Portfolio

Carmel Partners needed a new interactive site to showcase their ingenuity and creativity – something that struck a balance between being creative and being professional. The design has a sleek and modern tone that the build matches. The site is sprinkled with subtle interactions, eased to give the site life while moving the tone forward.

2.0 - Townsquare Live

Townsquare Live asked us to build out a WordPress multisite where they could manage content for 7 of their annual music festivals. The system I built relies upon a single source of markup for all 7 sites and uses gulp to manage the different stylesheets. Using a custom post type, TSL can create reusable page modules that they can spread around their site to build completely custom and novel layouts for each page. The build gives focuses to their engaging content and is driven by TSL's rich library of media from each festival.

Country on the River is a fun and engaging country music festival headlined by some of the biggest names in country music. The design is littered with elements that set up the event's sense of place in Prairie Du Chien, WI along the Mississippi river. The animations and interactions of the site are all timed to be quick and lifelike to match the excited and engaging tone of the design.

Taste of Country is the go to music festival for those who love traditional country music. The design strikes a bold but simple tone accented by simple design elements and ornamentation. Interactions support the design's tone by being equally simple but noticeable.
