The Company

Apps4Arts is the brainchild of award-winning designer and entrepreneur Victoria Forrest. Working for arts festivals through her graphic design company Design by Victoria, she identified an opportunity to turn a once paper-driven medium of festival programming and information into a smartphone app with numerous benefit to the organisers.

Using her eye for detail, Victoria has developed an online platform which gives small to medium-sized festivals the ability to create their very own smartphone guide at the fraction of the cost of employing an agency, whilst keeping the look and feel of their branding on a clean and stylish template.

Apps4Arts aims to provide grassroots arts organisations access to technology, enabling them to effectively distribute their content and use back-end statistics to gain a wealth of visitor information that was previously unattainable.
