Mr Musichead

Established in June of 1998, Mr Musichead was the first institution in Los Angeles devoted exclusively to the art and visual history of music. The gallery started as a 200 square foot storefront in the heart of the Melrose Shopping District.

The offline location of Mr Musichead collects and displays music related art work, photography exhibitions, and signings; while the Shopify store offers its customers a way to shop the collections online and make event reservations.

Challenges:

​● The original website was built with html, and there were frequent bugs and it was difficult to use

● The layout of the website was too busy. It was hard for the customers to find products given how large the catalog is. Major adjustments need to be made along with the migration of the customer lists

● Some assets had low resolution such as banners and product images

Solutions:

1. Website Design Optimization

▪ The original branding guideline was followed but we focused on optimizing the design for better store sales conversion

▪ Added pages such as Blog, About Us, etc. to make the website more complete while keeping the design elegant and simple

▪ Compatibility tests: multiple QA tests were done before launching to ensure the website functions well especially on mobile
