Chihiro Gompei is a London Based Artist who works with Textiles. Her works are playful, yet poignant and visceral.
Chi wanted a homepage which caught her style and had a sense of being a special, virtual space which would link through to a portfolio of her works. She also needed control over her site, to be able to update the homepage and also manage her own projects - but of course an artists budget does not allow for a custom built back-end. I developed the home and about pages as a custom Wordpress theme, allowing Chi to update the images, the line layered over them and the text. The portfolio part of her site is simply a cargo collective which she put together and I matched the typeface. Through this use of Wordpress and Cargo, Chi has full control over her site on a minimal budget, and a wonderful, custom webpage which communicates her art.
