Project Description

Project Brief

We are proud to have re-designed Hercules And Love Affair’s website and prepared the stage for the launch of Hercules And Love Affair’s latest Single Change and new EP. Founder Andy Butler’s vision was for his website to become a platform to promote his latest releases, portray past productions and keep his following up to date of his live shows.

The focus was on promotion, simple navigation and a brand coherent design with Hercules and Love Affair’s unique colour-rich and progressive style, employing simplicity and the use of impactful imagery. Symphonic Design also managed the hosting provider and domain transfer work.

Dual Principle Design

Less Is More

KISS “Keep It Super Simple”

Simplicity can be beautiful, the opposite can make a website unattractive and dysfunctional.

You won’t find a traditional discography page, the releases page is a full catalogue with easy access to all main digital distributors to purchase and stream Andy’s music. Each hyperlink offers analytics and statistics and a selection of Hercules And Love Affair’s favourite Videos, all Remixes and DJ Mixes can be streamed straight from the website.

Check out the LIVE page for Hercules And Love Affair’s upcoming shows.

The Bandsintown integration ensures the latest information is always available and Symphonic Design ensures new information is uploaded to the various sections when needed including updates and maintenance.
