For my websites previous students work i will analyse “The XX”, I chose this one so we could take some notes and tips from this website. I was drawn to this for it’s simplistic style and major video.
The first thing I notice on the website is the instant video of their latest song which is attractive and draws me in straight away. This is definitely something I would like to cooperate into my music website as it immediately informs the audience what genre of music this band creates and what they’re music is like. The colour scheme of this website is very conventional for the genre and style of music.
I like the background because although it a simple yet slightly busy, because of the soft colour scheme it doesn’t distract from the main attraction being the instant video and panels.
One of my favorite additions that this website has is a gallery of their artists, this allows the audience to connect more with the artists and see the more personal side to their life rather than public.
The final area that I loved and will definitely incorporate in my own website is the merchandise page as this allows the audience to reinforce their personal identity and also promoting their brand. Another way they do this is trough the social media links allowing the audience to follow and share content from the artist.
Overall I think this website is very professional looking and easy to navigate.
