Special elements: Discography, Facebook feed integration
The website of the quartet has a fairly basic setup with a layout that reflects the ensemble’s heritage, while still being ready for the next decade. I opted for a simple white design without too many flashy elements – this classic simplicity fits them well. The menu is accessible through a hamburger overlay, a pretty and classy way of keeping the site simple and clean.
Despite the general simplicity, some substantial information and media needed to be organised; most notably, the extensive discography needed to have a place of its own.
Next to the discography, the biography naturally needed its own spot. Biographies of musical ensembles are always tricky to write, and a biography of a 50+ year-old ensemble is no exception to that. The quartet is very proud of its many collaborations and wished to feature them in their biography, but as a designer I do favour to keep things clear and easily readable. Therefore I separated the in-text mentions of collaborations from the biographical text, and displayed the collaborations separately instead.
