Robin Hogarth is a double Grammy Award Winning Producer, Composer, and Arranger.
He has made his mark in the industry as the go-to producer of Southern African Traditional Music for TV and Film. His music has been used by celebs like Oprah and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. He’s collaborated on projects with legends like Paul Simon, Alicia Keys, and Johnny Clegg.
The challenge of Robin’s website was how to fit such an enormous wealth of albums, projects, and accolades into one online resource that does justice to his incredible living legacy.
With a career spanning over 50 years across multiple genres, Robin had accumulated so much content that the biggest challenge with this project was how to organize it. We wanted to create a pleasurable, engaging experience for the website visitor that would also radiate Robin’s uplifting, eclectic personal brand.
We went through 3 completely different iterations of the website design before settling on the “double exposure” page header concept with African/fusion theme details. Using this style we hinted subtly at the “film” aspect of his career and were able to combine key story elements into interesting and colorful compositions.
Anyone who knows Robin will know his legendary, colorful shirts. This was the main inspiration for the double exposure idea. The shirt “patterns” now became the subject matter of the page.
