Studio Polpetto designed the website and online store for Farley’s House & Gallery. The home of the surrealist artists Lee Miller and Roland Penrose. The new website reflects the look, feel and essentially the heart and soul of the family home - the colour, the artists work, the life of Lee Miller and Roland Penrose and photographs of their home and garden. The website's aim is to attract more, and repeat, visitors to Farleys. The website consists of the information about visiting Farley’s House & Garden, the history of it, the artists, press, past, present and future exhibitions, guided tours of the house and special events including their annual Surrealist Picnic. The website design is desktop, tablet and mobile optimised.
An online shop selling items from their gift shop, books and tickets was added for the opening of the 2019 season.“It has been a wonderful project to work on, immersing in to the work and lives of this remarkable family, and the art they have created and curated. We have strived to capture the heart of Farleys within the website, to give a real sense of their home and the ever changing display of their vast art collection. It's a real treasure trove of such an exciting period of art, and I cannot believe it is just down the road from my studio in East Sussex. The dynamic colour banner at the top of every page, heavy use of images and colour and typography have all played a part of bringing this fascinating home to life within the website design.” Lou Eldon.
“Lou at Studio Polpetto delivered a beautiful new website for Farleys House & Gallery in time for the opening of our 2018 tours season. She brilliantly interpreted our brief to create a warm and welcoming site that is easy for us to update and inspiring for visitors. Lou was very patient and easy to work with and her final design totally exceeded our expectations in its ability to convey Farleys House & Gallery’s unique atmosphere and collection.
We look forward to working with Studio Polpetto on future projects.”
