A “save the date” is a placeholder to help promote an event with the intention of giving the necessary information before a full website is completed. While this is temporary, the addition of interactivity makes the event exciting and memorable.
The Lights is an event of igniting sky lanterns.
The best moment of the event is when all the lanterns have been lighted and flying through the night sky. To capture that picturesque moment as a promotional interactive piece was to focus on the act of physically doing and seeing, as well as the atmosphere it created.
Keeping the same aesthetics as the promotional placeholder, the website is created to give the user more information on the event and to also give the ambiance of being at the event. Much of the website design plays on the importance of information, four main sections.
