KAPromotions

This website incorporates some lovely CSS animations and Javascript homepage elements that draw customers in. Overall the design is simple and clean – removing distractions to focus users to a call to action.

Heatwave Music Festival

Heatwave is a music festival that channels the pop art of the masters of the 70s and 80s. Bold colors and simple images are the flavor of this design.

Moontrash

Moontrash is a clothing and apparel company that specializes in the weird and esoteric. With this in mind, we created a vibrant site that channels the busier elements of late-90s, early-2000s Angelfire and Geocities sites with a layer of grunge and punk aesthetic.

 

The site is built on a Shopify e-commerce backend that hooks into the print-on-demand company Printful. No inventory is required and orders are fulfilled and shipped automatically.

Eventric Master Tour

The client requested examples of a reworked portal page for the Master Tour desktop login page. The requirements were that it must be extremely light-weight and contain no embedded images.

 

We built the example with SASS/CSS and html. Each facet of the design was fully customizable. The embedded images were rendered with CSS to keep the page extremely light-weight.
