By the very nature of her work, her website was going to be wordy! My challenge …
… to make a lot of words look attractive but easy to read.
By creating framed boxes and blocks of colour for the texts (keeping the largest texts a comfortable size and dark text on a white background), playing with fonts and interspersing some great images in-between the boxes (taken by professional photographer, Jacqui Dunbar), I feel confident that I was successful in achieving this mission… although it was a real challenge for me I have to be honest! Quite different from my usual websites for artists and designers, which tend to focus far more on images than words.
‘Julia did far more than design an interesting and dynamic website. Her design flair and insight helped me rethink how I present my work. The whole process was calm and thoughtful, allowing for ideas to emerge. Julia also gave me lots of good advice about my online profile and I am now well equipped to look after my website (with a little help if I need it). Thank you Julia.’
Thank you for the challenge Susan Elsley!
