Izy Penguin

I’m so pleased with my new website by Banjo Design. It’s fun, yet professional, easy to navigate and works beautifully across browsing platforms. Martin was very easy to work with, he immediately understood what I was after. He came up with creative solutions and ideas that I had no idea could be done, which has really enriched my website.

I’m so pleased I approached Martin for my website, rather than attempt to do this myself on a web design site with templates. I now have a site that’s unique to me that I’m proud to share and I love it.

Izy Penguin is a freelance illustrator, and has authored a number of illustrated books for children. Her brief for me was quite simple: she needed a portfolio and information site which could also link up with a future Etsy shop.

The Portfolio

I really wanted Izy’s website to take a backseat and let her work shine. Using children’s books as inspiration, I put together a Pinterest board, then refined my ideas into the initial concept. In my conversations with Izy, I suggested that simplifying the site and prioritising accessibility would make it much easier to use for kids. The added benefits are smaller file sizes and faster load times, which are great for mobile devices using data plans.
