The design needed to match the design of the mothership while giving it a bit more of a marketplace feel. The site is designed so that users can easily post listings, both free and paid listings and that it is inviting and easy to navigate for the site visitors, along with a built in messaging system.

Oscar Peñas

An acclaimed jazz guitarist and composer and client who also became a good friend, Oscar needed two online presences. One public website with which to promote his music and  especially his newest album; and a hidden site (an ecard) for professional contacts. The public site features a promotional video, select tracks, an image gallery, a gig calendar, press, and an easy option to purchase Oscar’s albums–and it is chalk full with SEO. The E-card can be accessed only individually and is designed for promoters, venues, and the press to easily and quickly download materials from hi-res images to tracks to riders.  For both sites we decided to prominently feature images created for the new album to set the mood for the music.

John Muggenborg Photography

John, an established commerical product photographer needed to establish a new web presence to promote his architectural photography. The site needed to have an entirely different feel from his previous website, it needed present the images in superb quality, provide an opportunity to purchase images off the site, whil at the same time protecting the images from being downloaded illegially.  We decided to use the professional photographer platform Photoshelter which offers all of these functions, tweak it to meet our aesthetic goals and fill it up to the rim with SEO goodness.

Artist & Accomplice

A friend and fellow entrepreneur, Catherine wanted to start an online e-commerce business for young collectors that would feature one artist per month. The site needed to be clean, give potential buyers a quick and welcoming introduction to the selected artist’s work, give them the opportunity to browse past artists, provide an easy way of taking the conversation offline and into the studio, while also making it easy purchase the art work. Catherine wanted the site to stand apart from other e-commerce art site by focusing on a well curated group of artist  she personally admires and offering the visitor the opportunity to build a relationship to the art and the artist rather than treating the art as a commodity. It also needed to be fun.
