I made a website for Acock Associates Architects.
My job, in it's most basic form, is to make my clients work look as interesting and as strong as possible. Ninety nine percent of the time I do this using photography. This particular circumstance was a bit of an outlier.
It was obvious to everyone, both inside and outside the firm that the old website was long over due for an update. After a internal attempt to modernize the website found itself eternally on the low end of the priority list I pitched the idea, let me do it. While investment in the website had languished, Acock had several key strengths working for them.
1. Strong architectural work
2. Consistent investment in professional photography
Ultimately those two things made this entire process much easier. We focused on using the photographs, encouraging selection by visual and making the site look as clear as possible. The landing page showcases eight featured projects, and then various market categories are reachable via the menu bar.
Three days later, I had delivered a modern SquareSpace website that should serve them well for the foreseeable future. I'm quite proud to have built this, and happy to have been able to help my client. Funny thing is I completed their site not long after I just finished an update to mine. In many ways there are things about their's that I like better!
