We delivered a sleek branding update and a digital instrument library for Cinesamples’ entertainment industry personas in this branding and UI case study.

Introduction

Cinesamples needed a website designed and developed to house their virtual instruments and libraries for use across many different entertainment mediums. We also helped them iron out their branding strategy.

The
Challenge

Cinesamples is an e-commerce site that sells virtual instruments and libraries of orchestral pieces utilizing these instruments for use in television, movies, video games, and more. For this branding and UI case study, we were tasked with designing and developing their site. They also needed some branding strategy tweaks and UI consulting to help iron out their identity to form a cohesive picture, including color palette and font changes.

The
Solution

We started with a discovery phase where we researched the vertical to understand why and how users were purchasing these types of pieces. After learning about the space, we jumped straight into high-fidelity mockups. As those were approved, we then designed the corresponding mobile screens.

When it came time to develop the site, we had to coordinate API integration between the libraries on Cinesamples, the music player Musio, which is an affiliated company, and WooCommerce to ensure that licenses were functioning as intended. We then inspected the developed site to make sure it was free from bugs and errors.

Research

We researched similar e-commerce companies and how they were approaching selling music pieces to their users.

Design

Because we were going to make tweaks to the branding, we jumped straight to high-fidelity mockups to see how colors and fonts would look on the finished site.

We coordinated API integration between Cinesamples, Musio, and WooComerce to make sure that the licenses were working properly.

Development

After development, we gave the site a rigorous inspection to make sure that everything was functioning as intended.

Project Summary

We researched why users decide to purchase these pieces, then went to work incorporating and tweaking their brand identity with high-fidelity mockups. We then moved into website development for the live site, integrating APIs with WooComerce and Musio, an affiliated company. Finally, we visually inspected the finished site to make sure it was free from errors and was functioning smoothly.
