At LOUDSPARKS, we’ve been fortunate to work with amazing photographers and artists. In every project, we’ve started with the belief that the best design gets out of the user’s way and that you can craft unforgettable portfolios by keeping things simple and obsessing over the details.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce that we’re launching ZenPhotoThemes.
The natural next step for LOUDSSPARKS is to commit our focus to helping as many creatives as possible, and through ZenPhotoThemes is how we hope to achive this. Will pour our passion into developing high end themes that any artist can benefit from.
We invite you to join and grow together!
Sasha and Darren Bay (and yes, they are twins) are some of New York's finest hairstylists. They came to us through Paul Steven's referral, since they loved his website, and wanted to also push their image to be on par with the quality of their work.
We created a design that really puts their creativity in your face, through use of full screen images and subtle animations. It stands out as an elegant glamour website and gets their great fashion sense across.
The design won recognition through BestWebDesignAward.com and was also featured on Creattica.
Steven Paul is a passionate New York fashion photographer. He loved our work on churchboutique.com and wanted a similar design to help present his work at a top professional level.
We created a design that stands on his own. A design that stays bold, elegant and to the point with clean navigation and smooth and intuitive transitions. It is the online equivalent of the elevator pitch, convincing in less then 12 seconds he is a professional, trustworthy Fashion Photographer.
We were really happy to receive recognition for the quality of the design through an award by DesignLicks.com
We wanted to create an admin system that freed the artist from having to rely on the designer to keep his site updated.
After studying some of the already popular systems (like wordpress) we decided to come up with our own custom built solution that would really fit the portfolio websites.
You can manage pages / content / galleries with ease, using intuitive drag & drop for reordering and multi-file upload for time saving and efficiency.
We took SEO under high consideration, each image uploaded is renamed and tagged with relevant keywords. It comes straight with Google Analytics integration and other SEO settings (ex: html5 micro-data). All our projects hit top page rankings for artist names and location. (ex: "Steven Paul New York")
Also for each image server automatically creates multiple size versions, creating most effective bandwidth transfer and fastest load times.
The system is built with the modern BackBone.js framework, and was thought as an App, making everything as interactive and intuitive as possible.
Auro was built for the most comfortable browsing experience, and we suggest using it as a selected works portfolio. It can work together with a clean WordPress blog presenting more details of your work and of yourself. Building a powerful and focused web presence.
