This PlanetCom project was a fun challenge involving the design, development and branding of a modern, responsive website for Classic Studios, a brand new piano studio in Sherwood Park. I particularly enjoyed working on this one, as it managed to seamlessly combine my love of music, design, and creativity. As this was a completely new venture, everything was designed from scratch with plenty of insightful input from the client to ensure that his grand vision for the project was ultimately realized.
The overall look and feel of the site is clean and classy with concise, well written content that conveys the client's quirky sense of humor. The colour scheme used is black and white with a subtle ivory background and a darker orange as the singular highlight colour. This theme is enhanced by beautiful black and white photography showcasing the master instructor at work in the studio. The typography was carefully chosen to match the themes present in the visual and written content of the site, with a fun yet readable script font for the logo and select headings, and a clean sans serif for everything else.
The project also included some branding work for the logo, which was derived from the client's vision of taking the popular phrase "Can't see the forest for the trees" and modifying it slightly to fit the context of a piano studio, which turned it into "Can't see the forest for the keys".
