Get Social. Share Music.
Rumblefish, Inc contacted us with a cool idea for a Music Video WordPress theme for their new project Social Soundtrack. The goal of the project was in the name: to create a site that allows visitors to socially share soundtracks worth sharing. They had multiple authors and editors who were ready to start adding site content. They needed a clean site that was easy to update with videos from both YouTube and Vimeo, and they needed it fast.
Armed with this cool concept, a few sketches and some new WordPress features in mind, they were ready to get started.
And because we were given a little creative leeway, we had fun running with it.
Creating a Music Video WordPress Theme
Our design team was able to use a PSD file from Rumblefish to create a base for a music video WordPress theme.
- integrated our framework into the base of the music video theme,
- registered a custom post type for the music video deathmatch poll / voting,
- registered a custom post type for multiple “Best Of” video sliders,
- integrated social sharing (of course), and
- created a separate mobile music video WordPress theme for mobile site viewers.
We think it turned out pretty clean, and awesome.
Adding Facebook and Twitter is a must for any and all sites.
And because the main goal of Social Soundtrack is to be able to share awesome music videos, our team added automatic posting to multiple Facebook and Twitter accounts. We also integrated social sharing throughout the site, wherever possible.
Make sure you check out Social Soundtrack on Twitter and Facebook.
