This project allowed us to stretch our imagination and come up with some very unique solutions to some very challenging problems. Being an artist himself, Tim Herbst had very high standards for the design and layout of his website. Our main goals were to let the art speak for itself and to allow site visitors to feel like they got to know the artist on a personal level. To do this, we created a rotating slideshow on the homepage and incorporated quotes by the artist with each image. We included a JEMSU-made video where Herbst guides you through his process, and a blog feed right on the main page to engage people in his current work.
For the e-commerce portion of the site, we designed and built a custom sorting feature with a wide variety of filters. Herbst could select which features apply to each product as he adds them, and they will automatically sort when those options are selected.
