Linda Waterfall is a nationally-acclaimed composer, songwriter, and performer. She first hired me for several promotional photo shoots, then to design two CD packages, and most recently to rebuild her website from the ground up.

Since Linda enjoys writing and technology, WordPress was a logical choice for the site platform. We worked in close collaboration to develop a site that met her requirements:

  • A website with colors and layout that reflected her approach to art (in fact, we used her own watercolors for the banner and the color scheme)
  • A photo- and audio-rich site to both entertain her fans and draw new interest from others
  • A calendar of events that would be comprehensive but easy for her to edit
  • A blog page where she could share ideas about music, art, and life

My Roles

  • WordPress development including creating a child theme; modifying CSS and PHP
  • Graphic design
  • Consultation on all content
  • Writing and copy editing
  • Photographing Linda Waterfall, her artwork, and her album covers
  • Switching her domain name registrar and web hosting service
  • Coaching her to use WordPress
