Newbury Fine Arts

I just completed the new site for Newbury Fine Arts, a gallery on Newbury Street in Boston MA (USA). The site, as all y site, is very simply set up. HTML with spry databases as the only "advanced" feature to make keeping incoming updates in order more easily. The original version this replaces was 775 megabytes large and the update is under 50 megabytes. Since the client wants to eventually make updated themselves, I feel that a simple file structure with easily understood names of files and dossiers is essential. Esthetically, it follows a clean, white/grey pallet that doesn't compete with the artwork.

Really nice, simple site, Vince. I like your approach where the site takes a definite back seat to the work. You made it easy to navigate. I wish more art sites were like this.

Thanks! I am all about making things easy to navigate and not overstating the technology. The said they wanted a nice clean set and for once they really meant it.
