Portraits in Pastels
Portraits in pastels is an online gallery for artist Sue Smith. I was tasked with creating a web presence for Sue to showcase her work, give people information through a small biography and for people to be able to contact her through the site. In the gallery section of the site the images had to have large previews of each image as well as an overview of all the images. The site needed to be accessible through all modern web browsers and devices.
When designing the hierarchy of the site I wanted to keep it as simple as possible. In the end I used only three pages, which is a huge benefit as immediately the user can understand the layout of the pages within the site. When designing the visuals I wanted to make the site look as organic as possible, almost as if it had been drawn on the page, I achieved this through designing a textured header, hand drawn icons and using a hand written font.
