ccMixter.org is community of musicians that create music together. dig.ccMixter is the sister site of ccMixter.org specializing in music discovery targeted at film, video and video game makers. This design contest for the dig.ccMixter site.
The site’s focus means the target user model of the site is searching, listening and downloading music - in that order. The goal of this design is to keep things as minimal as possible for that workflow. The color scheme, layout and font choices should stay out of the way of these tasks and draw no attention to themselves.
There a four pages and one popup in this design. The PDF document included in this spec should be used as a guide for the vision, functionality and layout for these four pages but we are flexible and open to designer’s input.
PLEASE NOTE: Only designs that include the "Search Results" and "Song Page" will be considered in the final round.
Each page has the same, non-scrolling/fixed navigation and search area at the top. An ‘Options…’ button expands the advanced search options.
At the bottom of every page is a non-scrolling/fixed common ‘Now Playing’ audio player.
The home page was inspired by the new ccmixter.org home page. We would like some consistency between the two sites so please refer to ccmixter.org’ home page but don’t feel compelled to match it exactly. dig.ccMixter’s audience is different (music creators vs. music consumers) and should therefore have it’s own audience in mind.
