Wild Woods Music and Arts Festival is a three day music and arts festival. This unique event is located on beautiful Page Farm in Croydon, New Hampshire. The venue features a magnificent spread of almost 70 acres of beautiful farmland and wooded areas, nestled in the Sunapee mountain range ( facebook about ).
After the first years success Wild Woods was looking to improve their existing free template to better handle the growth of upcoming years. After a few meetings we had established what they were hoping to do with their website and I was designing the first iteration.
It was amazing project to work on as Ryan and the team proved to be amazingly quick to pickup new functionality and were kind enough to give me creative control over the project.
After iterating on multiple different slideshow configurations I ended up scrapping the entire header and instead going with a multi-layer parallax effect. In order to protect our page-load times the layers take advantage of the element each consisting of multiple optimized srcsets.
The theme includes multiple custom shortcodes, ticket integration and post types created specifically to simplify administration and upkeep of the site going forward.
