Garua Milonguero Ireland

Garua Milonguero is a private Argentine Tango event website that showcases the historical Charleville Castle just outside Tullamore, Ireland. Dancers can quickly find news, information and register online.

The brief

During the initial planning and research stage of the project we established the following:

Owner
Anthony Cronin
Challenge
To create a front-end registration management tool that allows the Garúa team to receive and process registrations end to end. Registration all the way to payment must be secure and doesn't require users to create accounts.
Style
Event website with online registration.
Audience
Tango enthusiasts.
Action
Register online.

Design

Full screen background imagery fills every page with the magic and mystery of the wonderful historical venues while various sliders, popups and hover effects create a fun and interactive user experience. I love the earthy colours and tried to bring a feeling of hidden corridors, shadows and depth to each page by using transparent overlays. A big fat heading font sign posts the readers way around the site.

Function

The registration page is password protected so only invited guests who have been given the password can view the site if the event status is marked as open. The event team have full control of when guests can register. Information is presented dynamically on every page to help users find related information. Guests can subscribe to the newsletter to automatically receive new blog articles as they are posted. Functions include:
