Working together on the Piano. Push. Play. project, Megan contacted me to create a simple website for her music releases and projects to showcase. Using the logo as inspiration, we created photography with a focal color and kept everything very simple. She didn't want a lot showcased yet, but wanted a site created on Squarespace for ease of use. We had a weekend to come up with a concept, create the site and launch it within the week after. Generally working on such a tight deadline can create some interesting outcomes, but since we communicated our needs to each other so quickly, the site came together really well.
Simplicity is Key
Beginning work on Megan's site, we came together on a singular concept, simplicity is key in showcasing her music. First and foremost, she is a pianist and composer and she really wanted to emphasize this. Ultimately, we both decided that black and white images with a small splash of color (pink) was the direction to go. We came to the idea that the contrast of the simplistic site and the unchanged videos, her message would come through and be emphasized through use of spot color.
Spending a weekend putting together all the assets, we were able to launch the site the following Monday. Megan provided the images, I manipulated them to fit within her brand color scheme. We walked through connecting the domain and everything was set to be live by launch.
Finishing up + Results
Even with the quick turn around time, we were able to launch the site rather quickly. She was ultimately very pleased with the site and continues to advertise it alongside creating her music.
