The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration

Web Design & Development

The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration was one of two official events taking place in 2016 to mark Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday. The event was a celebration of The Queen’s life, her love of horses, her dedication to the Commonwealth and international affairs and her deep involvement with the Navy, Army and Air Force. Over 90 minutes, 900 horses and more than 1,500 participants from around the world created a joyful event for The Queen.

Launch Year: 2015

Client: HPower Group (Crafted @ Red Giant)


The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration

There’s no greater honour for a (fresh) British citizen than creating the The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration website! At least for me it isn’t. It’s pretty impressive to know the website has been accessed by almost 2 million people from around the globe and my lines of code helped the whole world get to one place, Windsor Castle, and celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday.

The palace-approved colour palette became an integral part of the event’s identity used on all the supporting marketing collateral. The website gracefully combined traditional elements like the logo, the subtle royal cream colour and the lovely drawings with modern trends like the vertical sliding menu, full-screen slideshow, CSS3 animations, sliding carousel, events timeline, image venue map with hotspots, count down timer, animated info circle or tabbed content.

Oh, and did I mention The Queen’s 90th Birthday Celebration was awarded the BAFTA for Best Live Event in 2017?! That’s BIG!
