Benjamin Brooks Guitar
Wonderful One Pager promoting guitar tuition by Bristol-based musician, Benjamin Brooks. The site is just overflowing with character from the beautiful custom illustrations (of Bristol) by Emily Holmes. I was also so surprised when resizing my browser to see how well the unique layout adapted to smaller screens. Congrats on being our first Most Loved One Pager of 2015!
With this website, I wanted to portray the very city I live and teach in, which is Bristol! I got the help of artist/illustrator Emily Holmes who did all the lovely art work. The main challenge was, I wanted the artwork and idea to remain uncompromised regardless of limitation of device or coding practice. This meant using some unconventional and 'not-so-semantic wary' techniques. My biggest victory with this build was making the site responsive both by height and width. This was a big obstacle and led to a lot of head scratching, lists and lists of media queries, and copious amounts of tea-drinking! But yeah check out changing your browser windows' height and width... Cool eh?
