Alex Echo is an American UK-based artist, with a reputation for using unique perspectives and palates of colour to create complex and extraordinary works of contemporary art.
Alex is constantly pushing the boundaries in the art world, which made this a very special project for us. Our objective was to create a completely unique and eye-catching website, using a very different style to the layouts commonly found on the internet.
How We Delivered
We sat down with Alex to understand his needs and requirements in a new website, and to familiarise ourselves with his unique style of work. It quickly became clear that the website needed to promote Alex’s work in an interesting and intriguing way, clearly showcasing his unique talents and contemporary artwork. We explored and implemented ways to do justice to Alex’s work via the website, with results including a lightbox and Henburn Gallery effect.
Because art is a very personal endeavour, an important element of the website was the integration of a blog. This allows the user to understand some of the inspirations and drivers behind Alex’s approach to his artwork, and to connect with the artist via comments and social media sharing.
It was also important that the website had an easy-to-use content management system that would allow Alex and his team to create and update website content quickly and easily.
The New Website
Alex Echo’s new website was an extremely exciting project for us, and the results are stunning. The use of motion and colour, and the innovative layout all combine with a rich set of features to deliver a website that showcases the best of Alex’s work.
Features in the Alex Echo website include:
- Henburn Gallery effect
- Right-side menu for navigation
- Mobile responsive
- Intuitive and simple content management system.
