Christine Huve Interior Design
web design & development

Christine needed a simple site to show her interior design work. As I went through her images, I was struck by some of her magnificent wall paper choices. I used one as a banner to establish the main look of the site and I really like how it unifies all the pages. I liked the idea of a home page slideshow with full screen images but adapting full screen to different devices is challenging. It's often handled clumsily on tall screens by cropping the sides of the images but often the focus of an image isn't in the center and important information is lost. I invented an algorithm that allows you to predefine a focus point for each image in the slideshow and then automatically works out how to crop and shift the image to one side or the other to fit the particular device being used. For me attention to these kinds of details makes all the difference in the feel of a site.
