May Andersen May Andersen: Homepage

As part of our work building dynamic, CMS-powered websites for artists & creatives, we built out a lush portfolio site for model and artist May Andersen.

The site includes photography from her modelling portfolio, her own photography and artwork, as well as essays and a blog. In addition to the standard CMS backend for content updates and edits, we spliced in photos from Andersen’s instagram feed, leveraging the ease and inclusiveness of this popular social network.

To complete the aesthetic, we are using custom pro fonts from the typekit service and full bleed browser width photos to provide a unique presence and immersive experience.

Ketuv offers a fine arts option for couples seeking Ketubahs (documents formalizing a marriage under Jewish law). Led by dynamic co-founders Arielle and Maya, Ketuv offers unique opportunities for artists and a one-of-a-kind artwork and document for couples.

Ketuv reached out to Social Ink to analyze their site and offer a consultation regarding their user interface, particularly on the homepage and blog. After a thorough review, we suggested opening up the site with better margins and more space, making typography changes, and implementing a cascading grid of products, among other refinements.

Following up on our review, we massaged the site’s existing code to implement the changes and revitalize the site.
