With a completely custom backend, compelling design, and functionality, Gamewright got exactly what they wanted and nothing they didn't.
We are thrilled at the opportunity to create an excellent new site for Marshall Watson Interiors. By keeping true to their branding and the aethetics of their new book, we were able to create a responsive and elegant site to match the company's impressive body of work.
We created a custom portfolio for Marshall Watson that loads the main image in grid blocks, clickable to detail images with popovers that serve as a gallery.
Once you choose a project from Marshall Watson's main portfolio page, you get a variable grid of thumbnails set both as portrait and landscape, allowing you to scroll down to easily see all the image without using the gallery popover. This works well for users in a hurry or who want to get an overview.
Marshall Watson has gotten some seriously good press. We formulated a custom module to help them showcase their best citations. It works like their custom portfolio, but it focuses on showing spreads and individual pages from the magazines in which they are featured. As with all our work, the section is easily edited without the need for a confusing admin area.
Marshall Watson has his own lines of furnishings for sale at 3rd party sites. We enabled them to showcase them on his own site to more easily convert visitors into customers.
Marshall Watson's new site coincided with the publishing of his new book. We created a layout that worked in harmony with the artwork of the cover.
Mobile design is important. We preserved the style and unique branding for mobile and tablets so that visitors will get the sense of the Marshall Watson brand regardless of how they visit the site.
Kwame Alexander is a poet, educator and best selling author of 24 books. We designed his site to reflect the vibrant, fun aspects of his work.
Kwame's site has a long scrolling homepage with unique information but also links deeper into his site. We started with a hero graphic with a call to action, information about the author and more links below that.
Here we showcase Kwame's main areas of action - to book him for workshops and speaking appearances. Below that we have links to his works, events, and news. This encourages greater visitor interaction from the homepage.
Kwame has a complete gallery of photos on the gallery pages of his website but a simple gallery of thumbnails and popups allows visitors to get a quick glimpse of some from his homepage.
Here Kwame can feature and describe each of his books in detail with links to where to buy. Each entry is automatically added to the sub-navigation to the right, keeping navigation between his books easy and intuitive.
All good web design must have a plan for tablets and phones. We ensured that the image choice in the hero graphic would always show up in the right position regardless of screen size, and made the design of his mobile layouts were as unique to him as possible and branded to his particular aesthetic.
Chace Ruttenberg & Freedman, LLP thrives on solving their client's most complex legal problems. The firm delivers sophisticated, high-quality legal services in a responsive, personal and cost-effective manner. We built a claim engine into the website so that individuals can file a claim online.
Catie was one of our very first clients back in 2002. Her site has undergone many redesigns over the years and the content has grown during all that time. For her latest album she needed a clean, bright design to match the look of her latest release.
Aaron came to us with some specific artwork that needed a variable scaling full screen front page with multiple layers. His logo resizes independently from the background, leaving him on the couch in front. The site is a single scrolling page managed by multiple modules and widgets.
