Shrieking Tree’s creative director, Justin Norman, has been designing and coding web sites for over fifteen years for a variety of artists and businesses. He has experience with a wide range of clients, including businesses, bands, non-profits, visual artists, and colleges. Past customers include Stanford University, Hi-Fructose Magazine, electronic folk duo The Books, Califone, Unwed Sailor, and many more. Check out some highlights of his work below.
Salon Spa W v2.0
This minimalist, modern web site is one of our more deceptively powerful creations. It allows people to find ethically made clothing companies and sort them using a multi-layered search. So if you want to find American made clothing, you can sort it by Made in the US/UK, as well as the usual Men’s, Women’s, and Kids departments.
New World Kitchen v2.0
Des Moines’ first all-vegan restaurant made its return with this newly designed site. Shrieking Tree handled the whole process including design, photography, coding, and matching print materials including signage and receipts. As a meal-prep company with limited staff, New World Kitchen wanted to be able to disable ordering on certain days of the week and have their new menu made available every Tuesday. We coded an automated system to allow this to happen, which makes the site very easy to update.

Unwed Sailor v2.0
Unwed Sailor is an instrumental ambient rock band from Seattle, Washington, led by Johnathon Ford (Pedro the Lion, Roadside Monument). They’re also one of Shrieking Tree’s earliest clients. I developed the previous version of this web site in 2004, and now, more than a decade later, I’ve redesigned it to coincide with the release of their new EP, Take a Minute. I love this band, and the web site holds a lot of great memories for me.
One of our earliest and most massive web sites was a collaboration with Nick Zammuto and Paul de Jong, the founding members of electronic-folk group, The Books. The web site was designed to match the band’s collage-style music, incorporating dozens of interactive, animated pages, unpredictable exploratory environments, and, of course, easy access to tour dates, news updates, and merchandise.
