AC Media Services was approached by Grant Kirkhope to re-design his website. Grant is an award-winning composer for visual media, scoring video games including Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide & Beyond Earth, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Viva Piñata, Banjo-Kazooie and James Bond’s GoldenEye 007.
Grant’s prior website lacked brand identity, did not contain an informative and powerful landing page with media content, was not mobile responsive which made the user experience difficult on smart phones and tablets, it wasn’t up to date with the latest official information regarding his biography, credits and awards, did not showcase featured projects, contained broken links and did not display icons and links to social media channels. This acclaimed video game composer realized it was time to have a re-brand with a new website that would be a true reflection of his public persona, effectively communicating his eclectic creative capabilities scoring for visual media, provide an accurately informational, visual and musical experience for visitors that was much easier to navigate through than a challenging level on a video game he scored.
We created a mobile responsive online experience for both industry and fans to access Grant’s up to date biography, accurate credits and awards information, a contact page with representation details and a mail form, parallax styled featured project pages with the best quality soundtrack and video game cover artwork, a music player with select compositions, accurate credits, tracklist, award wins and nominations, soundtrack purchase links to iTunes & Amazon, videos of game scenes containing Grant’s scores and composer notes. We integrated social media icon links in the header and footer of the website for visitors to connect with Grant through his social media channels.
“Aviad at AC Media Services is super quick, super smart and super creative. He was full of ideas and was willing to try anything that I suggested regarding my website redesign. He handled everything from start to finish, from initial design, to all the dealings with my ISP and all the bits in between. Thanks for all your hard work Aviad. I love my new website!” -Grant Kirkhope
