Opportunity: Sound and Music is seeking a new developer for our Primary Platform

Produced by: 
Sound and Music

Sound and Music is seeking a new developer to help us to redesign, refresh and reimagine our Primary Platform: http://soundandmusic.org/  

This is a very exciting moment for the organisation and this work will form part of our wider rebrand project, due for launch in January 2020. 

We are looking to work with a provider for Phase 1 (and ideally beyond) who is dynamic, with strong knowledge of accessibily design and translating design concepts.

Summary of Brief

This development will support and begin to bring to life Sound and Music’s new brand, which has been under review and development since 2017. We have worked alongside multi-award winning design agency ROSE, and the process so far has led us to a new, dynamic and digital first identity and concept.

This development will form Phase 1 of a wider rebrand project, which is outlined further in the Request for Proposals. We are keen to hear from developers that have an interest in working on the longer-term phases.
