6. Jonathan De villiers

Jonathan often works within the fields of editorial or fashion photography while exploring the parameters, and exploiting the conventions of the medium. We made a website that aimed to directly compliment his original, idiosyncratic approach. The design was, purposefully, neither commercial nor conventional. Menus and traditional navigation were disregarded. Projects were instead accessible through a metronomic, continuous slideshow of key images. These images are featured at alternate, non-uniform sizes to accentuate the wide-range of conceptual approaches and subject matter within the work. Individual project details and other navigation appear when the user rolls-over the image. In contrast to the main index, each project was presented as a complete work rather than single images. The site gives the refined experience and subtleties of a Flash-based site but was built completely in HTML. This allows for increased accessibility and allows the site to operate on multiple platforms including the iPhone.
