Dumay Gorham Designs, LLC

by Katie Sasser

Back Story

Dumay Gorham Designs, LLC, is a Wilmington, NC-based artist who utilizes a variety of metals and finishing techniques to make metal sculptures. The client asked Sage Island to build a website that displayed work, described the creation process, and solicited new commissions.

Challenge

The client needed a website that would display the artwork prominently without retracting from it. The website also had to inform users about both the artist and his work.

Solution

Rotating carousel

Our programming team created a rotating carousel at the bottom of each page displaying a selection of the artist’s work.

Homepage imagery

Our designers created an image-heavy homepage to draw users in and give them an immediate reflection of the client’s portfolio.

Homepage calls-to-action

The website had a simple goal of directing visitors to view the artist’s work, so we created a prominent call-to-action on the homepage funneling website visitors to the gallery.

Strategic copywriting

Our marketing team created homepage messaging that used creative language to draw in visitors and specific search terms to improve the page’s SEO.
