"THE TEAM AT RADE HAVE ONCE AGAIN RISEN TO THE CHALLENGE OF PRODUCING A SITE THAT IS EYE CATCHING AND USER-FRIENDLY"
Rade developed Nick’s last website and he was so pleased with it, five years later he invited us to rebuild it. A key element of the project was to produce a website that had not only the impact needed to show Nick’s photography at its very best, but one which was straightforward to update and which would allow for a constant feed of images from the relentless schedule of work he undertakes.
We created an eye-catching, responsive design but also added some interesting features to the site that reveal some of Nick’s activity behind-the-scenes as well as a timeline that shows off historical work going back to the 1990s!
The site was developed using the open-source Umbraco content management system. Umbraco offers the perfect mix of a well-appointed CMS with the flexibility to allow us to create custom features, such as the timeline. The responsive design ensures mobile users can enjoy viewing Nick’s photographs with easy navigation and a clean, simple interface. The minimalist design aims not to steal the show but instead allow the pictures to do the talking. The use of a bold,‘masonry-style’ homepage layout and Instagram feeds show off work that is hot off the press and some more candid images of Nick at work behind the scenes. The result is a site that gives Nick the optimum mix of portfolio space and fast-moving social sharing.
