Txt Recordings

Lee Norris approached KodeTwo co-founder Mark Streatfield in 2011 to create a website for his record label Txt Recordings which specialises in physical product. The brief was to give customers a focussed and streamlined experience that made purchasing as easy as possible. While the presentation needed to be slick and engaging, the CMS also needed to be simple to maintain and update, therefore the backend is XML data driven.

In the summer of 2018 Alvin Boule took over the running of the site as Lee looked to concentrate on a setting up new projects. As part of this process we restructured and future-proofed the site to foreground new releases while acting as a repository for legacy releases. We were able to migrate the site to a new server and provide support for Alvin as he implemented his plans to take the label into the future.

Since then our working relationship has expanded to include artwork services for CDs. This has involved optimising and pre-flighting existing artwork and originating designs from an initial concept or material provided by the artist.
