Gordon Leverton, orginally from Chatham, Ontario, Canada, is a self-taught artist working at his practice since 2006. Gordon’s work has appeared in numerous publications, broadcasts and journals and is widely collected. He is the co-founder of the West Hamilton Artist Tour (WHAT) - an artist run art show in his Hamilton community. He makes his home in Hamilton with his partner Nancy, two children and his cat Hugo - typically by his side in his home studio.
Northern Village developed an impressive new design built around the paintings themselves and the artist’s brand. We employed carousels so visitors can easily review a variety of new, sold, and commission pieces. The location, size, and materials of each piece are detailed. Commission process and pricing is also presented, and visitors can click through to the artist’s page at multiple galleries hosting his work as well. Now rather than merely duplicating the artist’s social media pages, the website elaborates on his work in ways that allow visitors to better explore its depth and breadth. Menus are carefully integrated so as not to overshadow the work, and visuals are used in a variety of mobile formats to enhance the texture and impact of the site.
