Red Eight really have been fantastic with myself and all of the team at Mark Summers. Their desire to produce consistently high-quality work for us has been nothing short of excellent. They have worked extensively with us throughout the development of the Mark Summers website, working with us to gather an understanding of exactly what we wanted. The site was tailored completely to our needs and Red Eight consistently added new features and functions that we wanted added or changed with no hesitation.
Whenever we have needed any graphic design work such as leaflets, letterheads and anything else, the team at Red Eight have consistently delivered high-quality designs that we love. They have also helped me with our web strategy working on things like our sites SEO and our look on our Social Media. Red Eight are fantastic and they are a key part of the Mark Summers family.
Mark Summers, Managing Director
Complete ground-up rebranding of the entire suite of Mark Summers including: logo design, stationery design, design of marketing materials, posters, street casting fliers and of course a beautiful and highly functional new website.
In terms of website functionality, it was paramount that we created a website that included all the features Mark Summers required, and that they all worked simply, effectively and were easy to maintain for the administrators of the site.
Over 3000 artists on the website database can create, edit and update their profile with their details, skills, videos and photos. The profiles can then be printed as one-page summaries for prospective directors to view at the casting. The ability for artists to update thier own information has saved hundreds of hours of manual input of artist information for the Mark Summers Team.
Casting of Artists requires the Client to send 'artist profile' via email in lightboxes to directors to pick the right person for the role. We created a robust and bespoke artist search featuring hundreds of different parametercombinations linked to a lightbox UI (adding artists to a emailable format) - allowing seamless submission of artists to casting directors. Each lightbox can be revisited, edited and resent saving many hours of time for the Mark Summers Team.
Bespoke administration areas created in the native Wordpress CMS system to allow the team to easily update the site, hero banners, news, artists - everything!
Dedicated news section that can be updated with recent events, casting calls and work - driving traffic to the site. The casting calls are linked to a scroll-bar which advertises the current calls linking to a twitter feed from the official twitter account of Mark Summers
Showreel area showcasing all of the work Mark Summers have done both past and present include videos, images and text.
Bespoke Blog designed in accordance to the type of content Mark Summers.

In what was an ambitious project, we worked alongside Mark Summers and ensured that they got the website their fantastic company needed and deserved.
