New Music USA was formed by the merger of the American Music Center and Meet The Composer, two organizations with decades of experience serving the needs of the new music community. On November 8, 2011, their merger was completed and New Music USA was created to strengthen and grow the new music community.
New Music USA approached us with the task of bringing their look into the 21st century. We then applied the brand to its online presence, building a fully responsive WordPress-based website that showcases musician stories and makes it easy for donors to give online.
The website was featured on various design showcase sites and was an Awwwards Site of the Day in October 2012.
