GordonWrightMusic.com is all about transparency. Authenticity. Indeed, the mantra for my whole music “career” these days is to do away with the posturing and positioning of a calculated and marketable identity. Instead, I’m gonna try just being myself.
But being authentic with my music doesn’t mean I won’t, say, use the auto-tune now and then on recordings (that’s right, folksâ€”it’s all over the Fooled By April record…). Similarly, that doesn’t mean we’re not gonna put some bells & whistles on the new website!
But I’m going to update this site’s look in my new, transparent way. So, you can now click to see the first draft of GWM 1.0 homepage. And you can also see the design idea for the GWM 1.0 content pages.
Please, please provide feedback! Your honest thoughts and ideas would be much appreciated at this nascent stage of the site’s design. Believe me, I’m not looking to have to do this again for a long, long time.
Thanks, people! No worries about the bio cutting off — it’s just a snapshot image of what will be, it’s not meant to be complete.
I talked to design-guru Stanke and now I’m thinking of getting rid of the homepage altogether. Maybe just putting a bigger image in the masthead of the homepage, but the look would essentially be the same as all the interior pages. I’m all about usability. So I’m also thinking of foregoing image-replacement altogether (as much as I love the Eurostile font), and instead just using good ol’ Arial bold.
Dude the pages look good but some of them don’t properly render in Mozilla Firefox, for instance:
The bio goes on but drops off at the bottom of the page, can’t read the paragraph.
No worries about the bio cutting off â€” itâ€™s just a snapshot image of what will be, itâ€™s not meant to be complete.
Looks Great! Real Sharp!
The links are intuitive; easy to navigate.
Only comment being – More Shirtless Photos.
I should add: the layout won’t be horizontal… The top-right navigation will always be on the top-right of your screen, no matter how small your screen is. The individual modules will nest underneath each other the smaller the page gets… If that makes any sense.
