Eyesbound Portfolio Website by Julia Hell

Home > Winners > #45698


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Eyesbound

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Portfolio Website

INSPIRATION:
The main inspiration came through the photographers imagery. He focuses on architecture and nature motifs with a unique point of view. In preparation for the design, I had a look at several portfolio websites to get a best practice overview. I realized, that the information about the photographer often seems more important than the images. So I focused on the images as a key element.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The design focuses on the strong imagery of the photographer and emphasizes this by using full screen images as a main detail. The navigation elements are kept simple and it is possible to hide them, so the images will not be covered by them. The typographic logo is displayed in full screen mode as well but scales down and transparentizes. In order to set the focus on the images, the only used colors are black and white.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The website can be operated by mouse and keyboard, using arrow keys inside modern browsers. The navigation structure is kept simple, without too many sub pages to the flow flat and the user interested.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in May 2014 in Berlin and went live in August 2014. Since then minor iterations are still in progress to present day.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The web design was created in Adobe Photoshop, Realization Tools: Drupal 7, CSS 3, HTML 5, jQuery

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Responsive web page with always-fullscreen imagery and fullscreen mode in supported browsers.

TAGS:
Clean, Easy-to-use, Photography, Simple, Website, Web Design, Portfolio

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I browsed several photographers portfolio websites, both, of famous and not yet discovered photographers and filtered design and layout wise for similarities and differences. Many portfolio pages do not have full screen options. I started to focus on the works. My client does not use his own name to publish his photos, we created sort of a brand for the photos. Then I started to look at fashion, furniture and lifestyle brands. They all put the emphasis on the product. In our case the photography becomes the product, at least presentation wise.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to find a way to display photography online in a new and unseen way. To do so I needed the full screen mode. The technical realization happened to be difficult, since the website is responsive. It does not work on every browser, older browsers do not support the fullscreen mode.
