A Violin’s Life

Designed as a micro site within the networked sites at FrankAlmond.com, A Violin’s Life serves as an authoritative online resource for the “Lipiński” Strad. The site needed to be able to present typographic-dominant content in a way that was both educational and aesthetically pleasing; as a result, the site relies on typography that is extraordinarily readable in both desktop and mobile device formats. In addition to the exhaustive essay content, the site also features a number image galleries dedicated to each of the instrument’s major periods along with a stunning gallery of contemporary photographs.

In order to incorporate and promote the latest installment in the recording series, the site was updated to include dedicated pages for each album that include traditional details along with all of their respective original Kickstarter content, media, and complete backer list.

An updated homepage promotes a Vanity Fair article about the instrument and a section featuring on both albums.

Brand new image gallery layouts now offer unique user interfaces based on the type and amount of image content per galley.

Venture Industries has handled all my sites for several years now, from the initial construction to basic updates and maintenance. These sites are drastically different from one another, yet integrated in a certain seamless way, thanks to the innovative and comprehensive approach that is a hallmark of Venture. From basic aesthetic guidance to cutting-edge technical advice, the difference with Venture is obvious. I finally have a full-service web company that incorporates a vast knowledge of the arts world with high-tech mastery, all at a reasonable cost. In my experience, that’s a rare combination.
