I have just launched my third site for the amazing artist, Paul Stopforth. We have been working together for almost 15 years. The latest and greatest version of his website provides a clean and simple layout for him to showcase his work.
The homepage randomly selects an image that displays full screen. The Artwork section displays a masonry grid of his pieces you can either click to expand or get more information about the piece. Work is categorized by the major periods of his work and then furthur broken down by medium.
The custom-built content management system makes it easy for paul to publish and edit his own content without any technical challenges.
While teaching in the Visual and Environmental Studies Department at Harvard University a young artist and teaching assistant in the department referred me to eBree Design. After viewing the remarkable quality and degree of professionalism visible on his site I arranged to meet and talk with Bree.
On meeting Bree for the first time I was immediately impressed by her articulate presentation of her skills as a designer which included information regarding the time required to build a site, the costs involved and the ongoing relationship that would be necessary to keep the material updated. She used her computer to give me a sense of color and overall compositional and structural possibilities, and enquired with insight and curiosity into the nature and identity of my own work as an artist. I was impressed by the importance that Bree attached to having a real sense of the content and meaning of my own work and contracted with her to design my site at www.paulstopforth.com
The confidence that Bree brought to the presentation of herself certainly led me to trust her as a person who would focus her skills on providing the quality of work that I had asked for, that she would be available to deal with any additional information that I might want to be brought to the site over an extended period and that she would do so in a brief time frame after being asked to do so. All of these expectations have been met.
Over the past 4 years dealing with eBree Design on an ongoing basis has been a real pleasure and my site has led to an increased number of people interested in the viewing and purchase of my work.
Thank you Bree for your vision, insight and sheer professionalism!
Paul Stopforth, Painter and Sculptor
