The Music Mine Studios is owned by musician businessman Peter Footitt. He saw an opportunity to rekindle the musical legacy left by a past industry in North Wales and decided to re-open what was the rehearsal rooms of a coal mine’s brass band. The Music Mine Studios provides a range of services including recording studio and rehearsal rooms, music lessons and band management.
We created a logo and provided brand direction for the Music Mine Studios. The logo was required to reflect the rich cultural heritage of coal mining and the industry’s connection with music and brass bands. Our design includes a pit wheel with the multiple letter Ms under the wheel forming the basis of the pit head. To complete the branding exercise we designed and printed business cards.
With regular consultation with the business owner, Designweb designed and developed a responsive website with built-in content management system, featuring Soundcloud and YouTube feeds. We set up Google+, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter social accounts and integrated these into the site, and worked with a copywriter to provide professional-level text content.
I wanted to thank you and your team for the great work that you have carried out in creating my website, www.themusicminestudios.com
At the start of the project I provided you with a documented brief of my vision and you embraced the concept totally and designed a fantastic visual website fit for purpose. Furthermore your technical department were excellent last Friday morning in finalising the media section of the site, which was exceptionally important given the nature of my business. I was extremely proud to go-live that day and show my website off to the world!! It works very well across all forms of hardware including desk-top, laptop, iPhone, iPad, surface pro etc.
Another area, which exceeded my expectations was branding. Using the brief document, your graphic designer produced a number of different logos. All were of a high standard, but one stood out for me that encapsulated everything I wanted in terms of my business and the heritage of the area.
More importantly, I have been able to apply the wheel section of this logo across all my social media sites and wherever any one sees it – it is my brand – it is my business – it is me!
Once again, thank you very much for all your help, it is much appreciated. I will certainly be recommending you to all my business associates!
