PatArt

PatArt

PatArt is a one-page website project I designed and built for a local artist. The site is built with WordPress and uses the Underscores starter theme to allow me to code the project from near scratch.

The design is intended to be super minimalist with the website’s functionality helping display the art in an interesting and innovative way.

I designed the project in Balsamiq mockups. The idea was to create a minimalist showcase for the artist’s work. The design is not meant to distract from the artist’s work, but the functionality in the finished website helps bring it to life.

The homepage has a few useful pieces of functionality to help bring the artist’s work to life.

First, the solitary easel visible above the fold has a piece of jQuery functionality that allows the user to flip the page to other pieces of artwork.

The featured gallery has a sunrise and sunset theme, with the images moving across the screen as the sun rises and falls. The slider buttons hopefully make it clear whether the user can make the sun rise or fall.

And finally the bottom gallery uses fancy box to allow the user to open the images in a larger frame.
