Sanctus Sacred Images
Dianne Minnaar is a professional artist and calligrapher who has focused almost exclusively on creating sacred images in recent years. She wanted a site to not only display her work, but also to give people the opportunity to comment on each piece and to create a story around each one, and also for people to able to buy prints if they desired.
With new pieces being created all the time, the site needed an easy to use content management system, so we chose ExpressionEngine. The site also needed to be capable of e-commerce to take orders for prints of the artwork, and here too ExpressionEngine was up to the task.
The design of the site was lead by the stillness and contemplative nature of the artwork. Site visitors can leave comments on the artwork which are moderated before being published. Payments are handled by PayPal with the ability to add different payment gateway providers if necessary in the future.
