A Website That Looks Like A Printed Portfolio

Hairstylist Kristan Serafino’s new website is made to look like a leather bound portfolio (here). Kinda cool. Keeps it simple at least.

  1. Nice, but has been around for literally years.
    Morten Laursen has had this in place for a very long time.

  2. Nice idea, I’ve seen that before and really like it. But I don’t like how it resized my window.

    Two big pet peeves with photo websites:
    1. Resizing my window. (I have it the size I want.)
    2. Playing music. (I have my own, thanks.)

  3. The first TV programs were a bit like cameras pointed at radio shows. They aren’t like this anymore. This site is a bit like a screen pointed at a book.

    Nuff said.

    Great work though.

  4. I like the simplicity of it. I have struggled with the desire to pack more and more content into my website. What I really need is an objective voice to tell me what to strip away. One thing I consistently hear from photo editors and art buyers is that the images are paramount. Everything else is basically clutter.

    Unfortunately, there are other things to think about, like search engine optimization, having a constant source of fresh content (a reason for people to return to the site), and outlets for stock sales.

    Getting the balance right can be tricky.

  5. It’s fun and doesn’t get in the way of seeing the images which is obviously the most important. But I just can’t get too far into a website that I can see the actual pixels because the image files are too small. I now it loads faster, but you still want a quality image.

    marc baptiste’s site has been like that for a while also, but without the outside of the book.
