Slick folio site of Anthony Goodwin Creative Director / Art Director – and his refreshed portfolio. Minimal and well considered layout which transitions nicely into project pages with a satisfying ripple / bounce. Great body of work and nice attention to detail like the little cursor ‘bump’ along the material-esque background.
Site of Matsu a cut vegetable factory in Kanazawa, Japan!
Best described by the creators, “When thinking about “What is human value?” From now on, the value of “manual work” and “skills using the human body” and “human imagination” that can change the cut to the person who eats will increase I thought. Therefore, it is possible to experience the immersive feeling when cutting vegetables on a website. Tell the fun and value of cut vegetables.”
Love the scrolling progression through the stop motion style animation.
Site of creative management Atomo, with a focus on the fashion industry. Love the amorphous rolling homepage with gliding and fading photography, this transitions down into a grid of featured projects and the people they represent. Beautifully crafted.
Site of Lundqvist & Dallyn, Uk based design studio with a focus on Brand Identity and Art Direction. Minimal and elegant, leading with large imagery and plenty of white space, subtle transitions and colour fades bring a subtle sense of dynamism.
Playful celebration site of US agency Zero. Love the bold type set against inverted white on black styling, with parallax effect on the photography and type. Love the fun cursor replacement to explore the imagery. Lots of personality weaved into a fresh modern experience with an amazing feel of depth.
Site of painter Florian Monfrini – elegant and stylistic expression of the paintings. Love the large bold type and the subtle scrolling effect inside the imagery which adds a wonderful dimension of depth. Minimal but elegant and well crafted.
Site of Kwok, US based designer, and a personal portfolio. Love the personality dotted all around this site, from the playful dot to dot represenation of distance from my ip to where he’s based, through to a guestbook where visitors leave their messages, it’s like going back to the fun websites of yesteryear. Lovely design and nice mix of type and languages, particularly like the transition from project thumbs to the detail page. Super cool and super fresh.
A collaborative interactive story writing experience. “BOOOK.LAND is a space for collaborative storytelling, bringing the online world together to write a novel. The digital platform allows participants to take part in a live novel anywhere, anytime. By continuing the story where it was left off and illustrating it as it’s being written, participants are able to collaborate with the rest of the world. The final novels are unconventional, unexpected pieces born from a clash of digital and print worlds.” Incredible idea, nicely crafted and inspirational for the digital medium.
Site of freelance stylist based in Paris. Elegant site full of fashion photography highlighting the range of styling from Julie Cristobal. Love the colour transitions when interacting with the thumbnails and the seamless transitions when diving into the project details. Love the colour palette and light, fluid experience throughout.
Playful site of Art Director & Designer Sandra Autukaite based in London. Love the old school nod to the cursor animation, and the engaging and playful way of viewing work – click and random artefacts start appearing on the canvas. Really simple, stripped back experience that gets across the breadth of the folio.
Interactive documentary about what it’s like to exist while black. A range of stories from people describing discrimination in everyday existence – shopping, driving, parenting. A bold type driven experience, full of heart wrenching stories, told through the eyes of those who are victim of everyday discrimination.
Site of French Art Director and designer Gilles Tossoukpé. Bold type driven folio, minimal layout to allow the work to speak and seamless transitions between projects. Modern and clean aesthetic with a mix of imagery and motion.
Site of Swiss born artist, photographer and director, with a focus on luxury brands. Lovely minimal folio, stripped back to the essentials – love the homescreen where scrolling down either side reveals a floating stream of imagery. Nice seamless transitions into the detail pages – elegant and fluid.
