Ruff House Art – ruffhouseart.com
We’re constantly being amazed and delighted by the sites submitted for our showcases – the quality of the work we’re receiving is mightily impressive, and this week is no exception.
Then again, as a Letterpress and Design Studio, it’s not surprising that a lot of care and attention went into the build of a new site, which just launched of December 7th. Letterpress refers to the vintage printing technique used to produce Ruff House Art wedding invitations and stationary, which requires everything to be made one colour at a time and one sheet at a time to produce great results – and it seems the same ethic went into their new Jigoshop-powered site.
Developed by Brian Shepherd, the main page elegantly displays the three main product categories; Wedding Invitations, Home & Office, and Bathtub Couches (More on those later). Clear links also allow you to find out more about Letterpress, and there’s a decently filled blog with all the latest products available. The choice of font, and the subtle use of colour works really well to highlight the areas of the page which are important, including the required social media links.
Browsing products, in this case Wedding Invitations, allows you to benefit from a decent selection of images and information on each page, along with categories to narrow your selections.
The individual products pages are nicely laid out, with a selection of images to view, and a good amount of text content to explain the product, options, and how to order.
But what about the Bathtub Couches?
We simply couldn’t miss the chance to showcase some very cool furniture – after all, it’s not often you get to showcase cool couches produced from vintage iron bathtubs. Originally inspired by Audrey Hepburn lounging in a batchtub couch in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, they’d look great in the Jigoshop office!
