Project Info:

The iconic 7100 pound Charging Bull was dropped off outside the NYSE on Christmas Eve in 1989. It worked it's way to a new home at One Bowling Green. The sculptor Arturo Di Modica contracted me to design him a new website and e-commerce solution to sell his merchandise. This is a massive project as Mr. Di Modica is the only one able to sell Charging Bull memorabilia. After several months working with Chase bank, Mr. Di Modica decided to only sell his hand made sculptures via personal request by email.

This website was hand-coded with Adobe Dreaweaver using HTML5 and CSS3. The languages had just been released at the time and there were still many cross-browser compatibility issues. We worked those out and I made 3 distinct sites for desktop, mobile and tablet.

The e-commerce shop was a bit trickier as I had to work out all of the formalities at the bank. The platform was through Chase and Authorize.net. It was also more expensive to maintain.
