Designsite Brands and Designs a Music Website for Jazz Great Ambrose Akinmusire

Designsite was enlisted by the celebrated Jazz composer, arranger and trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire, one of the hottest names in the Jazz world today, to brand and design a new website to coincide with his anticipated new album “Origami Harvest.”



Akinmusire sought out Designsite after having been impressed by their work for Jazz icon Brad Mehldau. Said Designsite’s Michael DeMartin: “it was really strange because we were huge fans of Ambrose’s last album, The Imagined Savior is Far Easier to Paint. To me it was one of the very best albums I heard in the last five years. And then to have Ambrose call me and tell me he loved our work, well that was really special.”

Designsite worked hard to get website ready in advance of the new albums debut on the legendary Blue Note record label. Include are track samples, video and information regarding the album presented in a highly engaging and informative design. The album quickly garnered rave reviews and feature stories in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, and others.

The website was designed using Squarespace as the content management platform, enabling us to build a beautiful and responsive website that displays perfectly on all computers and mobile devices. Because Ambrose is so active on social media, posts from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are pulled directly into the website in real time.

The website also features a complete history of Ambrose’s incredible rise as a musician and place in the music world, and contains informative and media-friendly pages for his past album.
