Manchester Pride 2007 site goes live

After a complete branding revamp, idaho technology were asked to look at the 2007 site for the Manchester Pride Festival. Having worked on the site for several years we instantly knew the kind of approach they would be after and set about creating a neon-on-black look. This was a nice change for me as it is actually the first black background site I've designed. The neon colours are effective against the background and the tile grid structure works well.

The site is completely content managed - even down to the text link over the big star image which uses a .png gradient overlay on top to ensure the text is readable over any image or graphic they might add.

Design of the site was developed in conjunction with Stuart Newton (Director / Developer of idaho technology).
