Website Redesign: Sozo Gallery

I am so proud of the good work that friend and client Hannah Blanton has done at Sozo Gallery. We created a brand and small website when Hannah opened Sozo in 2013, and after much growth, it was time to refresh the website with a new, mobile-friendly design that made room for additional image galleries.

Sozo Gallery's homepage features a slideshow of their new, favorite works.

Hannah is a consummate philanthropist and community organizer, and we share some of those projects on a "Community" page, as well as a gallery of press clippings.

A new Artists page provides an intuitive way to browse the gallery's twenty artists.

A lot of the work in putting together a new website is in the tedious organization of images and content details. Many thanks to new Gallery Manager Sara Frances Koontz for her diligent and precise management of the site's implementation.

Wendy Bilas

I've been working with Artist Wendy Bilas to produce some marketing materials, ads, and a new website (still in the works). It is always an honor to help present the work of incredibly talented artists, especially one as kind and gracious as Wendy.

New Website: Lauren Jones Worth

Lauren Jones Worth is an artist from Greensboro, NC, who creates stunningly detailed mixed media works. I designed a site for Lauren several years ago using Squarespace and have redesigned it this spring with an updated template that allows her for flexibility for showcasing her new line of pillows and glass-topped tables. See Lauren's new site here.

New Website: Ashley Sellner

This new site for Charlotte artist Ashley Sellner provides a space for her to showcase her current painting works, as well as a portfolio for her commercial photography business.

The site features galleries for painting works and photography projects, as well as a blog. See Ashley's site here.

Effortless Entertaining

My client, DeeDee Dalrymple, has gracious entertaining FIGURED (!) OUT (!)  and she's working her wisdom into a new book due for release this summer. DeeDee has come up with a step-by-step guide for welcoming guests into our homes graciously and painlessly, and I'm so happy to be helping her share her prowess. 

Lisa Rubenson is our editor. Ashley Sellner is our photographer. So, of course, they'll make this project effortless. Or nearly.
