Jamorama – Re-design

Simon was recently contracted by Christchurch company RockStarRecipes to complete a re-design of their Jamorama website. Jamorama is an outrageously popular learn-to-play-guitar system that is sold to the American market. Created in 2004, the site had seen massive sales success, but it was time for a face-lift. A new design was required to bring Jamorama into the “Web 2.0″ era; funky styling and clear navigation to maximise the customer experience were the top priorities.

This extensive website is backed by a complex, yet clean CSS framework. It is managed internally by Rockstar Recipes. Visit and experience the goodness for yourself.

Uprising-Online is a Christchurch based company that makes rock-climbing holds and training devices to sell to rock-climbing gyms both nationally and internationally. Sefton Priestly, the company’s director, wanted a website to profile the company and its products, and to provide a venue for publishing climbing news and related media. Simon was contracted to design a logo and brand identity, and a fully customized website.

Uprising-Online integrates Google’s Blogger platform to provide easy updating (this technology has since been superseded by the WordPress platform). Uprising-Online also features a slideshow gallery of climbing photography from a number of local and international photographers. This was achieved using simple, highly effective slideshow software with an intuitive user-interface. With the help of tools like this, the client is able to update his own website regularly by adding blog posts, new product information, and media.
