Student Redesign for Buena Vista Social Club Website

Website Redesign

Vladimir Guskic is a Conceptual Designer and Animator. Born and raised in Belgrade, in the capital of Serbia, he moved to California in 2007 where he gained experience in both agency and corporate environments as a multimedia specialist. He has worked on several movies, music videos, and commercials. Always learning, he took his first Visual Design for the Web course this summer. 

I was curious about Portfolio Studio. I'd been hearing great things and I wanted to be surrounded with the most enthusiastic and talented students. Finally I had extra time and I decided to treat myself to a class.

I chose to re-design the Buena Vista Social Club web and mobile site because that's one of my favorite bands, and because at that time I had several corporate projects going on and I needed to work on something different. I thought their site needed a refresh with a more colorful design that reflected the vibe of both Latin music and Havana, Cuba. It also called for an improved user experience.

I really enjoy the process of developing a website because it is very creative and structural at the same time.

After taking this class I definitely fell in love with web design, and I'm sure this experience and the project will help me get more recognition and work.
