Author website design & creative direction

For James Kaplan’s forthcoming epic multi-biography, 3 Shades of Blue; Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans and the lost Empire of Cool, I redesigned his website, updating the UX and adding rich media. I also added a raft of new UI and movement to the site. We retained our previous richly-researched work for Kaplan’s books on Irving Berlin and Frank Sinatra.

James managed to acquire rights to a fine range of period photography for the book as well as a selection for the website. This gave me lots of authentic imagery to work from, including photrogapy and and record sleeve designs.
