Directors UK

Directors UK is the professional association for British directors working in the audiovisual sector, with over 4,500 members. The organisation is both a collective management organisation for the distribution of secondary rights payments to directors, and the campaigning body seeking to protect and enhance the creative, economic and contractual rights of directors in the UK.

We built a custom application using Ruby on Rails for Directors UK to showcase their content. It included an event planning module to allow directors attend specialist events, a CMS for news items and tutorials and an employer review module for directors to rate production companies.

We were lucky enough to have free reign on specifying a typeface framework for the site. We chose the now ubiquitous LL Circular from Lineto foundry, paired with the highly readable serif: Freight Text.

Substrakt are a pleasure to work with. A talented and professional bunch who really made the effort to understand our organisation and our users’ needs and turn that into something beautiful and completely appropriate.

Since launching the new site we have received great feedback from our members (who have notoriously high standards) and we are looking forward to working with Substrakt on future projects.
