I’m Rosemary Galton, freelance classical singer, mathematics graduate and Rosiest Design’s founder.
In 2011 I decided to put my two passions to use, to set up a website development business especially for musicians – by musicians. My aim is to create fully functional, stylish websites especially for performing artists and ensembles everywhere.
I offer a full range of services – from design and branding to coding, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and technical support once your website is up-and-running. You can even make your own updates, thanks to an easy-to-use content management system, which means no hanging around when you want to make changes!
Each website incorporates musician-friendly features such as photo galleries, audio and video players and concert diaries, and is optimized to work on smartphones, laptops and tablets, so your site will look great however you view it.
Your brand is unique to you as an artist or ensemble. As a musician myself, I can help identify the traits that set you apart, whilst advising on expectations and norms within the industry, to create a brand that is both professional and distinctly yours.
Using your photographs, preferred colour scheme and typefaces, I’ll put together a stylish and eye-catching general design for your website. Many people choose to view websites on their smartphone or tablet, as well as laptop or desktop computer. Responsive design means your site will look great on any device.
If you opt for a bespoke website, it’s possible to replicate any design element you like with the right code. Coding or adapting plugins for the features you need – whether that’s a concert diary, audio player, or media gallery. I create a development site on my own server, to safely undertake cross-browser testing and iron out any bugs before the site goes live.
I can give initial advice with buying domain names and how to set up web hosting. Once your website is live, I’ll still be on hand to help with the technical side of things – for example, overseeing important upgrades, fixing technical faults or updating your content.
You can opt to include embedded news feeds, follow and sharing buttons to help spread the word about your work. I can also create social media profiles in keeping with the your unique brand.
I also offer typesetting services using Sibelius 6, creating modern performing editions from historical facsimiles, or typesetting handwritten manuscripts. I am happy to accept anything from solo songs to full orchestral scores.

Whatever your budget, whether big or small, there’s a design package to suit you. Take a look at the basic packages:
A website based on a template is a great option for an easy-to-use, stylish website that doesn’t require bespoke functionality or complex design.
A custom-made website offers more scope for your creative juices. It’s a great option if you want a little more flexibility around design and functionality.
Prices may vary depending on the scope of the project, and on how urgent it is. If you’d like to discuss a project of any kind, please get in touch.
