Leigh Tango presents tango news, classes and milongas in Leigh-on-Sea. Tango teachers, Samira and Luis, needed a useful website to list events, classes and showcase a portfolio of performances and dance experience.

The brief

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

Samira Ashraf
Portfolio website for a dance school.
Adults looking for a new social activity.
Find information and book a class.

Using the lovely deco style of the logo font and the tiny little dot detail I created clean elegant headings and layouts in a medium grey on white background with bright orange and yellow buttons and links. The effect perfectly presents the website's imagery. To bring all the images together I used overlays of texture and light with sepia and chocolate filters to invoke the feeling of leather, cigars, tango and a sort of passion that is immense but peaceful. Brand designer, Peter Benton created the logo. Note how the little dot is incorporated throughout the website design.

Samira Ashraf‘s thoughts on the website and working together with Follyfox Design:

Rita did a wonderful job on my website. She takes the time to fully understand the brief and suggested some great ideas to improve on the initial concept I had. Nothing is too much trouble for her and she was always on hand to answer questions and develop ideas and content when I needed it most!
