Little City Center for the Arts
Don’t let the diamond encrusted skulls scare you – it’s just one of the amazing pieces from Tarik Echols at Little City Center for the Arts. We just launched their new website and everyone here at Orbit is very happy with the way it turned out. My favorite part about this project is that I love the organization – for more than 20 years, Little City has provided children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to explore and expand their unique and creative talents, promoting a sense of accomplishment and empowerment through the arts.
Thanks to everyone for the great team effort in bringing this site to life. Brian created a seamless and sophisticated flash piece on the homepage that elegantly transitions through 8 or 9 art pieces. Jessica put all the pieces together for a pixel perfect experience and also integrated a great image function. Each time Little City makes a new page, they can easily add an image that dynamically populates with the student’s name and program – with no stress.
In terms of design – we wanted to accomplish a “gallery-like” feeling on each page to showcase the different artists’ work. As soon as I saw the bank of images they gave us I was totally inspired to go big. I love the scale of the art on the page – it really feels like a physical art gallery. We were so lucky that Little City could provide us with such awesome photos…that is what really made this site special. Check out the gallery pages from some of Little City’s very talented & exciting artists: Lori Couve, Charles Beinhoff, Tarik Echols, Peggy Brostrom, Harold Jefferies, & Brian Kaplan.
