps out of the screen.
We’ve been managing the digital marketing for this award-winning, family-run, Bradford-based Indian restaurant since 2019 and have helped them weather the storm of the pandemic which really hit the hospitality sector.
For Prashad we’ve produced video marketing as well as arranged photoshoots to showcase their wonderful staff and mouth-watering food. We also plan their social media content and pay-per-click search and social media advertising, harnessing our high-quality video and photo content.
We have been working with the largest regional theatre in the UK for many years. The latest Leeds Playhouse website features a comprehensive performance calendar, complete with date and genre filtering, and an archive of every past show.
Seamless integration with Spektrix allows for secure booking without leaving the site, and a customer login for repeat purchases. Finally, extensive content on the theatre’s community outreach, artistic development and playhouse redevelopment plans is presented in an engaging, bold and colourful way.
Sunny Bank Mills
We created a dynamic new WordPress site for Sunny Bank Mills, a business, arts, and heritage space that includes an online gallery shop to sell beautifully stylish jewellery, ceramics, textiles, books, accessories, art prints, and other handmade crafts designed by local independent artists.
While the site is not built-in ecommerce software, it provides a gateway to the mill’s full retail experience, with multiple opportunities to enquire about buying art through the site.
The Lawrence Batley Theatre
The LBT has been a Huddersfield institution since 1994. We undertook a complete digital rebrand and redesign, creating a calendar that is much easier to navigate, integrating with the theatre’s booking system, and placing a much stronger focus on community engagement.
The site is incredibly easy for the team to update with new shows, content and pages, providing plenty of scope for future growth.
We were so excited to take on this project with Colchester's artistic powerhouse - Mercury Theatre.
We helped bring their new branding to life and give them a kick start with a fresh new website.
We love working with community-based organisations like HOME Slough. They work within the local community to support artists and help get the people of Slough involved in creative projects.
We designed them a fantastic new website with a sophisticated events system, allowing them to schedule their creative projects with ease.
