This is a website design for an architect who is also an artist, writer, musician and composer—which is quite a range of expertise to clarify in one website. The client wanted his architecture practice to be highlighted but for the multi-disciplinary range of his work to be clear so that he could attract projects to which he is suited.

To create immediate engagement, we designed the homepage (below) to open with a brief but rich statement to be read in conjunction with a quietly changing slideshow of images of past projects. To reinforce what is different about this architect, this is followed by a quiet slideshow of statements expressing the architect’s philosophy.

The events page is set up to highlight upcoming events if there are any and default to the list of past events when there are no upcoming events:
