Blueflamingo are efficient, industrious and imaginative
A new website for an international artist
Dan Schlesinger is an acclaimed fine artist whose innovative works are prized by collectors in England, the United States and Japan and elsewhere around the globe. He is well known in Japan as the illustrator and cover designer of all six books of the Japanese edition on the Harry Potter series. We were excited when he approached us for his new website.
We wanted to show Dan’s paintings together on the same page. As the paintings are all different sizes this created quite a challenge. However by fixing the width but not the height of the images, and using this innovative ‘masonry’ layout, we were able to achieve the effect we wanted.
Let the paintings do the talking
We kept the design as minimal as possible to allow the paintings to take centre stage. It was a challenge to structure nearly 1,000 paintings into 20 categories and allow visitors to easily locate (and buy) the ones that jumped out at them.
