The Raving Poets was a dynamic group of poets and musicians that staged an open-mic reading series from 2000 to 2010. They required a website that reflected their “cool” aesthetic.

Challenges & Goals

The Raving Poets staged an open-mic poetry reading series from 2000 to 2010. The site essentials were: announcements of upcoming readings, news items, band biographies, contact mechanism, and strong visual appeal. With photography by Randal Edwards, a fat header image was chosen and the design was built around a tight 12-column grid. Black & white photography was used throughout to create visual appeal and texture. The site is no longer available.
