Alan Tabor is one of London's most experienced Fine Art photographers, and wanted a website which would cover not only his Fine Art photography, but other areas of interest, as a way of introducing current and potential clients to his range and versatility.
We designed and built unique, animated Flash galleries, with a 'sweeping' motion carrying each image into the central display palette. The entire site is housed within a distinctive, scaleable 'widescreen' format, and combines style and usability to maximum effect.
Simon Ray Indian & Islamic Art
With its elegant, intuitive structure and easy navigation, there was no pressing reason to dramatically alter the appearance of Simon Ray's website when we considered its upgrade.
However, some time having passed since the launch of the previous iteration, we felt we could add some width, structural formality and greater functionality, and all of these ideas have been successfully integrated into the presentation.
The Forgotten Parks
The Frankfurt Zoological Society is a leading player in global conservation management, and their Forgotten Parks project in Democratic Republic of Congo required a strong online presence to enhance its fundraising profile.
Delivery of news modules, stories and blog items, slideshows and videos were central requirements within a highly organised, flexible architecture. Based on our InSitu Content Management System, the website delivers a wide variety of information to its audience, and is augmented by our bespoke HTML email system, social network links and archive material.
Colin Bowles has established a global reputation as a leader in his field, of mounting and restoration of works of art, and for his installation expertise. He wanted his website to convey a range of images and detail about the kind of work he and his colleagues carry out.
Elegant information pages, with 'lightbox'-style popups and carefully arranged text deliver the required impression with restrained simplicity.
We were fortunate to be able to work with photographer Matt Pia on this project, and his images greatly enhance the presentation.
Oliver Forge Brendan Lynch
Oliver Forge and Brendan Lynch deal in classical antiquities and Indian art from a discreet premises in London's St James's.
We built a very simple, elegant site to display to two sides of the business, with switchable modules for the addition of exhibition material
An extensive archive, and additional 'page-turner' plugins for online catalogues complete the site as a year-round marketing tool.
Sam Fogg is one of the world's leading specialists in Medieval Art. His website needed to reflect the full range of items in which he deals, and we were also asked to imbue the site with a sense of movement.
Extensive category dropdowns lead to carousel galleries, which in turn link to 'show/hide' pages of multiple images, especially formatted for printing.
The website also includes a large exhibition archive, means of purchasing catalogues, and a Press section.
Knapton & Rasti Asian Art
Chris Knapton and Nader Rasti were among our earliest clients, and we are pleased to continue working with them more than ten years on.
Their annual cycle takes in several large fairs and exhibitions, but is always focused on their own autumn publication and accompanying exhibition.
Consequently, the website is now set up to display each year's catalogue in full, with long galleries and multiple images for each item. An archive extends back as far as 2003.
Berwald Oriental Art
John Berwald deals out of a beautiful gallery in London's Mayfair art district. He asked us for a major overhaul on his existing website.
We implemented simple, ordered galleries, enhanced with some JQuery 'sliders', and a very attractive treatment of typefaces.
Gallery pages link to printable descriptions and images, and John also has use of a switchable Fairs/Exhibitions page, plus a large Google map to help new clients locate the gallery.
