Enabled CSHF to connect with visitors Canada-wide through fully bilingual content
The heart and soul of the CSHF site is the inductee explorer—an interactive library of songwriters, songs and special contributors honoured by the organization. We took great care in designing the UX and UI to make searching and filtering as easy as possible, including through the use of predictive search.
The goal with ceremony pages was to take visitors on an immersive journey, so they can share in the excitement, laughs and heartfelt moments of the event. Each page includes event videos, a list of inductees with profile links, a list of artists who performed at the event, award recipients and related articles.
At launch, there were more than 50 songwriter profiles on the website. Each tells a very compelling and human story about the artist, and in many cases is accompanied by video from the artist’s induction ceremony. We prepared hundreds of images for the CSHF site, many of which appear in the songwriter profiles.
Every song inducted into CSHF also has its own page complete with an engaging story, a list of artists who’ve covered the song, a link to the songwriter page, supporting video and an audio clip courtesy of integration with Spotify. A pop-out menu gives users easy access to the more than 160 inducted songs in alphabetical order.
Redesigning CSHF was an exhausting but rewarding process that resulted in a work of pride for everyone involved. CSHF now has a website it can use to properly showcase Canada’s greatest songwriters and to promote future events. The content management system will make the site easy to update as new artists are honoured.
