When it comes to websites we always strive to make the perfect framework for the clients own content, whether it means presenting art, music and videos in the best possible way or creating a site with bustling inspiration while still keeping the vital information easily accessible. Some clients have an idea of how they want their site to look, some don’t. Either way, we’re happy to assist.
Claesons is an artist and musician with a lot going on, and all the different projects need to fit nicely onto the same web page. Luckily, he had a clear picture of how he wanted it all to be organized, with four different categories on the frontpage and a gallery page for each category. All we had to do was making it work. We threw in some nice typography and a sleek, minimalistic design as well.
Skottes is a musical theatre company with colourful plays aimed at children, it is only natural to make the shows themselves the focus of the page. So we dedicated the whole front page to photo vignettes of the plays, each one a link to a full page of information, story, photos and trailers.
The more grown-up information, such as booking and contact pages, takes a more discrete place in the top menu. To create a stronger connection to the theater building itself we also turned the beautiful pattern of the facade into a background for the entire page.
THE ART OF JENS SALANDER
When designing a website for artist Jens Salander it became obvious that we needed to place his amazing artworks in a prominent position. By carefully arranging fonts, colours and visual elements to support the pieces we made his art excel on screens and devices of all sizes. ”Responsive design” in more ways than one.
KOM TILL BYN
During the art project Kom till byn the art duo [krig] brought three people to places they had never visited before, where the locals suggested what to see and do. The aim was to counteract the prejudice of the countryside being an empty place were nothing happens. The project resulted in an enormous amount of photos, videos and sound recordings, presented on a website. A lot of thought went in to planning the structure of the site to keep the different journeys perspicuous. To achieve a consistency with the artists personal style , we also incorporated hand made textures and colours used earlier in the projects.
Musician, artist and cultural journalist Mikael Strömberg has made a vast number of books, records and radio programs. He has also composed electronic music for aerobatics and smoke sculptures, designed sounds for trucks, exhibited entire towns as audio monuments and launched an atlas for endangered sounds. And more projects are in progress.
Studio Lord’s mission was to design a website that could grow and embrace the variety. The heart of the website is the fantastic photo by Frida Mattsson, from there the categorised menu takes the visitor in the multitude of directions of Strömberg’s work. But most important of all was the creation of a blog, since his fingers itched for writing.
Anything you can imagine - and beyond was the starting point when making a new website for Sandviken duo [krig]. Their production consists of music, art, performance, graffiti, event-planning and so much more that can not even be categorised. In the end we made a complex cross-reference system so visitors could find what they were looking for, wether it’s the latest record release or to refresh their knowledge on flax. The design itself was tuned down in favour of [krig]’s own visual textile-punk-graffiti-language.
The Gaffel association has a wide variety of activities, ranging from workshop and courses to art festivals and exhibitions, as well as studios and equipment for rent. Their web page must provide easily accessible information about upcoming events without losing the energy and inspiration connected to the association.
The solution was a notice board inspired page, where text and images gives concise information, but also highlights the variety of activities. For the more static content, such as information about the association and the studios, a regular menu is used.
