Lavelle Art Gallery

The Lavelle Art Gallery has been operating in Clifden since 1988. It was set up by Eoin Lavelle as a summer pursuit and has developed over the years into a full time venture that welcomes visitors all year round. Today the gallery maintains a longstanding reputation for the promotion of fine art painting of the highest quality to be found in the west of Ireland.

Project
Development of a website and e-commerce shop. The purpose of the website is to showcase the fine collection of artists that make up the Gallery’s portfolio. They also have a fine selection of ceramics available at the gallery. We setup the e-commerce shop, which has great selection of funky gifts, and sign-up form to build up their customer database.

Our Role
It was important in the design of this site to communicate the three main “sections” of the Lavelle Art Gallery: Visual Arts, Ceramics and The Design Range. The website build was part of a larger rebranding project, including a full redesign of the shopfront and the companies logo and so the new look for the gallery was reflected and reinforced throughout the site.
