Site Launch – Rachel Womble

Rachel WombleCongratulations are in order for Rachel Womble, who just completed her agent showcase performance with the Steinhardt school at NYU. We were thrilled to be able to get her website up online just in time so that when all of those agents look her up online after they see her perform, they will find her brand new site. This design is simple and clean, and feels both feminine and strong. Her beautiful photographs helped us find the right color scheme to build upon. Go visit her site and wish her the best of luck as her career starts in New York City!

 


Site Launch – Matthew Sklar

matthew sklarMatthew Sklar is the Tony® and Drama Desk nominated composer of such Broadway shows as THE WEDDING SINGER and ELF. He needed a simple site to showcase his projects and career, and we were more than happy to collaborate with him on creating a new site. After brainstorming  some graphic inspiration for his site, we came up with a sleek design with a modern feel and some super slick functionality. Be sure to check out the media page to listen to some of Matthew’s music!

We are beyond stoked to announce the launch of our most recent web project for Ethan Popp. Ethan is a music producer, supervisor, arranger, and orchestrator for Broadway and beyond. He has been nominated for  Tony® and Grammy® awards for his work on MOTOWN THE MUSICAL, and I for one can’t wait to see his work on the upcoming HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH starring Neil Patrick Harris.

We got to try out some super slick new design ideas on this site, including  parallax scrolling and mobile responsiveness. To really experience this site, you have to go scroll around on it. (Look for the falling sheet music!) Be sure to also go check out the mobile version on your smartphone too. Thanks to Chaz Cruz for another awesome set of photos to work with, and thanks to Ethan for being such an awesome client and letting us play with so many new ideas.

Site Launch – Landing Pages For All!

Just wanted to give a preview of some sites we have coming up in the design queue. We’ve launched a temporary splash landing page for each of these and we are stoked to design the full sites soon!

Chet Walker is a director and choreographer who most recently choreographed the Tony Award winning revival of PIPPIN. We are building him a WordPress site with a full interactive portfolio of his career. I can’t wait to translate some of his stage magic to the screen.

Site Updates – New Sidebars Galore!

Around Alt Summit, we always get a bunch of requests to spruce up a few of our clients blogs to either make them advertiser ready, or fix some cosmetic issues so they are in tip top shape for the big event. Here are a few sites that we updated this month.

 

lovelyindeed

 

For Lovely Indeed, we completely rebuilt her sidebar to accommodate 300 pixel wide sidebar ads and also moved the sidebar up so that those ads could appear above the fold. Additionally, we made a few style updates to create a more cohesive style and color scheme.

Ashley from Sugar & Cloth is a new client of ours. She, Chelsea of Lovely Indeed, and Brittni of Paper & Stitch threw a party at Alt Summit this year, and while we were there we got to talking about a few site updates for her. We updated her sidebar to be 300 pixels wide as well, and also reorganized her site so that the content and sidebar switched places.

 

bonjourandhola

 

Elizabeth of Bonjour & Hola met us through another client of ours (Jess of From Rain to Shine) and just needed a few updates to clean up her site. We helped her figure out post thumbnails, her pinterest integration, and her blog subscription settings.

We’re thrilled to help out all these lovely ladies take their blogs to the next level. Add all their sites to your RSS feed and follow along on their upcoming projects!
