Created in conjunction with Design Room Cornwall, this site for Art Eye Creative Consultancy has a high end brochure feel with rich magazine style layouts.
The brief was quite demanding with requirements appropriate to the market in which ArtEye operates, vibrant magazine-style layouts, lots of portfolios and case studies, artists directory, a members area with paid subscriptions, premium content, client preferences and access to consultancy services, amongst others. The end result has been very well received and is growing to be a terrific resource in addition to being a superb brochure for ArtEye.
To achieve the magazine style layouts while still retaining a super-intuitive admin user interface a number of 'widgets' for the editors were developed that allow a variety of content wrappers to be inserted into single editor instances that can then be configured and styled to achieve the complex layouts required. It means that essentially the page layouts can be created on the fly inside the editors by an admin user without any need for multiple templates, or complex editor setups. The site uses the mikesimagination.net-developed modular content management system (CMS) and hence is well placed to accommodate updates and changes for years into the future with minimal overheads as the business evolves.
