Eva Quilez website now live!

Eva Quilez works internationally as a highly sought after make up and special effects artist. She has worked with Pedro Almodovar and Penelope Cruz, as well as Vinila Von Bismarck and others.

Having been let down by a previous designer, Rigby & Jones stepped into the frame to create a snappy and very simple, clean layout.

Eva’s work base is in both Spain and the UK, so we wanted to produce a site that was bi-lingual, and not by simply duplicating all the content into a second site.

This is something I’ve wanted to have a go at for some time, and this site uses a very elegant system to allow inputting in both languages (it is extensible, so other languages can be added very simply if needed). You can flip between Spanish and English very quickly – using an XML feed. All other layout aspects remain the same to allow for fast loading.

The ‘fast-view’ gallery is purely CSS and of my own design (I must give it a better name!) and we’ve used it before, famously on www.flukeshot.co.uk

After an initial chat on Skype, Eva was uploading and adding picture captions very quickly from Barcelona whilst we polished the design here in London.

The site has a very clean architecture and is valid XHTML as well as being happily iPhone compatible.
