The main goal I had in mind for creating this website was to keep my web development skills fresh. This website would be ideal for any band/musician wishing to create an online presence with little fuss.
I built this website on my own initiative to keep my web design skills up to scratch. A theme which came to mind was a band/music themed website so I chose to go with that. A quick brainstorming session presented some ideas for page content and site structure before I came up with some more concrete designs for the site.
I knew I wanted to create all design assets myself so I started coming up with sketches for the logo and other icons to use on the site. I was particularly drawn to a yellow/gold and black color scheme as this seemed rich and inviting.
- Good old pen and paper to jot down requirements, design wireframes, design logos etc.
- Sublime Text and the Bootstrap design framework.
- Adobe Illustrator – To design the logo and other design assets required.
- Chrome developer tools etc – To test the website out on different screen sizes to ensure responsiveness
- Fully responsive website
- Fully integrated contact form
- Custom made logo and design assets all created by Mishacreatrix
