WXNA is a non-profit and community supported radio station voted best in Nashville, TN. We had the great opportunity to give a new face to their website and created an easily searchable catalog to store their growing archive of diverse programming.
WNXA has been around for only a short time, but it's already captured Nashville's hearts, and our hearts as well! With the main emphasis on their shows and DJs, we wanted the new site to to give users a sense of what a strong community supported radio station can provide to their listeners and Nashville's music scene.
One of the primary challenges was to create an in browser media player to provide quick easy access to new listeners. We landed on a minimal and low interference player in that header that users can use immediately and continue to browse without interruption.
We used energetic live text inspired by some of WXNA earlier promotional materials. The high contrast black and white with touches of red give WXNA a zine like feel, which fit their independent roots just perfectly.
WXNA has an incredible catalog with just about any genre you can think of. We wanted to create an easy way for listeners to learn about WXNA's programming and access their favorite shows. Didn't catch the name of the one song or just want to listen again? You'll find all of that in the archive.
