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.

Website: Grier's Gallery

My inspiring friend and client Hannah Blanton launched a powerful new project in November 2014, a way to honor the life of her young friend Grier Christenbury and to grace hospitalized children with enriching art experiences. Grier's Gallery is now both a gallery space at Charlotte's Novant Hemby Children's Hospital and an monthly art program that brings a guest artist to Hemby (and Blume Pediatric Oncology Clinic) to work with patients to express themselves through an art project. 

In addition to a website for Grier's Gallery, I helped design a window display for Sozo Gallery where Hannah and collaborator Trish Rohr celebrate the launch of Grier's Gallery in November.

Congrats, Sozo!

We celebrated the grand opening of Sozo Gallery tonight with a reception featuring the work of Robert Langford. Congratulations are in order for gallery owner/director Hannah Blanton, artist Robert Langford, and Visual Display Artist Kathryn Godwin who created a stunning window design.

Art Show Marketing: Robert Langford at Sozo Gallery

Congratulations to Hannah Blanton on the opening of Sozo Gallery, which will open tomorrow with a reception for Robert Langford, one of my favorite artists.  We created this 4x6 invitation card to supplement Hannah's social media and email marketing efforts.
