New website invites Oxford's singer-songwriters to Start Recording

It's exciting times for Paul Dyke in a small shared office in Cowley, Oxford as his start-up web agency Parasola teams up with seasoned designer Phil Gordon from Cairn Agency to help launch Start Recording - a modern, friendly recording studio by local Musician / Producer Peter Pritchard (Prod). Paul said "As a new start-up ourselves, we're so proud to work with Prod as he launches his new business, it's a recording studio like no other - being both accessible for new musicians and supported by top music talent. Our agency Parasola has a similar aims as we support businesses in their creative ideas by providing top digital know-how."

The design of website took place weeks earlier as Phil was invited to create branding materials included logo and visual design for the website. The look and feel is simple and inviting - clearly showing the comfortable environment, the different services offered and the 30 years of experience Prod provides. Phil says the approach was deliberate "we wanted to present recording music in a different way to the usual dark, damp looking spaces - somewhere which is bright, uplifting and inspiring but still full of the latest music equipment.

Phil's work with Paul is typical of his approach of using a pool of experienced local developers and designers to be able to scale and adapt his business as his clients demand. Phil explains, "Paul at Parasola took our ideas and developed the site. He also created new areas so that Prod can blog about his latest recording sessions". The latest post for example tells the how Prod has worked with Owen Paul to co-produce a Eurovision song entry by Tony Myles entitled "You can't handle the Truth". We are all waiting for Eurovision in the hope that the song is selected.
