An Invaluable Online Forum for Performers
Ask a Performer, a website moderated by Jennifer Marotta
Classical musicians appreciate our classic sense of design
It's always fun to collaborate with fellow artists. We enjoy listening to a lot of music —baroque and chamber music, opera and big symphonic pieces. We understand thetwists and turns of life as a performing artist, and enjoy working with creative people.
Jen is a talented professional musician and trumpet teacher in the L.A. area. She reallyliked our website and print design work for her husband, L.A. Phil principal trumpet TomHooten (tomhooten.com), and asked us to design her new site. Weare privileged to work with this dynamic duo, L.A.'s classical music power couple.
Ask a Performer features true stories by artists who have "defied theodds."
The Forum section is for posting questions and comments on popular topics common toperformers. This section will grow as readers contribute helpful information. Jen is asavvy user of social media and has many contacts in the music world, and she is busyspreading the word about the new site to her friends and colleagues.
Visual elements include stylish, modern artwork, complementary color scheme, clear,concise navigation, and easy-to-read pages. Photographer Vic Pallos shot the stunningnew portraits of Jennifer at Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Theevolving city skyline adds a dramatic touch.
WordPress framework and Forum sections are in place; client Jennifer can add stories asneeded and moderate the Forum easily.
