Making It Modern with Pictures and Prose

This could be for me, the web site I most enjoyed creating. It is for an artist/writer whose work I find intriguing with its swirls, its innuendoes, and its modern stance. The artist -- Sarah Wilkinson -- and I worked very closely together to come up with a design that would properly anchor her work, while reflecting its modern tone. Choosing the color palette was quite the challenge, but we both finally approved of our final scheme. Another delight for me was to create each page with a distinctive look. For instance, the geometric grid and precise placement of elements on her Welcome page. The grey backdrop for the Gallery thumbnails --- large enough to see. And when selected, displayed side by side is the image with Sarah's provocative prose. Also, the rectangles of different hues cascading down her Exhibits page, so that each event is part of the whole but stand apart. The boxes inside boxes look of the About and Contact pages.
