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.
Full screen background imagery fills every page with the magic and mystery of this wonderful castle 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 way.

In keeping with the Garúa Milonguero brand’s look ‘n feel we established a series of facebook banners using the main website background image. To keep things fresh the image, overlay colour and text can easily be changed for each event.
This pretty logo is a representation of the traditional Irish Claddagh ring. The ring dates as far back as 1700 and originates from Galway on the west coast of Ireland. As tango is about the embrace the idea of this ring represents beautifully the Garúa Milonguero ethos. With a 3D metallic effect the logo is designed to overlay on dark backgrounds.
