Making & Gathering

For a new Heath feature, I developed a newsletter template, webpage, and ultimately reworked the existing gallery viewer to best tell the behind-the-scenes stories of the products carried at Heath.

In developing a newsletter to share the ‘Making & Gathering’ stories, I advocated strongly to create a home on the Heath website where the stories could live on beyond the inbox. That led to a redesign of the existing gallery viewer, and that led to implementing the new thumbnail design in many places, including on the product pages.

The existing gallery viewer was a full screen modal window that entirely blocked the page below, making it tricky to exit from. If images were too wide (or screens too narrow), the navigation arrows wouldn’t appear on screen and it would look less like a gallery and more like a singular static image.

Most troubling was its maximum image size of 458px, which simply doesn’t do justice to most content. Because it didn’t include thumbnails, any sort of image preview, or the ability to view the gallery contents in a non-linear way, most of the images and videos after the 3rd slide were never seen, and the browsing experience was sub-par.

Heath Ceramics Website Updates

Small development projects (newsletter signup dialog box and integrated social media feed) to freshen the website and improve engagement with customers.

Boiler Room Website Design

An incredibly fast project, undertaken to give a digital home to an event and gallery space.

Tile Makes the Room Website Design

To coordinate with the launch of Tile Makes the Room, we pulled together a simple website to yes, sell the book, but also function as the home base for a new channel of Heath-related content. Think tile projects and interiors that don't strictly include Heath tile.

This is a unique website which will require a more modern browser to work!
