The Headfunk.

Site Setup • Design • Development • 2020

The Objective

At the time, The Headfunk was an upcoming podcast that wanted a website before it was launched in order to establish their brand feeling and to have a place to publish podcast episodes & blog content.

It was important to the client to have an easy to use website for their audience, so that they could easily reference pages from the site during podcast episodes, pages such as the recommended resources & show-notes.
Our objective is saving the world. It’s dangerous; death is practically a certainty, success nigh on impossible.

Foundation

Without existing content & branding, I used the logo as inspiration for the website design, and after defining the clients requirements was able to determine the structure for each page – always keeping the audience in mind!
With sitemap & wireframes in place, I built each page, testing the appearance & functionality using imported “dummy” content.
An alien race has rejected our diplomatic overtures and gone straight on to the offensive. They’ve launched an asteroid at Earth.

Functional

It was important to The Headfunk that the website would be easy for them to use, and easy for their audience to navigate. Simple to post podcast episodes and for visitors to be able to listen to episodes on the site, with clear show-notes.
The functionality to easily add affiliate links was integrated, along with the clients preferred ESP (Email Service Provider).
We have one chance to deflect its course. A state-of-the-art Mech battle robot.

Handover

A few rounds of work later and The Headfunk was complete. From a simple concept to a complete website; easy to use & navigate.

The look & style of The Headfunk was built from the ground up inspired by the logo. Establishing a consistent brand feel & colour scheme, reflecting a masculine yet open feeling that matches the emotional content of the podcast.

Using plugins & custom coding, The Headfunk’s functionality & aesthetic exceeded the clients expectations.

  • A welcoming home page, benefitting from clear naviagtion.
  • Easy to use & accessible, with shareable URLs.
  • Blog capability:
    • Able to listen to show episodes on the site
    • Clear show-notes layout & styling
    • Categorised, searchable blog content
  • ConvertKit integration.
  • Affiliate links supported throughout the site.

Goodluck soldier, you’re Earth’s last hope. As Buzz Lightyear said, “To infinity… and beyond!”

Process

Good design is a journey of understanding.
My aim is to create a website that helps you to reach your goals & provide real measurable value.

Each project begins by learning as much as I can about your needs & business, in order to get a crystal clear picture of issues your users may be facing and an insight into how to ensure your site performs.

I want to identify your goals, along with where your needs are not being met. This allows me to help to get you where you want to be.

Using this research as a solid foundation, we can move fowards, confident that the site we build together will give you the results you’re hoping for.

Attention to detail is key, which I combine with a results-driven approach when designing my client’s websites.

Bringing an understanding of good design principles, I ensure your website not only looks good, it’s also a pleasure to use – helping it to outperform your competitors.

I prioritise performance & stability in every website that I build as a freelance web designer, as I know how important it is to you that it functions as well as it looks!

Want to have control of your own content? No problem, I primarily work with WordPress; providing clients with a simple & intuitive way to manage your website.

Taking care of your investment is super important! I offer a range of flexible website maintenance packages solely designed to ensure your new website is secure & backed up.

If you’re thinking of making iterative updates to your site and improving it over time, you’ll definitely want this.
