WFEA 2018 App Submission
Chocolate on the Beach Festival
2018 Mobile App
Here are some images and descriptions of our Mobile App, built by Owen Marketing GROUP. Submitting our 2018 Mobile App is a little bit of a challenge since we already had our 2019 Festival and had already updated the Mobile App for the 2019 Season. Bruce Skinner said that because of this we could submit screenshots of the Mobile App for judging. You can also download the current version of our Mobile App from iTunes or the Google Play store, just search for Chocolate on the Beach Festival.
Our theme for the 2018 Chocolate on the Beach Festival was Saved By Chocolate!!!, a Superhero theme. Note the use of primary colors.
Our Unique Opportunities
Chocolate on the Beach Festival is a 4-day Festival spanning 13 Miles through 5 communities on the rural Washington coast. Being in unincorporated Grays Harbor County, we do not have any venues large enough to house the whole event. Because our festival goers have to drive from one venue to another, we took this opportunity to encourage them to go into our local businesses and bolster our economy.
Our Mobile App design began with an appropriate icon to depict our Festival. We thought this Chocolate Square worked nicely.
This is our Loading Screen, keeping with our Superheroes Theme for 2018.
For the Home Screen of the App, we decided to use Superhero icons for our navigation.
For our general App navigation on sub-pages, we used our Superhero from the 2018 Festival logo. This is our Calendar of Events.
The goal of our Festival is to support our local communities. We do this through grants and encouraging our Festival-goers to make purchases at participating businesses. This is the sub-page for our People’s Choice. Festival-goers can go to local restaurants, bars, and espresso stands to purchase their competing items and vote for their favorite. The Festival-goers must purchase from 3 different businesses in any sub-category in order for their vote to count. When the user selects any one of the categories they see a list of the participating businesses with Festival Partners being at the top of the list and highlighted. When the user selects a specific business they see a list of items that the business is competing with as well as a “Tap to Navigate” button which will open up the map and navigation on the user’s device.
Of course, it is also very important for us to keep our Festival Partners happy!
