The transferral of Kirsty McGee’s online¬†presence to a fully responsive, CMS-based platform was the logical progression from our previous work together on design. The new site features a bespoke events listing protocol based on custom post types and the Advanced Custom Fields plugin.

As has been the case for a long time, Kirsty uses BandCamp to manage her release catalogue, and their narrow, elegant, responsive players sit beautifully below the album artwork on the release pages of this site.

The strong imagery from Tor-Erik Ulriksborg suggested a simple and striking full-screen lander, only revealing the site’s name on rollover. The remainder of the site follows this stark simplicity with a spacious, simple layout in subtle shades of grey.
