As you can tell by the title, simorkadesigns.info received a much needed face lift. My first blog post is dedicated to the new features, and to introduce whats in store for Simorka Designs.
So why the change?
Great question! Over the past year I've gained great insight by using the site to show my work to clients, while keeping up on it's analytics. The trend I noticed was that people were having navigation problems, hell, I was having navigation problems! Nothing is more embarrassing than showing your work to an AD and getting stuck in a home page loop because the menu bar had a hover state instead of a one click drop down. It soon became clear that people were having trouble getting to the good stuff.
Whats new with the site and whats in store for the future?
I thought you'd never ask!
The main menu is much more direct. The site is now broken down into two categories, Illustration and Web. This makes it easier to access the different bodies of work across the site.
I've added new section headers that allow viewers to identify where they are on the site, while giving them a taste of what to expect.
New footer navigation helps visitors continue moving through the site without having to go back to a main menu.
Welcome to the biggest overhaul on the site: the new Feature Gallery. I am happy to announce The Gallery will be sharing industry news and artist spot lights, while remaining a space to showcase my latest work and give insight into my process.
So there you have it!
Go check out whats new, and enjoy free downloads peppered throughout the site.
