An artist website for a media artist who needed a site that would serve both as a full archive of all his work that is easy to navigate and provides quick access to information without looking academic. The site also needed to subtly reflect the bold work of the artist.
A new quarterly online literary magazine, that has as it’s “front cover” an artist film. The page opens with the film and then via the logo you can access the table of contents and the writing, while the film continues to play in the background without interruption.

The Estate of Marek Szwarc, a recently re-discovered, yet during his lifetime prominent Polish artist, approached me to create an impressionistic online presence of his work. The idea was to give a visitor to the site the feeling of looking through a precious book of Szwarc’s work. Rather than trying to show all of Szwarc’s oeuvre we decided to feature a carefully curated selection of works in order tell more of a story about Szwarc’s artistic arch. The site also needed to be in English and French make it more accessible.
John, an established commerical product photographer needed to establish a new web presence to promote his architectural photography. The site needed to have an entirely different feel from his previous website, it needed present the images in superb quality, provide an opportunity to purchase images off the site, whil at the same time protecting the images from being downloaded illegially. We decided to use the professional photographer platform Photoshelter which offers all of these functions, tweak it to meet our aesthetic goals and fill it up to the rim with SEO goodness.
As a multidisciplinary artist who often is showing her work on the go in the notoriously impatient art world, Raphaele needed a site that would look good on tablet and mobile and give viewers an instant visual introduction to her diverse and project-based work. Additionally, she needed a way of presenting the many different aspects that go into a project while keeping the design clean and elegant.
A friend and fellow entrepreneur, Catherine wanted to start an online e-commerce business for young collectors that would feature one artist per month. The site needed to be clean, give potential buyers a quick and welcoming introduction to the selected artist’s work, give them the opportunity to browse past artists, provide an easy way of taking the conversation offline and into the studio, while also making it easy purchase the art work. Catherine wanted the site to stand apart from other e-commerce art site by focusing on a well curated group of artist she personally admires and offering the visitor the opportunity to build a relationship to the art and the artist rather than treating the art as a commodity. It also needed to be fun.
