John Graney Metal Design, located in Sheffield Massachusetts, is an iron forging business. For this website project we custom designed a hammered metal look, a wrought iron flash header animation that matched a common motif in the artist’s work, and a unique dual thumbnail php gallery.
The gallery system is custom-coded by Tom Stier, based on a famous PHP gallery script, with some of our own coding modifications.
For this design project we provided custom photography services, edited and cropped the 100 or so images of custom forged items on the site. The thumbnail to medium-sized image with descriptive text to large image with caption was one of our coding customizations on this project.
The site we built for John Graney Metal Design was an attractive brochure website that ranked well on the first page of Google Search for the term “metal design.”
Interestingly, this page on our site continues to rank well for “metal design berkshires” search term, showing well in the search results, and often above the new version of his website!
The site we designed featured John’s beautiful home furnishings, lighting fixtures and sculpture, along with large commissioned projects. We wish well John well with his continuing web promotion efforts!
Above is a the fun little animation graphic that loaded when a visitor first came to the home page of the site.
The site has unfortunately been taken off-line.
