Jewel Thief

Jewel Thief website mockups

The Goal

Jewel Thief is an incredibly talented band of musicians hailing from Northern New Jersey. They contacted me to produce a clean and simple web presence for their group. The site needed to be easy to maintain while presenting a unique look and feel.

The Site

The site is built on Keystone.js, a Node.js based CMS currently in open-source development. It needed to pull resources from various third-party endpoints so that the band rarely ever needed to touch the site itself to update content. This was managed utilizing a few different third-party APIs/Widgets. The site was built on an extremely limited budget and time frame so rapid development/deployment was a must in order to save on client costs.

The Tools

  • Keystone.js
  • Bootstrap + SASS
  • jQuery
  • Instagram API
  • Bandcamp API
