Dramatically Improved User Experience Through Full Site Redesign

“Our goal was to establish a modern marketing platform that’s on par with our world-class, award-winning venue architecture and to move the organization to an agile mindset that better matches the collaborative spirit of jazz.” – The Team, SFJAZZ

SFJAZZ mobile responsive

SFJAZZ is the world’s leading cultural institution devoted to jazz and related forms of music, presenting over 300 performances each year at the SFJAZZ Center and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

SFJAZZ was seeking a web design and development partner to complete a redesign and build out of a robust, mobile-centric new website. Strategic goals were established to include improved user experience and design that accurately reflects the SFJAZZ brand.

SFJAZZ engaged with Adage to establish a modern marketing platform that’s on par with its word-class, award-winning venue architecture and to move the organization to an agile mindset that better matches the collaborative spirit of jazz.

Brand Strategy

The project began with a discovery process called
Adage Align. Adage Align establishes a shared vision
among stakeholders across the organization. Marketing,
operations, technology, box office, and development all
took an active role in providing guidance and feedback. The
engagement resulted in SFJAZZ’s unified organizing idea
of OPEN (Welcome Everyone), CURATE (Strengthen Bonds),
and ENGAGE (Inspire).

We won a Communicator Award of Distinction for work with SFJAZZ.
