Giving an epic motorsport brand a website worthy of its reputation
Salone Events is an events company working predominantly in the high-octane fuelled (pun-intended) world of motorsport. Offering a host of, as founder Bernadette would say, 'epic' motorsport events ranging from exclusive track days at some of the UK's most iconic motor circuits, to super-car road-trips across Europe, to high-end hospitality packages at some of the most prestigious race weekends in the Formula 1 calendar.

We’re always up for a challenge, but for this one we needed to draft in a little help. Up stepped the talented Sam Freeman, a Speccy design partner and owner of Penta Studio, to help us create a set of “modules” that could be used in various order to craft pages throughout the website.
From there, we used Sam’s design structure and style guide to finish up the designs for the event booking and admin pages, before diving into the build.
Speccy have gone above and beyond. The research they did was impressive and the initial designs blew me away. The efficiency in which the site was built and delivered was insane. Our website launched with no issues and we have had nothing but positive feedback.
Having recently gone through a brand re-fresh, we worked with Salone's new brand palette and added complimentary colours set against a dark background to really help the colours of the elements and imagery pop
