This website was built for a brilliant local nail artist that wanted to increase their exposure and have a good way of displaying their portfolio.
We designed and built the website using the following technology.
- - Next.js.
- - React.
- - Tailwindcss for styling.
- - GSAP for some elegant animation.
- - Sanity.io to create a fully custom content management system (CMS) so that the owner can change any part of the website easily.
The website is statically generated upon build so that end users have the speed and performance of a static website, but the owner can use the CMS and the website will incrementally rebuild. We believe this is the future for websites and will always statically generate content whenever we can.
So speaking of performance, here is the lighthouse audit for this website. We lost a touch on performance and accessibility due to including the Facebook messenger plugin on the website. As you can see, the page is fully loaded and interactive in 0.8 seconds, this is a seriously fast website. This is a great experience for any user.
The design of this website was inspired by Carmen herself. It was a balanced approach between creating a professional and elegant website, whilst adding in that personal touch with some of our font choices and imagery.
This was a really fun project and the website will be a place that beautifully showcases the amazing nails created by Carmen.
