IanHunter.com – WordPress Site Conversion

Client: Missing Piece Group

Date: July 8, 2015

Categories: Music / Site Conversion / WordPress

Client: Missing Piece Group

The Brief:

  • Ian Hunter (Mott the Hoople) has a new album coming out in the fall, and a site redesign was needed.
  • "Current Site" was dated and maintained by hand.
  • Client wanted to take advantage of site organization and simplicity afforded by a WordPress back-end.
  • Client wanted Ian's image to be front and center, in a style similar to the sites featured on this list of "25 of the Best Band Websites"

Project Notes:

  • Selected the Motion theme, which I heavily customized to make Ian's photo shoot prominent throughout and add functionality.
  • Moved over (and reformatted) a large amount of content from the old site, which was coded by hand
  • Added Social Functionality (Facebook widget, Twitter widget)
  • Installed and configured BandsInTown widget to pull Tour Dates from BandsInTown.com (where client keeps them updated)
