Austin Wright website

Austin Wright website

The brief for this website was nice and clear. Mark already had the beginnings of a site and needed to rebrand to a smarter, cleaner look. Keywords for the brief were ‘modern’ and ‘contemporary’. The site needed to portray a professional image, keep a corporate look, communicate clearly what Austin Wright does and the core values of the business.

It makes our task much easier when the client can provide all of the content in one go and Mark worked with Sarah Sheasby of The Story Shed to do just that.

Having previously designed the logo, we then decided on a complementary colour palette for the site. A little bit of creativity was required to prevent the site looking text heavy, so we made a simple ‘Hotspot’ graphic for the Blueprint For Change section. On the About page, we used a Toggle block for additional text.

We sourced suitable images for the headers for each page (always an absorbing task) and there were only a few minor text amendments once the design was completed. All in all, a very satisfactory project to work on.

Artist’s website

David Bartlett artists website

It was a real pleasure to work on creating this website for the artist, David Bartlett.

The brief was for an online catalogue of David’s work, divided up into several galleries, in a clear and uncluttered format. The website is a record of his life’s work, from his student days to the present. In David’s words:

It takes visitors on a gallery tour through a selection of a lifetime’s art output, where the function of my art practice, has been to chart life’s journey: sensory, emotional and intellectual

Please do have a look at the site – we honestly love the art. It was a challenge to find the best way to create the galleries. After trying several plugins and different options we finally opted for a simple approach to displaying the images. In discussion with David, we divided the work up into three main periods, each with sub-galleries. The page shows a selection of images, appearing as you would view them on the wall in an exhibition, with each image opening in a lightbox for closer viewing.

WHAT IS A RESPONSIVE WEBSITE ANYWAY?

Websites that automatically reflow and adapt to the screen size they are viewed on. We call these Responsive websites because whatever device they’re displayed on – Mobile, tablet or desktop. It will respond and alter its layout accordingly.
