Tom’s website needed to be innovative and cutting edge, a reflection of his talent and accomplishments. The mobile responsive website we redesigned for Tom is one of the most informative, engaging and user friendly online experiences that a film composer can have.
There was a lot of research and curating involved in this project. We showcased his featured film scoring projects utilizing a parallax functionality, creating an almost three dimensional experience where there is a background image from the film and on top of that layer are the soundtrack album covers, movie posters, music players, credits, tracklists with links to purchase his scores on iTunes and Amazon, links to the films on IMDB, making of the score videos, film trailers, links to articles, at times photo galleries from behind the scenes and Facebook and Twitter sharing options for each project.
Tom’s studio albums each have their own page with various media content. Videos are embedded displaying the commercials he has scored. An up to date news blog is utilized for press releases and news articles. A press photos section with high res download images was implemented to enable his agent, manager and pr team to provide press publications with ready to download images to utilize for articles.
We also showcased Tom’s featured video game composition projects, added video interviews, live performance photos and videos, a contact page with Tom’s management and agent information and also implemented social media icons and links.
Tom also has an online video series “Studio Time with Junkie XL” via YouTube. We created a page to present video tutorial details and YouTube video embedding.
The many musical facets of Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL now reside on his new forward thinking official website that provides an online experience that serves as an authority for anything and everything related to him and his work. Instead of industry and fans surfing the web to look for various information about Tom and his work, be it at IMDB, Wikipedia, websites, blogs, the website we designed for him provides people with accurate information they need to know about Tom, what he’s accomplished and what he is working on.
When press publications write about Tom and link to his website and when people visit his social network sites, they click the link to Tom’s website and access organized content, explore his artistry and really get to know him, his eclectic sound and look forward to returning to his website to find out the latest happenings of this highly talented and in-demand composer.
