I am a 26 year old mashup-artist (both audio and video) who has since 2007 used internet and its web 2.0 tools to build a fanbase. I am active on twitter, facebook, youtube, myspace and ilike, but have reached a point in my career where I need a professional homepage to further develop and grow my fanbase. I want to move away from the amature "label" and a professional homepage is the best way to represent seriousness and professionalism.
I mostly remix popsongs that already have an identity around the world, but I also remix movies, speeches and other sources from popular culture. My whole philosophy is to reconstruct and recontextualize popular culture and at the same time entertain people. I'm constanly shaping my own unique sound, and I am trying to be as original as possible. I am a visual artist in the sense that I always remix videos to go along with the audio. When I remix movies and speeches I actually emphesize the video-part.

Here is my old blog with links to my facebook, twitter,ilike etc.
The work shall be submitted as layered PSD file.
music consumers and popular culture-consumers between 15 and 35, both genders, bloggers,

-Easy to update by me
-Available for future maintenance/upkeep and possible add-ons (I probably want to add a merch-tab in the future)
-independent tab for music downloads: visitors shall have the option to download whole albums, but also have the choice to download single tracks within an album (album art shall be featured)
-independent tab for videos: a place with links to all my youtube-videos
-http://www.pogomix.net/ has the music solution that I'm looking for.
-http://www.phonat.net/ has the video solution that I'm looking for.
-an independent tab for press
The frontpage needs:
-a one paragraph bio
-a music player
-compelling logo/header (if you're intersted in designing a logo too, contact me)
-a standardized link-section to all my social media-sites. (myspace, facebook, last.fm, twitter, ilike, youtube)(check out the attached jpg)
-make a huge visible donation-button
Design keywords (for inspiration, not guidelines) : playfullness, creativity, music, remix, collage, montage art, colors richness
I also have a youtube and twitter-page that needs design. To maintain the consistency between my different pages it would be preferrable to have the same designer. Therefore I am very intersted in further collaboration.
