Peak District Artisans website

Peak District Artisans

November 14, 2012

When I was approached by Peak District Artisans to create them a new website I jumped at the chance! Promoting creativity & local talent is something I really enjoy, so this particular project was an exciting prospect.

Peak District Artisans, based in & around the beautiful Derbyshire Peak District in England, are some of the very best professional fine artists, designers, makers & contemporary artisans in the country.  The website my team & I created for them offers each artist within the association the ability to create their own editable profile, to which they can upload their work, photographs & information, creating an ever changing online portfolio.

The news section of the site offers the group the ability to create events, news articles & promote any upcoming exhibitions. Visitors to the website are able to browse the artists alphabetically or by genre. They can also view the latest tweets from the PDA members & link to their social media networks.

I selected a fresh, pared down approach to the design with a soft colour palette created to place emphasis on the artists work & give definition to each separate category.

I think the final outcome looks fantastic & I have received some fantastic feedback from the Peak District Artisans.
