The Challenge

Boston-based photographer and good friend Aaron Nevin was looking for an updated digital portfolio that would better highlight his work and personality.  

I designed a unique, highly usable site for Aaron with a minimal color palette and simple, refined navigation to keep the user’s focus on his work. We then migrated him from Squarespace into a WordPress CMS. The site was given a Special Kudos recognition by CSS Design Awards in December 2017.

Desktop Experience

Priority was to have Aaron’s work be front-and-center – my design called for larger areas of black and white, while using project color schemes to be brought in when applicable. Advanced animations such as scroll reveals, page loads and hover states were used to create a more engaging experience without sacrificing site performance.

Mobile Experience

The design utilizes the entire device viewport to retain the impactful experience, no matter what device you are viewing on. Again, significant importance was put on site performance to decrease bounce rate.

The Result

A best-in-class digital portfolio for Aaron to scale his business. Too much fun to design.
