Capital Sound Launches New Website
With the 2007 competitive season ready to begin, Capital Sound Drum & Bugle Corps has launched a brand new website as a part of a corps-wide re-branding and updating. The corps website, along with corps logo and companion collateral materials, all signal a move towards giving Capital Sound a brand new look and identity.
“I am really excited about this next step in our evolution,” commented Corps Director, Marc Gofstein. “Capital Sound has a great track record of presenting entertaining shows. This will take us to the next level by giving us a unique look and style. Drum corps is about creativity and style. We won’t suddenly change how or what we perform, because we’ve been successful there. However, this move will definitely create our own look and identity.”
The new website, the creation of corps alum David Peterson, was designed to make a strong first impression of the corps. “I took a look at several other corps’ sites,” said Peterson. “I noticed that some gave you an immediate idea about the corps and who they were, while others were nondescript. I wanted people see the first page and immediately know that we are a top-notch organization.”
Along with the website, the corps commissioned Michael Cline, a volunteer with the corps, and alum of the Santa Clara Vanguard, to create the new logo for the corps. This logo has already debuted on new corps jackets, and will be featured on corps souvenirs and the corps’ busses. The new look will culminate in the 2008 season with new uniforms that will be produced by Stanbury Uniforms.
Founded in 1995, Capital Sound is a non-profit youth organization dedicated to the betterment and enrichment of the youth of Madison, the State of Wisconsin, and throughout the United States through life-skill training, music education and performance.
