How Charles107 started their web page design journey

Company name

Kartel - But the logo is only the "K" for Kartel.

Overview

Minimalist, clean and organized. The new site should be fluid and functional, designed to make the featured content stand out and everything else get out of the way.

Attention to detail on typography, should provide the detail needed to please the eye as colour will be mainly black and white.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Primarily: B2B - Bands, Managers, Record labels, Music distributor, Media/Press, Music retail

Secondary: Music lovers, Creative Industries (music, design, film, advertising - all sectors that we regularly engage and do business with)

Requirements

The overall feel of the site should be that of an online magazine style. Employing the typography and grid structures that print media traditionally use.

Colour

Stick to neutral colours, black and white. Because we represent artists and labels from many different genres and styles, we really want content to be king. The promo images, photography and album art will provide colour and we want to avoid any clashing schemes and styles.

Font

As we are keeping colour to a minimnum, font can be more extravagant. We are partial to old style typewriter font, es per the logo. Feel free to use these on headers, as long as it is still clear and easy to read, but not on body text which should use a web-safe font.

Number of pages

1

Page descriptions

You will be designing the home page for the site.

*****************************************************************
You can see a mock up of the site here: https://gomockingbird.com/mockingbird/#08ky3fj

******************************************************************

It illustrates the main elements that will feature. Feel free to move things around to achieve the “magazine” style we are after.

These are the main elements:

Links to the following pages:
- Artists
- Lables
- Publishing
- About
- News
- Contact
- Tour dates

- Rotating Banner - The main draw on the site, it will feature the artist’s promotional images or album artwork and links to lean more, their video and purchase their album/tracks.

- Latest news articles - Each with a feature image.
- Tour dates List - date, place, artist and book now button.
- Twitter Feed - with only the latest tweet showing.
- Newsletter sign-up
- Store - Will be a line of album covers, when you hover over each one it gives you artist info and a "buy now" button.
- Social Media links - Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr

Example websites

Love the clean interface, easy flow of content and the way they have made the banner.
