Folk-Ukraine: Unique audio library of Ukrainian folk songs
  • About the project

    In the modern world full of innovations and progressive technologies, more and more attention is paid to the history of each nation: its traditions and cultural heritage. The Folk-Ukraine resource corresponds to this tendency in the best way possible; the idea of the website is to create a collection of Ukrainian folk songs. The project's uniqueness lies in the fact that the pieces are not professionally recorded but by the people who collect and preserve them.

  • Challenge

    The client contacted Perfsol on the recommendation of the founder of the company; we had previously made a design update of their web resource. Then the cooperation was a success; after the work was done, the company was able to significantly increase the conversion rate of the website and expand its audience.

    The idea was to create a service that could host Ukrainian folk songs collected in different regions of the country. Among the customer's main wishes was a unique design that would fully correspond to the national stylistics and color and at the same time include modern elements.

    Other website requirements include:

    • Intuitive interface. Users should be able not only to listen to the added songs but also to manage the content themselves.
    • Clear website structure. The songs should be divided into sections for an easy search, and there should be a convenient search bar and the ability to filter the desired content.
    • Engaging design. When users visit the site, they should be fully immersed in the world of Ukrainian culture thanks to the national motifs, interactive elements, and colorful animation.

    To understand the client's vision as correctly as possible, the Perfsol team initiated regular joint meetings. We discussed the functionality of the site that we needed to implement, the design features, and the optimal tech stack. This helped us create a web resource that best meets the client's requirements and the target audience's expectations.

    The main challenges of this project:

    • add animations that should take up the entire page;
    • create an adaptive design so that the site displays equally well on any screen, from smartphones to 4K monitors.
  • Business Case

    A team of three people was involved in the project: a backend developer, a frontend developer, and a designer. Their experience in working on such tasks made it possible to perform the work quickly and with high quality; the client received the finished site in three months, which surpassed all their expectations. The customer noted the accuracy of the implementation of their idea, the high performance of the resource, and a logical, clear user interface.

    To bring the idea to life, we used:

    • For the frontend: Next.js and Styled Components. With these tools, we could implement the client's wishes for colorful animation and interactive elements.
    • For the backend: Strapi. We quickly created a user-friendly admin panel where the client can add and edit content.

  • Solution

    As a result of cooperation with Perfsol, the client received:

    • A web resource with an adaptive design. This allowed us to attract the maximum number of users, as the site displays equally well on any device.
    • A site that displays the cultural characteristics of the Ukrainian people and simultaneously contains modern elements.
    • Interactive components and animations for maximum user engagement.
    • Convenient admin panel for content management.
    • A clear web resource structure that provides a breakdown of songs by sections (regions, genres, songs), easy search, and filtering.

    The project caused a commotion in the Ukrainian and foreign media, resulting in a significant increase in user interest. The client was satisfied with the collaboration and plans to engage the Perfsol team to expand the site's functionality.
