The Art of the Photogravure

Challenge:

Mark Katzman has one of the worlds largest private collections of photogravures. He needed a site that would be simple and elegant, while showing off the history of photogravure while showing his collection.

Solution:

I joined TOKY while this project was already underway. The HTML/CSS for the site was developed by Matt Erker. I developed the collection database and search engine. This required building a CMS that allowed the client to use their Extensis Portfolio desktop software to manage the collection. I also developed the examples flash section, while the Home Page Flash was developed by Tim Kviz.
