Work in Progress Portfolio Layout
I like the simple grid layout of this design. Ive struggled with ideas for presentation as I feel this work will develop into more of a tangible object than online gallery. Perhaps the Gallery should be images of the printed photographs or exhibition views of the images how I would like them displayed.
When you click on an image it reverts to lightbox view which is great for seeing the images in more detail but you do lose the description which then only comes up in a faded black box. I would have liked the description to be beside the images like on my commercial website. This would mean having a seperate website again for commercial, MA Research and MA Practise. Perhaps something I need to look at doing..?
On further reflection with regards to layout I felt I wanted to give the viewer more of an experience whilst looking at the images. My work has started to parallel with hat of the museum and so I decided that the images should be of different sizes and positions to make you move around the screen in a similar way you would look at objects in the museum. There is still the same zoom function to get a closer up view of the work on smaller screens.
