The main objective of the website was to function as a quick gallery to showcase Manuel's work. It had to be very easy to flip through the images. Looking at statistics from his previous website, I realised an important percentage of its visitors where browsing from touch-screen devices, so I decided to create the gallery in the form of a finger-sensitive horizontal scroll. This way, people on tactile devices can scroll through the pictures with a simple sidewards gesture. Manuel Albarran's audience is not only browsing from touch-screen devices, but also from smartphones in many cases, so the solution had to be definitely responsive.

The color palette in the previous website was made of greyscale shades and I talked Manuel into adding a little bit of hue in the new interface, picking tones from the metal he uses for his pieces of work. His logo was starting to look a little outdated and he asked me to redesign it as well; I created a timeless identity that is easy to translate into any media (even metal).
