In 2015, as a proud supporters of the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of West Island for over 10 years, the team at Awaken Solutions was proud to build the new website for annual Montreal Rib Fest.

Responsive design

To ensure maximum visibility and accessibility, a fully-responsive design was built to ensure usability on mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones.

Interactive forms

Potential vendors, sponsors and volunteers had access to five comprehensive and interactive forms which guided them through a series of questions. The bilingual forms included conditional logic to load new questions based on the responses provided, as well as messaging logic to send submissions to the appropriate staff (as well as a confirmation to the submitter).

Graphic design

Awaken Solutions designed the new logo for Montreal Rib Fest, including the sponsor colours, Montreal skyline and other features based on interviews with the client.

Social integration

Deep social integration was included throughout the website, including Facebook and Twitter widgets that allowed staff and guests to interact easily.

Google Maps integration

An embedded Google Map with pre-populated address and directions allowed users on desktop or mobile devices to easily get directions to the event and parking guidelines.


We couldn't be happier with the website that Awaken Solutions built for the Montreal Rib Fest. They answered all of our questions, took the time to make sure everything was clear and delivered everything on time. The results are beyond any of our expectations. It was a great experience all in all and we recommend Awaken Solutions 100%.
