James Iles Antiques
- Spring 2023
- Design + Development
James first approached me in 2018 having seen some of the work I’d done for other antiques dealers on the Lillie Road in London. I developed a Django-based catalogue to help James market his diverse range of stock, and was delighted to have the opportunity to refresh and redesign the site in 2023.
This tidy and responsive Django build helps James update his stock with a minimum of fuss, and presents attractive listings and item profiles to potential customers. Our 2023 refresh focused on a more full-screen responsive layout to show off the content more effectively, and revised type styles and palettes to project a sense of light and space. A full sweep of the backend code allowed us to take advantage of new features in the latest version of Django, make various optimisations and trim the fat.
