Just Music website completed
10 Aug 2011, by Dale Hurwitz
Just Music is South Africa's leading independent music company and the home of some of the world's leading independent labels: Beggars Group (including XL, Matador, Rough Trade and 4AD), Mute, Domino, Ninja Tune, Ministry of Sound, Spinnin, Hed Kandi, Dramatico, Hidden Beach Recordings, Time SPA to name but a few.
The website has a strong focus on social media and has been integrated with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The aim of the website is to not only promote Just Music as a business, but also to promote the labels and Artists that they represent.
Strong emphasis was placed on design as we were specifically requested to avoid a traditional corporate looking website and to create a website that was more fun, but stylish. The user experience design that we implemented is to specifically keep website visitors on the Just Music website and to make it easy for visitors to interact with their brand.
With Just Music being an exceptionally dynamic company that is always busy with new and exciting events, artists and releases it was imperative that the content management system allow them to update their own content in the most efficient way possible. I would like to think that this is exactly what we delivered.
Here is what Karl Anderson, the owner of Just Music had to say about the project, 'It was a pleasure working with the team at Gdevelop, who were true professionals, and shared our vision for the new website from the very start. The feedback from our labels, artists, media and retailers has been incredibly positive and the new website is proving to be a great advertisement for Just Music's growing and expanding business'.
A big thank you to the entire team that worked on the project and we all wish Just Music even more success in the future. We look forward to assisting Just Music to further enhance and evolve their online presence.
