Black Hen Music

November, 2013

Referred to by at least one critic as "the T-Bone Burnett of Canada," Steve Dawson's record label is home to some of this continent's finest folk and roots independent artists. Being personal fans of many of their roster artists, including Jim Byrnes and Kelly Joe Phelps, we're thrilled to have a continuing business relationship with Black Hen.

Lux Visual Effects

February, 2012
The goal was simple: provide an online demo reel and portfolio showcasing the incredible design prowess and technical sophistication at Lux Visual Effects. Being one of the leading visual effects shops in the country, Lux needed a web portfolio that reflected their position as an innovator and their take-no-prisoners approach to technology. Because many decisions are made on set and on the move, the new site had to be mobile friendly. It makes extensive use of responsive design for seamless display on mobile and tablet devices.


January, 2009

Toronto's own K-OS wanted his site to sit in a Commodore 64-era computer--a browser in a browser. On the Nettwerk team, we designed an 80's terminal--the K-POD--which ought to have actually existed back then (but never did). We would like to think that, had the early Apple come up with our brilliant idea of a hard-wired graphic equalizer beside the screen, we'd see it preserved in today's iMac designs.

Jars of Clay

February, 2008
Jars needed a new home for their international fanbase to peruse exclusive tracks, tour photos, and video blogs. Nettwerk (and some nascent Autoboxers) used Drupal to turn content creation and management over to the band and their team, as well as serve an inline music player which was built smart enough to stream an instant-resume mixtape on every visit.

Avril Lavigne

April, 2007

Before the Autobox days, on the Nettwerk team, we redesigned Avril's site for her 2007 release The Best Damn Thing, and her Manga crossover Make 5 Wishes.

The new site was all-Drupal--an early foray into the new technology--complete with discographies, filmographies, a web store and an integrated fan club--a ton of functionality for a fraction of the maintenance time spent on enterprise sites.

Sara Johnston - Trespassing

June, 2010
Sara Johnston's sweet and softly scratchy tones are evolving in all kinds of interesting ways. This is her first solo full length album since Bran Van 3000's heady days. It's layered with some mournful harmonies and some funny lyrics and is all around loveable, especially the hidden track.

Autobox built this flash page and player featuring Sara's new album Trespassing.

Black Hen Music

September, 2008
Black Hen Music was started by Steve Dawson in 1995, and began releasing albums in 1996. Black Hen is dedicated to producing music that is diverse, eclectic and primarily acoustic-based. Since its inception, Black Hen has released over 30 albums and continues to expand its roster.

Autobox Media developed this site using Drupal 5 and collaborated on design, strategy and layout with Suzanne Stromotich. This site features custom Drupal development and media rich content.

Tom Waits eStore

November, 2009
Autobox worked with The Squad based in Seattle to develop the official online store for Tom Waits.

Pacific Producers Group

Pacific Producers Group offers full video and multimedia services to meet your communication needs.

State Radio

January, 2010
A Boston based trio band led by singer and primary songwriter Chad Urmston (a former member of Vermont jamsters Dispatch), State Radio largely managed to avoid the usual post-Phish clichés, injecting a punk-influenced sound and politically charged viewpoint while staying true to the tenets of the band's chosen style, which infuses a blend of Roots-Reggae, Ska, Punk and Rock. State Radio was designed by Suzanne and is maintained by Autobox.
