Sola Rosa

The reissue of Sola Rosa’s highly acclaimed album called for a slick website redesign to match.

Originally released in 2009, Sola Rosa’s Get It Together album went on to go gold in New Zealand, and has remained a fan favourite. This reissue has been five years in the making, so we gave the Sola Rosa website a super redesign befitting the momentous occasion. The homepage proudly shows off the slick new album package, with the cover sliding aside to reveal the printed insert and vinyl records. Gold!
Sola Rosa Wordpress theme custom design and plugin development

The previous Sola Rosa’s website was equally stunning, incorporating and bringing to life Matthias Heiderich’s moody photography.

The musical force behind Sola Rosa is an old friend from high-school, Andrew Spraggon, a multi-instrumentalist who has been honing his talents for as long as I have known him. I’m stoked to be working with Andrew on his website, email newsletters and social media.

The earlier homepage design featured flickering lights on gently swaying poles and other effective use of CSS animation.

Under the hood:

The Sola Rosa website has been running on Wordpress since way before I took control, and it’s still a perfectly good choice for a site that has lots of news/blog content.

The design was given a major facelift in 2020 for the release of Chasing The Sun album, and has since had another redesign with the re-release of Get It Together.

I also design and manage the send-out of email newsletters to fans through CampaignMonitor.
