TORONTO - Toronto-based jazz trumpeter, vocalist and composer MIKE FIELD was just awarded the worldwide Web Guru Award - Guru Of The Day for his web design work.
The winning project was the music website http://www.mikefieldjazz.com and was designed by Mike himself, through his design firm Mike Field Enterprises. The front-end programming features Pixelarity's HTML5 and jQuery, and the backend is a custom CMS and marketing platform running on MySQL. The design itself features some award-winning music videos and photos. The website has been online since Mike launched his professional music career in the late 2000's, and it's now in its fourth rendition - the current design being the award-winning one. It was built to feature Mike's music, videos and upcoming concert dates. It also allows visitors to purchase physical albums and MP3s.
Of the win, Field said, “I’m very grateful to be recognized by industry leaders for my web design work. It’s taken me years to build up to this project, to balance design, functionality, usability, and content. Plus, the technologies change so fast and the hard work of keeping up is paying off. I’m also very excited my work is getting the exposure that comes with this award.” Field also credits his photographer, Kid With Camera, for his crucial contribution to the visuals of this project.
