- Project Description
I was fortunate to meet Mark McLean in 2003 when his career as a studio and touring musician was just beginning to take off. I designed and built his first website back then, but after 10+ years, technology had changed dramatically and a new website was in order. Mark didn't want a generic site, so a site builder such as squarespace or wordpress was out of the question.
- My Role
Mark's website had to reflect both the richness and precision of his musical style and abilities. To achieve the desired look and feel, I used plenty of photography and texture combined with a light and clean typographic style. On the tech side, a flexible, reliable and easy-to-use CMS was key, so I selected the excellent Craft CMS. I also connected the site to popular platforms including Youtube, Soundcloud, Twitter and Mailchimp to allow for easy publishing of content without costly custom development work.
