Art+ Shanghai Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition, promotion, and development of contemporary art with a focus on unique artistic style and high quality artwork.
Art galleries require a very traditional and classical looking website, being modernists we had to take ourselves back in time for the design. The site has a considerable amount of large files including PDFs and high res images, optimization needed to be spot on. With large files came the issue of server storage setup and load speed. Our team managed to solve these crucial issues. In the end Art+ got the very website that they liked and will be in use for the next couple of years.
Classic design inspired by print and art. Focused on text readability. Main sections included Artist pages, Galleries, Smart Exhibitions and Blog.
Minimalistic Design, Quick Project Access, Company News Randomized Content \ Smart Portfolios \ Simple Blog
We built the exhibitions page to showcase upcoming events at the gallery, Artplus is able to upload new events before they took place using the back-end.
Exhibitions need plenty of crucial details such as address, time, and overview. For Artplus this also required us to buil a dedicated / editable gallery and artist biography summary. Image optimization was crucial.
We built the artist collection page to show artists works on name mouse over. This allowed visitors to quickly get a preview of art work without going into details.
The artist page we built allows Artplus to easily update and drop images into the artists gallery under this fully editable page.
We really enjoyed working on this project with ArtPlus Shanghai. Getting to visit their fabulous art gallery and learning art appreciation tips was icing on the cake. As with all our work, we learn from each other.
