‘Hau5’ was created and conceived by Paul Somerville. Paul wanted to provide more than a night out – but an experience. Octopus Media were very excited to be working with one of the largest nights in the North East! We wanted to portray the personality and atmosphere of Hau5 through the website design and development.
The website (www.hau5.co.uk) was developed by the Octopus team written in ASP.NET, and uses a bespoke CMS. This software makes the website user friendly to manage for the Hau5 team, as well making it simple to update content on their site. The website incorporated carousel images, an integrated music player, automatically playing the latest mixes by each resident Hau5 DJ, and a real-time countdown timer on the holding page.
