Sound Advice Client Sites

The challenge

Just as with Talon Beeson, Chicago-based voiceover training company Sound Advice is constantly faced with a real challenge: how do you visually capture and market someone's voice without using photographs of the people themselves?

The solution

Sound Advice employs a small stable of various freelance designers to translate the tone and personality of their clients' voices into graphics. They then turn to me to port those designs onto the Internet, using the occasional Flash animation to spice things up. Working with the designers as well as Sound Advice and their clients, these small, single-purpose websites can usually be turned around quickly, but with a lot of style.

The tools

The websites for Sound Advice were built using HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Adobe Photoshop and occasionally elements of Flash.
