SD Nelson Website
SD Nelson asked INDIGO8 to revitalize and redesign a website that showcases his books, art, and projects. We replaced all imagery to reflect modern web standards and worked closely with his business manager to ensure accurate copy and usability. The site is designed with red rock colors and uses ecommerce to link out to Amazon and his print-maker for purchases. Frequent use of calls-to-action ensure that users are funneled to where they can take action. INDIGO8 met the client’s tight scheduling requirements.
