Website Design & Management
Social Media Management
Hi! I'm Emma Chinn.
After completing my music degree in 2011, I started my career in the music industry at classical artist management company, Hazard Chase. I was soon promoted to Office and Marketing Manager, and finally become an Associate Director in 2018 overseeing HR, office management, marketing, social media, graphic design, and the company website.
After 9 brilliant years at Hazard Chase working with musicians all over the world, I decided to take on a new challenge and start my own business. Colour Drop Creative was born! I work with creative companies, individuals in the arts and arts ogranisations, designing and building websites, providing ongoing website management, and graphic design services. This allows my clients the freedom to focus on selling / performing / writing / filming / composing, and promoting their work.
Website Creation & Management
I create attractive, functional and unique branded websites for artists. I work with you to build a page which reflects your image, and gives visitors the information they need to be up to date with your success.
I then offer ongoing management, keeping the site up to date with news, reviews, concert dates, media and more.
There is a one-off fee for the build, followed by PAYG billing by the hour for ongoing management.
Social media is very important when promoting your career and connecting with your fans and supporters, but standing out to the scrolling eye can be difficult. Creating informative and eye-catching graphics is tricky, and finding the time keep your social media channels up to date is hard.
This is when I step in. I can create exactly what you need for all all social media platforms, including YouTube thumbnails, and post them for you!
Perhaps you feel this is not the right time for you to have a website made, but need to communicate your work/projects to promoters.
A good option may be to have a sales document created to send to festivals, venues, collaborators and management teams at the click of a button.
These are interactive PDFs of unlimited pages, including clickable links to videos/audio and designed to fit your branding. They can include biographies, photos, programme notes, reviews, upcoming concerts and anything else you need. Think of it as an emailable website!
I offer a Pay As You Go plan to clients. This means I track how many hours I have worked and send you a monthly invoice.
I also offer retainer plans (details below).

How I Work
My style of working centres around being proactive rather than reactive. I take the initiative, thinking of my client’s needs ahead of time, clearing your path for productivity and progress within your business/career. During my career I have worked with all types of people, from creative minds, process driven people, to practical thinkers, and I relish the opportunity of moulding myself to suit best my client’s style of working. All the above is achieved through clear, strong communication, setting us up for speed and efficiency when stabilising and growing your business to meet your vision.
This is always done with a friendly smile. I enjoy building long-term relationships with my clients built on trust, helping to create a friendly, positive working environment. What is the point in running your own business if you do not enjoy the journey?!
Look After Our Planet!
It is very important to me to ensure I am minimising my impact on the environment. Here is how I run my business in order to do what I can to look after our planet:
I am lucky enough to be able to walk to my office, lowering my carbon footprint
I hold virtual meetings as much as possible rather than travelling to meet clients
I am a paperless business. The increased sophistication of electronic document creation, sharing and archiving means printing paper is no longer always necessary
I use natural lighting and ventilation to minimise energy use
All equipment is turned off when not in use to reduce energy
I use washable, reusable face masks
Helpful tips to make your business more planet friendly:
Recycle materials including toner cartridges
Re-use office supplies such as envelopes and folders
Service printers regularly to ensure operation at maximum efficiency, and minimal adverse impact
Purchase environmentally friendly office supplies as much as possible, including soaps, washing up liquids and paper towels
