I’ve found that the most interesting websites often focus around very specific topics. In the case of entertainers, musicians, actors, and performers, their websites are a networking tool for communication and selling their product(s). Anyone working in the entertainment industry should have a usable website offering all the necessities of their talents.
For anyone who needs a bit of inspiration or just wants to check out some great examples look no further than your computer screen. This gallery features an assortment of personal websites for entertainers and musicians from all over the world. Notice how these websites don’t often need a wide assortment of various pages. Showcasing the person’s talents, upcoming shows, bio and press/contact details is enough for a solid foundation.
The sheer number of worldwide conferences has increased dramatically over the past few years. This must in part have something to do with the Internet and the ability to sell tickets from anywhere in the world. Thus a well-designed conference website is of vital importance to any event’s turnout and success rate.
In this gallery I’ve put together 45 examples of website layouts created for conferences and festivals. You’ll notice many common features like sponsored guests and ticket/lodging details. Each event will have its own unique energy and the website should promote this with confidence to sell tickets and build excitement. After all, without people willing to attend you’ve got no conference. And without conferences our world would be much different – a world deficient of brilliant keynotes and inspirational TED talks which provide thought-provoking concepts and hours of procrastination.
