A Subtle Art

A content focused site with sophisticated and clean lines, an online booking and payment system, front end post submission for an advice column and several other unique elements.

A Subtle Art contains a large number of articles and advice columns, so we wanted a clean and minimal design. The new site utilizes several design choices from the previous sites, such as the general color scheme.

Features

  • Users can submit questions from the front end of the site, purchase and book 1 on 1 client sessions and navigate the library of articles through searches and tags.
  • The site is designed to be useable on both desktop and mobile/tablets, featuring a fully responsive design.
  • The landing page features a large graphical header and a newsletter signup form. There is a rotating post list in the outro of the site, and recent comments, questions articles, and topics in the footer.

I have basic web developments skills myself and I wanted to have a high degree of participation in the expansion of my website. Not only that, but I needed someone who could see past the ceiling of skills I had - what I wanted was something I couldn't feature in my mind.

Jeff was able to take my needs and realize them in the design, as well as achieving an integrated design and development that I did not expect to find! He was very patient with my desire to be part of the process, he taught me how to navigate and maintain all parts of my site from the css to the html, starting from my very meager understanding of html.

I also want to mention that Jeff has a very high degree of integrity - he was extremely clear with what he could and couldn't do, and also made sure that what he could do met with my needs before we started. Then, as the project continued, we had regular check-ins to make sure that my vision was being accurately realized.

I look forward to hiring him again in the future in order to integrate a storefront on my site. Thanks so much Jeff!
