Col Sim Photography


Project Brief

  • A WordPress / WooCommerce website built from scratch.

  • Col’s existing website failed to portray his photography efficiently and cleanly and had affected his ability to sell his prints. While his imagery was stunning, its unorganised display was a detriment to the websites visual impact.

  • As a professional photographer, Col Sim wanted a website that could portray his talents to the public in the most effective way possible. In addition, he wanted a phenomenal homepage that showcased his range of services.

  • Col wanted a minimal and light design so the focus would be on the photography rather than the layout. He also wanted to improve his SEO.

Design Process

  • The project started in January 2021, and began by looking at award style websites as a basic reference idea to help us create minimal front page designs.

  • Next, we did extensive research on service design, and mapped out user journey and behaviour with the client to ensure the design was in line with the client’s vision.

  • Once the research was completed, we started off by created four options for the home page, along with a mood board to fully understand what the client wanted.

  • Once the home page and the colour scheme wer finalised, the rest of the design was modelled to be simple and elegant to maximise user experience. The project was finished in 16 weeks.

  • Since the start of this project, we have continued to maintain the website in its entirety and add new features for Col whenever he has needed them.

Why we enjoyed doing this project

Thanks to Col's line of work, we were able to choose the right images for the website from a plethora of high-quality content. Since we often have to rely on stock images, this was a refreshing change.
