If you’re an avid music fan, or even if you aren’t but just enjoy discovering some new bands or artists once in a while, I just came across a tool you might find enjoyable and useful.
Here’s how it works. Just click this link to Music-Map and from there enter the name of an artist whose music you like. Click the search button and you will be shown a list of artists who might appear to you. the closer they are to the name of the original search you put in, the more likely (at least in theory) you might be to like their songs.
A local actor recently hired me
to create an online portfolio and some promotional materials for him. Here’s the post card I came up with:
The front features our home city of Pittsburgh in a washed out photo as the background. It also emphasizes his build and history as a boxer.
The back uses a plain white, non-distracting background for sort of a minimalist effect. It also shows a few different look variations with the small images as well. I’m sure he won’t mind the contact info being out there, after all, that’s the whole point of promotion isn’t it?
I made sure to use a fairly interesting font but also tried to keep it simple enough to be easily readable.
Here’s the online portfolio I built on his behalf:
