deadsy got in touch with us after our work on the experimental fansite, deadsy.tv. they wanted us to overhaul their existing site in a fashion that was as true as possible to their new record phantasmagore and to everything deadsy had come to represent. knowing full-well we were fans of the band, they gave us free reign to do what we wanted as long as the site was, for the most-part, information first and looks second.
secondly they wanted us to put together a forum to accompany the site that also doubled as a street team hub and organization platform. the vanilla forum was perfectly made for the task given the level to which it can be customized. we built into it various sign-up forms, promotional item request forms, dynamic events forms and an integrated live chat system.
christina yu, owner and founder of ipa-nima, contacted us with the desire to improve her current web presence and to create a site which would not only market her products in a organized and user friendly fashion, but also deliver a rather conceptual 'ipa-nima' experience to each one of her buyers.
in studying christina's work and seeing the complexity of her designs, it was very clear to us that this was certainly not an aesthetic that we needed to 'further develop & add to'. we decided instead to pull from the exisiting design elements & use them as the aesthetic foundation for the site. the end result is an organic site composition which focuses on surprising the viewer & fluidly growing as one progresses through the site.
