Adelaide based photographer Glenn Hawke wanted to update his website to better showcase his incredible photography.
The brief for this design was simple: large, image based, visual. We wanted to create an easy to navigate website that served to showcase the work of Glenn Hawke.
To do this we designed a website with a large scrolling banner at the top, taking up most of the page. This was customers are greeted on each page with a display of the photography quality and style of Glenn Hawke.
The make the most of this large banner we coded to allow for images to be full screen. To ensure navigation remained user friendly there is a stick navigation bar on mobile devices.
The banner also features a subtle down arrow, clicking on this will automatically scroll to the main content section of each page.
As this website is for photography, the inclusion of visually appealing and clear photo galleries was essential. We wanted to have large image thumbnails with high quality images. To allow the website to handle such a large volume of high res image files we incorporated Lazy Loading.
So that the display of photos in landscape or portrait would fit neatly into the gallery we coded a specialised sorting algorithm to sort the images by shape, allowing for consistent presentation.
Other features include:
- Mobile responsive them
- concrete5 version 8
- Contact Forms
- Testimonial blocks
Here's what Glenn Hawke had to say about the project and result:
"Ryan and Lelita of Mesuva Web Development are simply outstanding. Being in a creative environment as we are at our studio it was wonderful to have our visual idea come to life through their expertise. At no stage did they ever wish to compromise our vision – rather they enhanced it beautifully - I would highly recommend Mesuva Web development to any business or enterprise."
