A new home for Grammy Award winner Tom Elmhirst
Back in June, we were recommended to Tom Elmhirst, a five time Grammy Award winning mix engineer and good friend of the iconic Mark Ronson.
We met with Tom in his London studio and it was immediately obvious that his online presence needed a complete overhaul as it was no longer accessible to the growing mobile market since it was entirely Flash based.
Tom had a clear vision of what he wanted – a clean website – which importantly was able to be self managed – and one that was bold in imagery which showcased the caliber of artists he has worked for. The overall structure was relatively straightforward. The site needed a flat framework with a clear navigation structure. There was no need for copious amounts of content pages – ultimately, this was a website that needed to speak with images and artists and provide credentials accordingly.
With names such as the legendary late Amy Winehouse, Adele, Mark Ronson, Cee Lo Green, Lily Allen, Paolo Nutini, Michael Bublé and countless others, this was very easy to achieve. Tom’s biggest achievements were winning the Grammies for Record Of The Year (Rehab – Amy Winehouse), Best Pop Vocal Album (Back To Black – Amy Winehouse) and three more for Adele’s records – and it was important to showcase these along with the dozens of other well known artists that he was worked for.
Tom recently opened his New York studio, where he is now based, and we had a tight deadline to get the new website live to coincide with the launch of his new studios. Both Tom and Katy (from September Management) are extremely delighted with the results, and we’re very proud and excited to have worked with them.
