Nick Clarke: Cabinet Maker and Designer

Nick Clarke is a cabinet maker running a small studio in Surrey. Actually NIck makes a lot more than cabinets, as a look at the site I developed for him shows.

I designed and developed a new site for Nick to showcase the remarkable variety of his work, from the most elaborate church furnishings to practical home shelving.

The site uses a dark colour palette, hinted with blue and gold, to allow the images of Nick's work to stand out. The site features a number of photo galleries, organised into categories and subcategories, highlighting Nick's work. The gallery uses a jQuery lightbox script to allow the full sized version of each image to be presented at the most appropriate orientation and size. Care was taken to select an elegant serif typeface appropriate for the tone of Nick's work. Eventually we settled on Calluna.

The site is integrated with the ExpressionEngine content management system, making it easy for Nick to add, edit and delete photo collections.
