I first designed this site for Mary in 2006. Mary still liked the look of the first site so we I kept many design elements of the original site but adapted it to better accommodate a responsive framework and larger format images.
Most of Mary's drawings are done on black paper so instead of the flat black background of the old site, I created a black paper textured background for this site with black blocks.
The home page randomly grabs 5 large image details for a slide show of close ups because Mary's work is so intricate it is hard to see without extreme closeups. The portfolio is filterable by series and the pieces are tagged for sorting by features of the work. Pop-up slideshows automatically resize images for every screen size.
I worked with Bree to update my website (designed by Bree) to a content management site. I love the responsive framework of this site, and the flexibility of being able to update and make small changes myself. Bree’s recommendations were always on target, and she responded promptly to any of my questions or concerns, no matter how small. When working with Bree, I always feel confident that she really knows her stuff, and that she has my business’s best interest at heart. She really is great to work with!
