As the largest part of a series of updates to multiple digital platforms to help promote the band’s independently-released sophomore album, The Bridge, I redesigned the WordPress website for Graffiti6’s official website. The site is responsive for both tablet and mobile displays and focuses on Graffiti6’s discography, with custom post types used to build a discography of music releases and a lyrics section. The two sections are connected to link each song on a release to its lyrics, and in order to provide interactivity, I used Livefyre’s Sidenotes plugin to allow fans to share and comment on their favorite lyrics. (Read more on my implementation of Livefyre Sidenotes here.)
I completed this website redesign for the Writing, Rhetoric & American Cultures department at Michigan State University. Objectives included the use of a fresh and bright color palette, responsive breakpoints for tablets and smartphones, improved navigation, and a more useful homepage layout. Previously created calendar widgets were also updated for efficiency by using CSS linear-gradient instead of images to build a zigzag pattern, and a custom web font (Asap) was included in headlines for a more modern, updated look. Theme built using WordPress’s Twenty Thirteen theme as a base.
