Located in coastal Brighton, the Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival is the largest festival of its kind in the south of England. It’s a showcase for fantastic food and drink with local producers, growers, restaurants, bars, and food retailers at its heart. See the website ›
The site for the Brighton & Hove Food and Drink Festival uses a popular method to show off photos: a gallery slide show, complete with captions, a counter, and links to the previous and next photos.
To build a gallery slide show with Adobe® Muse™ software, simply drag a slide show widget onto the canvas and customize its size, colors, and controls as much as you wish. Have more than just photos to showcase? Adobe Muse has similar widgets for other types of content, so you can use the same approach for text, shapes, embedded HTML objects, and more.
The Brighton & Hove Food and Drink festival makes use of different colors, sizes, and weights of a single typeface to build a typographic hierarchy within the site design. A content-rich site like this one requires some variety in its typography so visitors can easily identify what they want to read.
Character and paragraph styles in Adobe Muse make it easy to create and edit levels of typographic hierarchy. Use a distinct set of styles to maintain a balance of consistency and variety, from headings to paragraphs to navigation.
The Brighton Food Festival news page includes a live Twitter feed for its @brightonfood account. To add a Twitter widget to an Adobe Muse site, just copy the embed custom code generated through Twitter's widget resources page. When the Twitter widget code is ready, select Object > Insert HTML in Adobe Muse and paste the embed code into the dialog box to add the widget.
The Brighton Food Festival site includes a horizontal main navigation menu at the top of every page. Many pages also include a secondary level of navigation on the left side. Multiple layers of navigation can be an invaluable asset for a content-heavy site, providing a way for visitors to browse a site quickly without sifting through page content.
An Adobe Muse menu widget can dynamically or manually generate a navigation menu. Or a simple list of links can serve as navigation, such as what you see on the Brighton Food Festival directory page.
