Web Design + Digital Marketing

Client: BedPost Confessions

The producers of BedPost Confessions contacted me to redesign the website of their Austin, Texas based reading and performance series. They wanted an easy platform to promote their calendar of upcoming events, their extensive podcast collection and their new anthology book. On top of it all, they wanted to capture the energy of their performance shows and the vibrant community that attends in standing room only crowds.

I worked with the producers to create a website using the Squarespace platform, which they can update easily. We worked with a JavaScript developer to produce a custom interactive "confessions" scroller on the home page that shows off select audience confessions and allows visitors to submit their own confessions to be read aloud at future performances. We cataloged nearly 100 podcast episodes that can be listen to on the website and via automatic syndication through iTunes. And we built an events calendar that automatically updates the home page of the website to promote upcoming shows.

The project was almost as much of a blast as one of their live shows.
