This was a project that I created for one of my web design classes. The goal was to create a website that utilized MySQL and PHP. I chose to create a music database with design language inspired by Apple Music. I spent a majority of this project entering music into the database in order to have enough information to create a design with. The website was supposed to be fairly simple, with PHP template pages that were to be filled out with artist and album information. I wanted the design to be a blend of the functionality of Spotify and the aesthetic of Apple.
The final design took notes from Spotify with the classic row of album covers and I added the pop of color that Apple tends to use. I wanted the covers to be the focus of the page, so I made sure there was sufficient spacing. This was another quick design and development project so I didn’t implement all the features and pages I would have liked. If anything, this was a learning project working with MySQL and figuring out how everything connects. I overcame a lot of problems with pulling from multiple tables and displaying it currently, especially with the song lists on the artist pages. You can view the website here.
