    On Your Marques!

    Tuesday, March 08, 2011

    2011 started apace with a call from three-times world Salsa champion and choreographer to the stars, Chris Marques. Hot on the heels of his successes in choreographing many of the routines seen on the BBC hit show 'Strictly Come Dancing', French-born Chris had been appointed Artistic Director and Head Judge on TF1's 'Danse Avec Les Stars' – France's equivalent to 'Strictly' – and needed a website up and running in time for the show's press launch.

    Chris had a clear direction in mind from the outset: he wanted his site to look and feel very magazine-like, loving the approach we took with fellow Strictly professional Erin Boag's website last year. His brief was to take design cues from top gentlemen's style publications and team them up with shots from his latest photoshoot by the fabulous Snooty Fox Images to create magazine-style pages with attitude and impact. As a relative newcomer front-of-camera, the site was to present Chris as a personable expert and authority in his field — the natural choice for the role of Head Judge on this primetime show.

    With a striking bilingual 'coverpage' linking through to a media-packed contents page, interview-style spreads (translation to be supplied) and a blog, gallery and contact page, the result is a punchy site that's smart and chic whilst still capturing Chris' quirky personality and latin spirit.

    Known industry-wide as being a perfectionist in his field, we held our breath when we sent the site over to Chris for him to explore... and were thrilled when we received his marks: a full 10 points!

    "The site is AMAZING!!!! Thanks so much for all your hard work!! Everything from the way it looks to the way it's written, just fantastic!"
