Context

Artisan-binder, David Lalubin creates work of all kinds: novels, illustrated books, wedding photo albums, guestbook, etc. He works on the binding in a way that enhances the book's appearance, either for when it is displayed in a window or when only the back is visible in a library. He offers a range of services like the creation of unique pieces, the restoration of bindings and series of creation. Among his rich and diverse references, creations dedicated to Jean-Paul Gaulthier and Louis Vuitton can be found.

Realization

The idea here was to create a website portfolio reflecting the richness and quality of the David Lalubin creations. Therefore, the graphics of the website were inspired by a centerpiece of his collection: a binder for "Memory of Fashion" by Farid Chenoune devoted to Jean-Paul Gaultier. For the occasion, the logo was redesigned. The artisan often traveling to London, it was agreed that a bilingual website was required. The site is thus managing two languages: French and English. The version 2 of the site for David Lalubin also has a content management system running on the version 0.1 of the Engine.
