BBC Connect

Service design // D&AD New Blood Pencil Winner 2017

Every year, thousands flock to Scotland’s capital to experience the Edinburgh Festivals. Although highlights of the festivals are available for those who can’t attend, they don’t quite capture the same experience as that if you were actually there.

BBC Connect is a new platform that puts visitors of the festival at the heart of an online community, where they can help shape and create new experiences of the festivals for a wider audience. The BBC Connect app allows visitors of the festival to become the ultimate guide to sharing the best that the festivals have to offer.
