The curious art of web design – A website for an artist.
Annabel is an accomplished artist based in Shipston on Stour, Warwickshire.
Annabel gave us an interesting challenge: To show her art work without cropping any of it, without reducing its size so much that you lose the detail but for it all to be displayed without the user having to scroll down too much!
After much deliberation we decided to use an accordion approach for her home page and a masonry layout for her different galleries. For the homepage this meant that we could display the full image but only show a small part of it until the user hovers over it whereapon the full image is exposed.
We also used a plug-in to compress all the images which helps when loading.
