Katherine Shearer is an Australian actor well known for her great artistic works both on screen and in theatre. Kate was looking for greater exposure to the world by having a portfolio where she could showcase her works to both producers and the public.
After Kate approached Handsome Creative, we started considering ways we could achieve her desired outcome. Luckily Kate had a huge supply of incredible photos and videos to work with. We proposed a site plan to show how the portfolio would work, then created a design mockup from which Katherine could get an idea on how the completed website will look.
Once the final mockup was agreed on, we set out to build the website. Throughout the whole process, we were in constant communication with Katherine so we could achieve an outcome she was happy with. As specialists in design, we could help guide her in the design process so she felt in control of what she wanted, while still maintaing the guiding principles and best practices of user interface design.
Throughout the development process we ensured the website worked perfectly responsively, ensuring it would look great on all portable devices.
I love my site, which I know will continue to evolve and be a great marketing tool for myself as a professional actor. It is beautiful, modern, classy and vibrant, visually arresting, without the clutter of other actors sites I’ve seen. Hire them, you won’t be disappointed!
Not only did we produce the website she desired, but we ensured that it adhered to the latest Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) standards, so her portfolio is search engine friendly and would achieve great organic search results on sites such as Google.
Lastly, we completed a whole array of site optimisations, so it would load quickly and give her visitors a positive experience. We then finalised everything by adding website analytics so Kate would always be given monthly reports about the performance of her portfolio.
“When I came to Handsome Creative, I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but I knew I wanted something that was not a usual cookie cutter actors site. John was patient as I was making decisions about getting my site done and was never pushy with an easy going and patient personality. John and Frank then guided me well, as I explained what I wanted, but with them taking control and giving great advice to what would work and what would not, giving me a professional, polished site I could never have built myself. Their decisions as web designers took the stress right out of my hands. Frank was so brilliant. He was the best person I could have had to build it for me. He was so super responsive to all my emails and queries, any time of day, always making me feel he cared about the site as much as I did! Well, I think he did. He was very personable, polite and a we had a lot of fun and he really got me.. Thank you Frank. My web angel! Thanks John and Handsome Creative. I love my site, which I know will continue to evolve and be a great marketing tool for myself as a professional actor. It is beautiful, modern, classy and vibrant, visually arresting, without the clutter of other actors sites I’ve seen. Hire them, you won’t be disappointed!”
