L H Maloney’s poetry has long been loved by his friends and family. This new website was built to help him gain a wider readership.
In keeping with his love of the associated colors—and the beach—a sunset theme was requested. The focus was to be on the poems, and the client asked for big, bold images – and movement.
That’s what I created. The background is the image of a vibrant sunset, and the color scheme features varying shades of orange, with pops of black and white. The homepage dynamically displays the poem titles and associated photographs through a slider feature; just click any image to read the poem associated with it.
The homepage also features a large image of the poet, along with text that was provided by the client.
Big buttons make it easy to connect with the poet on his social media accounts, to sign up for the mailing list, and to share his work with others. These are important steps in growing his readership!
It’s also built to be easy for L H to log in and add his own poems and images. The site can easily expand as he adds new poems.
This site is visually very different from others I’ve designed and conveys its message through its close fit to the poet’s personality.
