David Bier, Storybook Photography, is an approachable and very talented high-end children’s photographer. David creates magical photography experiences for families and as such wanted to avoid the typical portfolio style photography website. Our brief was to create a stunning online experience that would stop visitors in their tracks: engaging, exciting and masculine all at the same time. I reckon we’ve pulled this off and then some…
Our solution is a very long single page website. Not only are these stunning but they are very easy to use as the visitor just interacts with the initial page and does not have to decide “where to go next” or worry about additional pages loading. These longer pages do need to be carefully designed and coded to ensure the perfect balance between usability and the wow factor.
The copy concept for the website is very story-book like and we wanted the design to show the journey, just as much as reading the words. We’ve hand -drawn the illustrations above to compliment the branding and to match the style of the illustrations that were provided as part of the brief.
Additional illustrations were required as we wanted to use some in the actual copy (think picture book – see above) and the copy demanded more imagery relating to safari and exploration.
Once built the website will be very interactive with pop-up videos and scrolling portfolio sections (and more!). We’ll be building a fully integrated blog which will allow David to increase his reach and visibility on search engines as well as providing an area on the website where photography work can be showcased. Finally we have an email campaign to design and build.
