How oelaiho started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
I am a visual artist. Website name is osatheartist.com
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I paint in acrylic and other mixed media. Target audience are art collectors, galleries and museums.
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
Art & Design
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
I want a simple and minimal design. A design that speak to high quality art, yet original, somewhat scrappy. Remember my primary audience are art collectors, institutions and museums so please keep this in mind, but by no means let that limit your your creativity. The design should showcase the art, and not conflict with it. I would also like you to please add a design element that makes people question if I am Nigeria/African (I am).
I am looking for a designer who can infer my personality/values from my art and design a website that continues that narrative. I will be looking for designs with unique and thoughtful elements down to the icons used for pagination.
Make use of the "O." logo from my current website.
Please make sure my name is on the homepage: Osa Elaiho
Please try and also use the phrase "Osa is a Nigerian artist currently residing in United States"
Please include designs for the homepage, a browse page and a single image view. Can I have the web version and mobile version of above?
Homepage: I would like the viewer to instantly get a sense of who i am and what style of painting. The homepage should have clear navigation elements in a unique and creative way. The navigation links are: Home, Art, Press, Blog, Contact.
Browse/Category page: This is the page that gets served when a user clicks on the "Art" link from the homepage. This page will show my art in thumbnails (with the option to toggle between grid and list) The page should not overwhelm users with endless scrolling (i have over 130 images of my original art)
Single image page: this page will show the full image as well as details of the paintings (name, dimensions, year, and a narrative about the painting). Please include a very clear visual way for the viewer to go back to the category page of the images.
What to avoid
** UPDATE: Yes, the homepage should not require the user to scroll. I am getting quite a few submissions that have this so updating the brief in respect of your time. **
I want a custom and original design. I will immediately decline any designs that are hybrids of a template (e.g. Wordpress). I recommend you use a sample of my art, which have high resolution from this share: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/78243okc…hBJWa?dl=0
** The first few submissions show one page (homepage). Although the brief is marked for 2 pages, I will be working with the winner to create additional pages, with a limited budget though. Please submit designs for the homepage, the category page AND a single image page **
** Although, specify the use of no stock images, some submissions have them. Please avoid them **
