Pawnbrokers World

branding / web / graphic design
Overview

We created this neat and informative website for Norwood-based Pawnbrokers World in 2012. The site features an RSS-driven gallery of items from the clients very successful ebay store. While this functionality was already available in the CMS that we chose, ebay’s RSS feed at the time only supplied 80 x 80px thumbnails. We worked around this with some custom Javascript that fetched the high-resolution images from their servers instead.

When we began the design process, the client didn’t really have a logo, so we came up with a simple text-based identity for the top of the site. The client liked what we had created so much that he re-branded his shop to match!
