Event landing page: a case study (Lappin180)

Our neighbors, Lappin180, came to us a few months ago with a new project. This was our first website project with Lappin180 although we have been assisting with other marketing needs since 2015. Their main website was created by another vendor a few years ago and has outdated content and style. For this important event, they wanted an upgraded and impressive page that better represented their brand.
