Create Digital Music is an online community of music creators and digital creatives. Edited by Peter Kirn, Create Digital Music has spawned Create Digital Motion and most recently, Noisepages. CDM’s previous design was due for a refresh and the integration of the sites into one broader family was top of mind.
The logo is a simple and elegant system – Create Digital comes first and then each of the sites has it’s own colour system and appropriate line. Create Digital Everything is a fun example of the kind of substitution that the logo system lends itself to. This ended up featuring in a series of tee-shirts I screenprinted for the launch.
I’ve been doing design for CDM in one form or another for the last few years. It’s been real success story of international creative collaboration – one of the nicest things about working with Peter on CDM has been chatting and working with all sorts of great people across the globe.
Finally, the job required a set of illustrations and fun little bits – Peter’s never let his websites’ noble aims get in the way of having a little fun and these were just that. I can never resist an invitation to do little doodles for fun!
