Pippa Hill Animal Sculpture
Pippa Hill is a Dorset artist who specialises in animal sculpture. She is a professional artist and so it was really important that her online presence perfectly represented her professional reputation. I built Pippa a portfolio website that shows off her works in the very best light and which is a breeze to navigate. It’s since been converted to an eCommerce website so she can sell her sculptures directly from her website. Click the ‘See It Live‘ button to see the website and logo out in the wild…
A portfolio website is an online gallery of an artist’s works, organised into categories to make it really simple to gather similar types of works together in one page. So for example, if you wanted to only view hare sculptures that are made of brass, you just select those categories and that is what will display.
This makes for a great way to organise artworks and lets the visitor to the site see only what they want to. Of course, this also helps narrow down the works if there are very many of them on the site — now this portfolio website is also an e-Commerce site, the ability to gather only the types of artworks the visitor is interested in, will only encourage them to purchase — the easier it is to locate what they are looking for, the more likely they are to see the process through to payment.
Pippa’s portfolio is changing all the time so it was essential the website was designed in such a way that updating artworks, adding new pieces, tracking sales etc. is as simple and user-friendly as possible.
Here’s what Pippa said about my work:
“Matt was recommended to me as a website designer. He has done a brilliant site for me, even though I kept changing my mind and wanting extra. During this time I had a broken leg and he was happy to come to my house several times. I now count him as a friend, I trust him, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”
