I still have miles to go before I
sleep launch my template shop, but I wanted to give you a little sneak peek now at one of my favorite templates, Pamina.
When I decided first to start designing web templates, I definitely had other performing artists in mind, especially opera singers. There seemed to be a lack of (affordable) options out there for this industry and I hope to fill that void.
Pamina is the first opera singer-specific template I created and I am in love with her – so much so that I am using this template to redesign my own music website!
The design is inspired by the old B&W classic Noir films, with a dark, moody aesthetic and a classic, timeless feel. A touch of rosy pink adds a bit of feminine charm.
The Pamina template consists of 8 pages:
the basics – home, about, contact
must have performing artist pages – media, press, engagements/schedule
bonus pages – coming soon, 404, link in bio
For any singers who also teach or coach voice, I also have a music studio/lessons add-on page that will be available for purchase.
Below are some of the page layouts for Pamina…
And here is how I am customizing it for my own site…I do plan at some point to have new pictures taken and I am still playing with colors and fonts, but I just wanted to show how this template can be customized to fit your aesthetic.
All of my templates are designed for use on the Showit platform only. You can read my previous posts on Showit here. I chose Showit because 1) it’s literally the best drag-and-drop platform out there, 2) it integrates with WordPress and 3) the design possibilities and customizations are endless!
If you’d like to see for yourself how awesome Showit is, I recommend signing up for their free 14-day trial (no credit card is needed) and take advantage of all of their educational resources and play with their free templates. If you love it as much as I know you will, you can use my code brie1971 to get one month free!
To sweeten the pot even more, I am going to be offering a huge discount on my (already affordable) templates on launch week as well as giving away a free gift to anyone who purchases a template that week and signs up to my site.
Hope to see you on launch day!
