Our HOMEPAGE featured an image-driven, automatic event/news slideshow plus highlighted a full-size Facebook blog feed. As seen above, all social networking links as well as site credits and sponsor logos were conveniently stored within a 'magnetic' radio player bar. A semi-opaque info drawer expanded/retracted upon mouse activation, revealing sponsor logos and links.

LINE-UP (2) was also accessible BY DATE (2a). This page was designed with large, bold photos so that whether SIDESHOWS was able to secure 3 artists or 300 artists, this particular area would always feel robust. The blue "+" buttons took visitors to individual artist pages. (*Had our artist roster grown to estimable numbers, a calendar field would also have been implemented.)

LINE-UP (2) ||| TALENT A TO Z (2b pre-mouseover) contained one of my favorite features — a cursor-activated spotlight. If a visitor positioned one's cursor over any artist image, non-essential screen areas darkened and one's cursor disappeared, revealing a spotlight. Users could easily surf through alphabetized SIDESHOWS music and circus artists in this sub-section.

LINE-UP (2) ||| TALENT A TO Z (2b) ||| Devotchka…After a trip through our alphabetized artist image gallery, users could click on individual artists to reveal unique info pages. This sample represents our opening night headliner, Devotchka. (*Those unfamiliar with the band may recognize it's song "Till the End of Time", which was used prominently in the film "Little Miss Sunshine".) Artist pages featured a bio, song sound bite button (which automatically silenced the browser bottom SIDETRACKS volume, if on), performance details, a member roster (if applicable), pertinent links and videos.

FAQ (4) contained many a sub-navigational category (ABOUT SIDESHOWS 7a seen here). Each of which was easily accessed via the tabs seen to the right, or via one central scroll. The central content area contained a google map, images, videos and hyperlinks galore. Clicking on a sub-nav tab automatically animated the given category to the top of the central info area. A "Top" CTA, which moved upward as browser screens became smaller, also made it easy to begin reading the FAQ section from the beginning, if wished.

THE HOOD (5) was designed as a nouveau 'classifieds'. My original plan was to solicit area businesses to advertise pertinent area services à la yelp to supplement sponsorship income, while simultaneously helping performance-attenders navigate the Lincoln Center area. Category tabs made browsing THE HOOD even easier. TREATS (6) housed our VIDEO GALLERY (6a) and PHOTO GALLERY (6b), SIDESHOWS podcasts entitled SIDECASTS (6d) plus sponsored GIVEAWAYS (6c) and other promotional freebies.
