George Ides, a singer, entertainer for all occasions is based in the United Kingdom and he is a solo singer specialising in the songs of some of the world’s greatest performers. Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elvis, Neil Diamond, Andy Williams and a few other greats with similar styles. If you are looking for a Wedding Entertainer, Party or Business Singer or simply for musical collaboration then George Ides is your guy with his passion for great music, singing and performing.
George Ides wanted a new website to replace his old one and he provided several examples all with a similar feel to them that really concentrated on promoting the singer. The website also needed to cover the various songs that get performed as well as give the visitor a good idea of the singer’s repertoire and voice.
After looking at the examples, images and logo a clear idea of the look and feel was established and that is to give a feeling of a “relaxed lounge with singer and piano in the background” so we started with the layout which really needed to promote the singer so we decided on minimal content areas on one side with a nice big image of George Ides. We also decided to go with a darker colour scheme to give the feeling of a relaxed lounge with minimal lighting, we also used some of the colours of the logo in certain places to keep the colours consistant through out the website. We made sure to use images of George Ides that he provided as much as we could on the pages as well as using different images for the background of the pages. Then we also used Soundcloud widgets on the home page to have a playlist on the website as well as an introduction song so that the visitor immediately experiences the voice of George Ides, the playlist also allows the visitor to listen to a couple of other featured songs. We also added some featured Youtube videos on the home page to allow the visitor to experience the music and see George Ides in action. When it came to the inner pages we made sure to have enough information like his biography, repertoire, more videos and reviews about George Ides for the visitor to get a good idea of the singer as well as his repertoire.
The client was very happy with the website from the first draft and was happy with the outcome of the website after our reviews. The website reflects George Ides as a brand and gives the visitor a good look into George Ides as a singer, entertainer for all occasions.
