One of the things I love about working as a freelancer is all the interesting projects I get to be a part of. I had the pleasure of brightening up my winter this year by working on a web project for Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba.
A website that speaks as powerful as their music
DC & KB have a lot of energy on stage. They’re bright, bold, powerful, and their lead singer, Diali Cissokho is full of smiles and contagious energy. I wanted to design a website that spoke to this energy as much as possible.
After helping them solidify their logo and advising them on how to have an impactful presence on social media, I got started on creating a new website for Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba.
For the design I used rotating big background images and bold accent colors. I kept the home page simple, focusing on one key message and their upcoming events. I advised them on examples of what this key message (that is easily update-able) could say: an announcement such as a release of a new album, or a quote from a critic.
The site features an online store, integration with BandCamp, a calendar of show dates, a blog, and a photo and video gallery.
