Parquet Courts Website

Website — HTML, CSS, JS — Back-End Development by Naomi Scott

I was tasked with designing a website for the band Parquet Courts. The brief mentioned that while the design has to be based on the cover of their album Wide Awake, as well as a promotional landing page that was created to promote the album, it also has to be adaptable for future releases. I took cues from the typography and color scheme of the album cover, and created a chunky type-centric website that features a simple color scheme based on the album. The color scheme, consisting of only two colors, could be easily changed to reflect future releases.

Certain website features, such as oversized type, randomized colors on hover, Mickey Mouse cursor and horizontal video carousel reflect the entertaining and bizarre quality of Parquet Courts’ music.

Ultimately, the client requested a lot of changes to the site design, and the images that are displayed here reflect my vision, rather than the current finalized version of the site.
