How mediaman started their web page design journey

Summary

Bardington is a music company focusing on production, promotion and distribution of music (physical and virtual). In earlier days companies like Bardington have been called record labels ;-). Bardington ist focussed on Pop, Pop/Rock, Singer/Songwriter Music with some Hip/Hop, R&B artists. Heavy Metal and Dancefloor are not focussed.

As the next step in the creation process of our corporate identity we need a high-professional website (homepage only) design.

Company name

Bardington
