The clean, minimal and sensible style of Lever Architecture's designs called for exactly that in a website. Images within a slideshow are maximized on the homepage for high impact upon first view, text and navigation are simple in all black or gray, and the project gallery fades on in sequence to a clean grid with subtle rollover states. Project pages allow the image to read large with an elegant slider for image selection, and text can be accessed if desired by a simple click/touch. The site is responsive, resizing to all mobile formats while maintaining the clean, minimal feel. In short: Make it easy for the viewer. It's all about showing the work.
JH Kelly Website
JH Kelly was in need of a major overhaul to their previous website both organizationally and from a design standpoint. Working closely with project/content manager Winningham Strategies and developer Media Aktive, a well-organized and thoughtfully designed site was delivered to this 1000+ employee, fourth-generation, family-owned mechanical contractor headquartered in the Northwest. The homepage allows the viewer to enter into one of three silos - Industrial Construction, Commercial Mechanical, or Fabrication - while the interior pages are designed to share a vast amount of information with minimal need to scroll down the page. Features include an interactive timeline of their history, benchmarking infographics, gallery and detailed project pages for 100+ projects across 20+ sectors, and a homepage full-screen black-and-white image of JH Kelly team members - the heart of their company - with a personalized shamrock link to their internal access sites. The site is responsive, resizing to all mobile formats while maintaining the clear, thoughtful design.
Website Design Direction
Kelly Perso Design has provided design direction for a number of websites, from suggesting color palettes and layouts to working within templates already selected by clients and their developers, or in some cases providing a single feature page design.
In addition to website design and direction, Kelly Perso Design creates a wide variety of graphics for websites including rotating homepage graphics, banner ads, animated gifs, and promotional e-blast graphics.
Winningham Construction Website
Portland-based residential contractor Terry Winningham needed an updated site that could show his strong portfolio of new work in a style that complemented his fine craftsmanship. Once the final photography is completed, the site will be live for viewing.
Cooper Mountain Vineyards Website
Working closely with developer Ioan Fodor of Media Aktive, this website for Cooper Mountain Vineyards was designed to be minimal while celebrating the artisan community. The site navigation is inspired by the company's logo and the green color palette supports their commitment to sustainability through organic and biodynamic farming.
