At first glance, this website could definitely use a redesign, as it looks like the background is using a stock image of wood, and it doesn't fit with the texture of wood that is on the album cover. The colour scheme of the website and album artwork also don't match, and the general layout of the web page is quite hard to navigate.
Looking at Hans Zimmer's website, you can see that it needs a complete rebrand as it looks very old. He would be quite a difficult musician to create a website for, as he is constantly getting involved in new projects and releases new music monthly, as he creates music mainly for movies and television shows. He'd be a really interesting artist to do, however his website would have to quite basic to fit with all of his new releases, meaning there isn't much point in redesigning this website as it wouldn't answer the brief that we have been set.
The Naked and Famous.
Above is the website and album artwork for the artists The Naked and Famous. It's an old album that was released in 2013. I think this could be really interesting if I filmed myself ripping up a poppy so that it related to the artwork, as their current website is incredibly basic. I don't think I will create this, however, as although it is very basic and simplistic, it is quite effective.
Cry Baby Cry.
Above is the album artwork for CryBabyCry's latest EP. It is entitled 'Go Go'. This would be a really interesting band to create a website for, as they are a local band with quite a small fanbase, so the website and concept that I would later develop would help get the band some exposure and recognition. It would also be quite interesting to create a website for this band in particular, as I have filmed videos of their shows previously.
Grimes is an artist I'm really fond of at the moment, she creates really obscure music and she then creates illustrations to go with the album. I think she's a really interesting artist and she's just released a really good album entitled "Art Angels". Her website is quite basic and hard to navigate, however it is apparent that it is a temporary website just for her latest release. I think it could definitely use some work that would make it easier to navigate and also more interactive. I also think the website shouldn't be just the album artwork, it should also advertise the other albums, as each album uses her own artwork, so the colour scheme could just be the same colours used as this album artwork, however it could relate to all her releases.
