I had this quote tucked away for awhile (from 2012, I believe), from Seth Godin, though I can’t find his original posting.
Over time, our digital footprints add up and create a cyber world that starts to take on some of that very same messiness. Change a font or a layout or where something is, and it bothers us. You can take advantage of that need for comfort by making your digital work a little less sterile, a bit less squared off. - Seth Godin
A band or label website doesn’t need to be super fancy, not in 2019. Most traffic probably doesn’t even come to your home page, it comes to some other section of your site, linked from social media, or a blog posting. In that case, all the image sliders and fancy tech on the front page ain’t worth a damn.
