I recently finished making this website for my very talented photographer friend Dru Donovan.
I’ve always enjoyed simple, minimal designs, and with Dru, I finally got a chance to really go there with one of my own. The site is monochrome, showcasing a single portfolio for now, but with the ability to show more as time goes on.
The admin interface is probably what I’m most proud of — the part where Dru manages portfolios and such — but you’ll just have to take me on my word there since, you know, only admins allowed.
It was really fun working with a good friend who shares a similar aesthetic, and who’s work most certainly deserved showcasing.
Nerd notes: The site is built with Rails, and hosted by Heroku. There’s a little bit of jQuery going on in the portfolio navigation. Files are hosted on Amazon S3, via the stalwart Paperclip gem. Hooray for awesome tools that just work.
