Project Description

Check out the site at: Mark Lovett Studio

Mark Lovett Studio is a fully responsive, eCommerce website that I created on the WordPress content management system to feature my figurative and portrait oil paintings. This is a ‘blog’ style site with loads of interesting articles displayed in excerpt format each with it’s own featured image.  The homepage features a custom  javascript powered,  graphic text display on top of the large painting images in the header slider. The first image in the slider features a moving artist’s paint brush, and the rest of the image have client testimonial text overlayed.

Pinterest was integrated into the site to enable the user to easily click an icon next to any image to automatically ‘pin’ the image on the user’s pinterest wall, which is excellent for SEO. All the images are sized , optimized, titled and tagged for optimal site speed and for SEO.  The site has an SEO plugin installed and configured, and integrated with Google & Bing Webmaster tools, Google+ and Google Analytics, and an xml sitemap was created.

Facebook Timeline and  scrolling Twitter widgets have been integrated in the footer and setup to auto post from the website. The palette was designed in greyed greens and white to produce an appealing foil for the oil painting images.
