Soundgarden

This began with a teaser site, promoting the return of Soundgarden. It was a single page site, built with Drupal, served with Varnish, that collected contact info via an ajax driven form, and displayed some archival footage of the band to get fans excited.

The full site was launched a few months later with more features and a brand new design (to which I contributed a number of the secondary elements). Some of the highlights and challenges include: a store that uses lots of ajax on the front-end and a custom web service on the backend to talk to the actual ecommerce provider, forums powered by the Advanced Forums module, a photo section that pulls its albums from Facebook, and mailing list integration with Mailchimp.
