Marina Roca Die Portfolio

About the project

Marina Roca Die is a spanish artist mainly focused on painting and drawing. We worked on creating a portfolio website to showcase her work. The most important element is the images and all interface elements work around them. The site can be viewed on any device and the navigation adapts to the device screen size. The website is built using Wordpress and it uses the default Wordpress Categories for the organisation of the projects.
The site is available at marinarocadie.com

Signatures by the artist

To give the website a personal feeling I requested the artist to create a signature that would be used on the header of the website.

We worked together until we arrived at a signature that represented the artist’s work and personality.

Color palette

Marina expressed her interest in using a pair of dark blue and dark red on the website. We created a color palette that works well for small decorative elements and makes text easy to read.

Navigation interaction

The main interaction in this website is the navigation. I created a central navigation that drops down from the top and exposes all projects and sections of the website. This kind of navigation is usually built with mouseover interactions, instead I chose to use a click-to-open system that feels less unpredictable and is consistent with the same navigation on mobile.
