Illuminate Adelaide

Delivering a functional user-centric website that supports Australia’s newest major winter events program.


Now in its second year, Illuminate Adelaide is a new major events program celebrating art, light, music and technology. Every winter, for two weeks and three weekends, Illuminate Adelaide lights up the city with a program of free and ticketed events.

Following their 2021 launch, Illuminate Adelaide approached Bravo with clear goals - improving the functionality of their website and the usability of their CMS.

Our mobile-responsive solution for Illuminate Adelaide uses Bravo’s own templated website solution, Eventful. Built on Umbraco CMS, Eventful provides the framework for an affordable, functional website with a proven user experience.
