Grant Dawson Music Site Launched – A WordPress Design

Check out Grant’s new site! Grant was living in Houston, TX and moving up to Minnesota. He had created a small following while in TX and I encouraged him to create a website and a myspace page so his fans from TX could follow him even though he was moving to the Twin Cities. As time went on, he outgrew his first site, and we had some better images to work from. We decided on a blog-based design. Blog designs are great because they allow for easy updates without knowing code and as time goes on, provide a very easy platform for redesign too.

Our process, in particular, was very cost-effective. I gave Grant about 10+ choices of free WordPress layouts. After he chose one, I tweaked it by adding a banner with background, changing link colors, and adding widgets he would use for music, contact, photos, and gigs. The great part is now he can update these on his own while blogging about shows, music or concerts while have fan input. I could not have been more happy with the process, and since I was paid per hour it worked out quite well for Grant too.

His music is great so check it out! And keep on the look-out, he’s coming out with an album this fall.
