Webspiration Wednesday – Inaugural Edition

It's a new month, folks! Which mean it's time for a brand new edition of Webspiration Wednesday!

What?!! You have never heard of Webspiration Wednesday? Oh friend, where have you been living? The shame you must be feeling…just kidding. It's the first edition. But who's counting! Let's kick this off with some cute puppies!

All hail the queen of cute!

Mary Maier has been a Showiteer for a while now. She was one of the early adapters to Showit 5: changing her horitzontal site to a vertical one with a customized mobile experience. It was awesome for us to watch how Mary used Showit 5 to create a different site from her previous one (which was also great!) with her own little K9 twist. As she does with all her images, Mary blew us away! Add to that clean navigation, crisp design, and her favorite clients front and center! All pet parents will want their furbabies in front of Mary Maier's camera the moment they click her site.

The queen of creativity is up next.

For those of you wanting to infuse some personal graphic elements to your site, take a page from Amanda May. Her site is one that just exudes creative confidence.  Amanda is the kind of photographer that takes each moment and fills it with happiness, so why shouldn't that be how she greets her online visitors? Using a graphic element, Amanda welcomes her online guests with a happy hello. Starting with a geometric background, layering it with a playful font, and popping in a floral embellishment to hold it all together…Amanda has created the online version of a well designed entry hall. If you are having any trouble figuring out how to visualize your brand graphically, AmandaMay.com is a great place to kick-off your inspiration.

The king and queen of paralax.

It's not everywhere, but you have definitely seen it being used. If you have to think about it, then most likely you have seen  parallax being done right. With the right balance, parallax can be added to your work seamlessly. The husband and wife team behind Brushfire Photography have the right balance down! With the help of Melissa Love of Design Co, their scroll shifts your eye from one canvas to the next to keep the viewer's eye and brain engaged. Their beautiful images will shift from center stage to becoming backgrounds for information or navigators to the next point of interest. Their Showit site's refined scroll allows the visitor to stay focused on the work in front of them as Brushfire Photography's images split like a Broadway chorus line welcoming in their audience.

Whether it's an unconventional clientele, how to welcome your clients in a graphic way, or pop some parallax into your site, with the Showit app, it's just a drag-n-drop second away!

Give it a whirl, and let your creativity run wild to create your dream site. And attract your dream clients (even if they are of the four-legged variety!)
