Lawrence Levy Author Website

Lawrence Levy had a story to tell. He was on the ground floor for Pixar’s meteoric rise and worked side-by-side with Steve Jobs to get the company profitable and keep it moving forward. Now, years later, he was finally convinced to tell his inside story of what happened.

With his book coming out in just a few months Lawrence got ahold of me to design and build a website that could be his online presence for those searching for more information about his book To Pixar and Beyond.

With such a unique story and straightfoward content we decided to present a different kind of site right on the homepage. Instead of a lot of text or large menu full of links each section of the site is presented visually. Visitors choose their own adventure based on the reason they’re coming to the site.

Inside visitors are presented with beautiful pages of content, each resting on their own gorgeous full-screen background images. This makes the text feel more immersive as users are drawn into the world of Pixar and Lawrence’s newer venture The Juniper Path.

lawrence-levy-website-mobileOf course WordPress allows Lawrence to easily make updates when he wants to add a new image to his photo gallery or a new article in his media section. And like all the sites I build this one was built with mobile devices in mind and works flawlessly on phones and tablets.
