A Major Turning Point
I admittedly struggled with Chase’s website design quite a bit since it’s original inception. We started out with a basic HTML site in order to showcase his work back in 2008. Around 2011, Chase was getting a hand in the video game industry, working on numerous projects, and his website became more of a necessity. We updated it to feature more of his work in a an accessible way. My struggle with Chase’s website has always been the lack of assets provided by companies that he has worked with. It always seemed to me incredibly difficult to make his work shine without striking visual accompaniment.
In preparation for the last major site redesign we did around 2017, I came to a major turning point in my design approach. My focus had always been to make the projects themselves shine, and not necessarily the music that Chase was creating. I shifted my focus to make his website completely functional, simple, and a tool for Chase to find more opportunities for himself.
Chase’s home page focuses on his latest work. It’s also easy for him to add new blog posts and talk about his current projects.
