Brutal vs Schmaltzy – Exploration of Rock Band and Pop Website Designs
Like the Jedi will always fight against the dark forces, there will always be a tension between Pop and Rock. When it comes to the music industry, the difference between those two directions is pretty evident: while one serenades of sweet melodramatic songs about love, relationships, betrayal and blah-blah-blah; others shout out about life, problems, politics, and hard work, encouraging us to ‘party hard’. However, is there any distinction in the web design sphere? Today we are going to sort this out.
We have picked out 10 websites of beloved Pop artists and 10 websites of famous Rock bands. As it turned out, in this struggle of brutal and schmaltzy website designs have things that are in common and things that set groups apart from each other. Take a look at our roundup of user interfaces that skillfully reflect personality, spirit and nature of every musical artist.
