Matt Gillespie is a professional photographer with a wide portfolio cutting across many fields and businesses. He has worked on shoots for automotive, fashion, and food industries as well as promotional photos for heritage sites. His commercial practice also includes wedding photography. Working with Dots+Circles provided Matt with striking online presence, which proved successful in increasing his viewership and expanding his business. Matt now exclusively uses our services to promote his work and to reach out to new clients.
Matt wanted the ability to present an attractive portfolio that smoothly blended the incredible breadth of his work into one themed whole. He also asked us to support him in shifting his focus toward more commercial clients.
We took aim at inspiring Matt’s online visitors through a beautiful site design that was accessible and intuitive. Our main objective was to increase traffic to his website and to convert his online visits into viable commissions.
To support Matt’s transition into commercial work we chose to put more emphasis on the creative journey he typically takes with every project. Regardless of the subject matter, these always lead to beautiful visual outcomes.
Dots+Circles brought in a team consisting of a designer, a developer, a marketing strategist and a copywriter, whose joint effort helped boost Matt’s business reputation.
To start we divided Matt’s work into themes, allowing visitors to glide through the site with effortlessly displaying images.
In working with Matt we’ve gone beyond simply designing a solid and user-friendly website. Our input has included everything from image selection and printing through business mentoring to brand design and marketing.
The relationship between Dots+Circles and Matt Gillespie has been especially rewarding and collaborative. We continue curating his portfolio, periodically coming up with action plans to further develop his exciting business.
This project is in continuous development, but our client’s testimonial speaks for itself:
‘I needed more than a design agency to drive my career forward. I needed more of an agent who could help generate commissions. Dots + Circles not only designed a brand new presence for my photography business but also helped me redesign my portfolio and redefine my marketing strategy.’
Following our extensive competitor research, we are confident that Matt’s portfolio will stand out from the crowd and help win new clients.
We’re currently working on search engine optimisation and audience/competition analysis to encourage more visitors to the site. We’ll also be helping Matt with planning and delivering ongoing social media content with a view to reaching new audiences.
Our ultimate goal is to diversify Matt’s customer base and enable new business opportunities, as we have done successfully with our other projects.
The team at Dots+Circles have been working for me now over a period of years, by both developing my website to a high standard giving me a bespoke look with very good functionality. They are currently running a few marketing campaigns for me, both email & social media. They have always delivered for me and their enthusiasm, skills, creative & objective thinking help to keep me on my toes and push my business forward in every way. I highly recommend Dots+Circles to help your business to grow and be where it needs to be moving forward in all areas including website design, SEO campaigns, print media and general business management and mentoring.
