Berkeley artist and educator, Jennie Braman, chooses Airiel Design Studios for a redesign of her artist website.
In 2017, Airiel Design Studios had the pleasure to work with Berkeley artist and educator, Jennie Braman. The design goal was to bring a fresh look to her online presence, to present her uniqueness as an artist while maintaining a simple and clean design that serves as a container for her artwork.
"Working with Airiel on my website was a profoundly transformative experience. It was an opportunity for me to understand my artwork and my sense of being an artist in new and empowering ways. Her sincere interest in my work, gentle yet insightful demeanor, and graphic expertise made it easy to trust her with the larger vision and details of the large website project. I was also impressed by and grateful for her ability to curate my work- helping me choose which pieces, when, and in what sequence the work should be presented. Her sharp curatorial eye strengthened the site so that for me, it feels like a virtual exhibition. I am proud of my work now in a way I hadn't been, and it has helped me feel ready to move to the next level of my professional career."

Tin Artist, Dave Yoas, wants a website that looks different—something a little funky to display his work.
East SF Bay Tin Artist, Dave Yoas, creates narrative pieces. He comes up with an idea, collects tin from various sources, and realizes his ideas through planning, cutting, and reassembling the images he’s collected or created. He creates visual hooks to capture the attention of the viewer.
“I had been wanting to do a website for a few years. My artist friends had been encouraging me to build my own but my computer skills, and my desire to use my time making art, always got in the way. When I first heard about Airiel Design I was skeptical. Could someone else create the type of website I wanted, would they try to control, or limit, what I had envisioned? I needn’t have worried. Airiel is knowledgable and talented, and she was a true collaborator; a website builder with an artist’s vision. Ensuring that I was happy with the final product was a priority for Ariel. She put me at ease, and together we created the website I wanted. I could not be happier.”

San Francisco Contemporary Artist, Painter, and Educator, Jeremy P.H. Morgan hires Airiel Design Studios to do a completely new website to match his growing international base.
Artist and professor, Jeremy Morgan, makes paintings that point to the ephemeral. Coming from nature, he creates paintings in the realm of the unseen while hovering in the realm of the sublime.
Jeremy wanted a website that reflects his aesthetic and could also contain his majestic artwork.
UK photographer, Libby Pink, wanted an online portfolio to showcase her work as well as be a portal to Instagram.
Libby Pink begins with a love of the ocean and of the sun, and through her photography, seeks out the play of sunlight on the water. This has become a passionate daily practice. A prolific photographer, it was important to Libby to have a well organized representation for her huge body of work.
San Francisco Bay Area artist, Cindy Cleary, wants her new website to reflect the sensitivity of her work.
Visual Artist, Cindy Cleary, creates from the ephemeral. She works with soil, earth and plant pigments, sea water and other organic materials while revealing the stories within these elements. Cindy's artwork expresses a subtle sensitivity to time, memory and things unseen.
Our design goal for Cindy's new website was to reflect the subtleties of her art while not distracting from the work itself.
"What a joy it has been to work with Airiel in creating my website. Not only is she an artist – or maybe because she is – Airiel completely understood my art and how it should be presented. Her aesthetic sensibility enabled her to create something uniquely right for me, well beyond what I could have imagined for myself."
