FEATURED SITE: ISHMAEL.ORG
Ishmael is one of my all-time favorite books, so it was a dream come true to build a new website for the author Daniel Quinn!
The original site was over 20 years old and really needed a facelift, a major re-organization of content, and new features to easily to access that content.
This is one of the finest websites Pam and I have created in terms of beauty, ease of use and viewer engagement. We were especially pleased with how the animated “Ishmael eyes” video we created for the landing page turned out, and it was a relief to get all of Daniel’s writings, videos, images, etc… organized and archived properly. We had mounds of information to plow through, straighten up and figure out where to place it that made sense. I especially love the Inspired section as we got a chance to highlight some wonderful work that people created after reading Ishmael.
It’s funny when you finish a big project like this and people go to the site and it’s very easy and laid out well that it’s impossible to imagine what we started with to to get to here! I actually love doing this kind of stuff – turning chaos into order – it’s very satisfying. It also helped to have a fabulous client like Rennie to work with. She took on this massive project and we worked very closely together for months to make it all happen.
Take a few minutes to check the site out, and, if you haven’t met him already, find out more about Ishmael.
