The End Result

Joseph Vorgity is a contemporary realist watercolorist and printmaker. He makes beautiful woodblock prints influencedby the American Precisionist Movement, the Arts and Craft Movement, and Japonisme. He was using one of our older templates, which wasn’t mobile-friendly and didn’t take advantage of our new fonts.

His original site was blue, and I thought this worked well to accentuate his work, but I chose a slightly greener blue. I also chose a green color for the font. It happens to match the color he’d chosen for his home page, but I think it will work well even if he changes the home page image to one that has warmer colors. The blue and green color-scheme brought to mind Hiroshiga’s work, as do Vorgity prints. I changed the font of the title to one of our newer options, and I made his name larger and centered it.
