Jill Barber

Jill Barber is a Juno award winning singer songwriter on the Outside Music label. A star on the rise quickly gaining a worldwide following. We wanted to create a site that showed her off as an established artist in her genre.

We did away with almost all extraneous design elements and focused on giving Jill the spotlight by making her portraits the “design.” I looked to classic soul and jazz artists for inspiration, and the cool hued minimalist designs of Impulse! records informed the treatment of her images to give them a subtly smoky, cool quality.

It was also important to make Jill’s site much more “connected,” to make it easy for new and established fans to quickly find her on social media, and/or buy tickets or music. The front page was designed with this in mind – with portals to all of her social media and ticket and music vendors.
