    Hi there. My first post :)

    Artist: Christian Marcussen
    Web: www.marcussenmusic.com (nothing there yet, which is why I post)

    I'm a professional music composer, coming here with an offer. I'm in need of a kick ass website, an figured that rather than just paying someone to do it, I would offer some music to some indie developer who could in exchange create my website.

    As I have a pretty busy schedule I'm not talking about scoring an entire game, but maybe a trailer, cinematic or menu cue.

    If it has any interest, then let me know. If more people are interested I will pick based on website skills, and how interesting and promising your game is.

    If no one is interested well - no harm done :)

    Credits Include
    2006 Untitled game (UbiSoft)
    2005 TimeSplitters: Future Perfect (Electronic Arts)
    2004 Second Sight (Codemasters)

    [Edit] Examples
    www.marcussenmusic.com/boss.mp3 - action
    www.marcussenmusic.com/dukkehus.mp3 - fairytale/fantasy

    You aren't providing examples of your music?

    I really like your music, and I am interested, but I am wondering where you got your vocals from for those two examples. I would like to know more of what you want your website to look like--give me lots of ideas, including emotions, and I can work with that.

    Tell me how you might prefer the layout, if you want rollovers (images that change when the cursor is over them), etc. let me know. I do need information. Obviously if you don't want the website I provide, I can use it somewhere else, so don't bother asking me for examples, I don't have any as the ones from the past are in the past. I have moved on.

    Hi - thanks for the replies so far - here, and in PM's. I'll try gather the info here, to ease my workload (i.e not answer the same questions multiple times :))

    The site must be sweet to look at, easy to navigate but above all look professional. This may seem as if I was a very simple and classy design but thats not a must.

    Here are a few real sites which might also serve as an inspiration. I like when a site is kind of boxed in, like some of these from Nike. Great looking sites!

    http://nikewomen.nike.com/nikewomen...=100%&winxp=false&pLngNum=1&c_ref=global_home
    http://www.nike.com/nikerunning/usa/home.jhtml?ref=http://www.nike.com/nikerunning#home
    http://www.foofighters.com/
    http://bowerman.nike.com/bowerman/

    Colors I like Black, Grey, Red, Orange, Brown - I like images, and I like when things have a kind raw edge. But again - I'm quite open to suggestions as long as the site looks professional, and people coming to my site find what they were looking for.

    I'm considering having alittle flash intro with a short musical fanfare.

    Hi... Just figured I would share my current design concept. Its just a mockup, and something aren't in their place - but it should give you an idea bout colors and basics.

    What do you think?

    Mockup looks stylish man, I really like it! Your music is also of good quality, maybe we can do business sometime.

    Welcome to indiegamer btw.

    Thanks Gnatinator - maybe we can :cool:

    Because I'm not a programming savvy. I'm clueless - Especialy with flash - my intention is that the Black text box resizes depending on content. Also stuff like integrating the video into that box is far beyond my capabilities :)
