A personal website that would showcase Nadya's work as an activist, speaker, author, organizer, and entrepreneur. The website must be bold like Nadya, but not too complex so that site management is easy.
To keep the work as minimal as possible for the photographer who will be managing the website, we put as minimal content as possible as the whole point of the website is to showcase the photography anyway. We made sure to put an about section that would introduce the user of the website to the photographer and links to the photographer's social media so the user can further explore the photographer.
