Kojo's Needs

With consideration of Kojo’s favorite artists, an observation of Pharrell and DJ Tunez’s likeness was made. Pharrell and DJ Tunez were chosen, because they both have production background, which falls in line with Kojo’s work.


The observation included awards won, projects and current following on four popular platforms to decipher what today’s most popular artists are incorporating within their socials. In order to ensure the study had enough data, a 3rd artist by the name Kaytranada was added.


With the data collected, it was clear that every artist selected had an an impressive amount of popularity to consider them within a competition audit. The findings included the following:

  • Having 1 page and section within the homepage is more user experience friendly when it comes to an artist’s profile.

  • A section that takes people to current work is a non-negotiable

  • Capitalization to emphasize certain areas is seen within all the websites viewed




User Journey

Home Page
Kojo's logo is a pivotal part of his brand, so it was important to insert it throughout the pages. His mysterious allure is also perfectly exhibited in the image chosen for the homepage.


Kojo also has experience in playing instruments, so it was important to call this out within his booking page. The background image is a collage from one of his most attended events.


Events are a major component of any artist's brand. With this in mind, a showcase of the fun-filled mood that emerges from his appearances were strategically placed in the background.


Kojo released an EP, and that was the focus on the projects page. Icons that would link to the project are also displayed. Below, visitors can quickly get a view of his other work.



Kojo is an artist that is known to have a mysterious, creative and friendly aura. When designing his platform, it was imperative to make sure the website matches his who he is. He provides great moments and joy with his musical talents to people every day, and this needed to be reflected throughout the entire project.






As a music lover and creative, this project was fun and informative. I challenged myself to add images and elements that would easily mesh with white colored font. Knowing that this platform could leverage Kojo's success, meant that it was important that his personality was fully immersed into every inch of the site.

Thinking Ahead

It would be great to get metrics on visits and bookings in order to get a sense of how the platform is benefiting Kojo's career.
