_what
mobile app for comedian, actor, director + writer, louis CK.
_how
louis CK asked us to develop a mobile app for iphone, ipad and android so that fans would be able to obtain his increasing body of work and view it offline more easily, where necessary. working closely with long-standing collaborator tony ash and his team at hipcheck interactive, we designed and developed an app that would be as easy to understand and use as louis's website had been thus far.

_how
over the years we've remained the web development team for louis CK, advancing his website's capabilities and aesthetics in small increments with each new release. this felt like as good a moment as any to put a flag in the ground and celebrate that.

_what
website for new york-based book store, posman books
_how
posman books contacted us with a plan to revitalize their online presence. realizing they'd prefer to strip down the books they had available on their site to a shortlist of ones they really liked and knew would sell, we created the new 'book shelf' style storefront you see now. accompanying this with a more responsive, image-heavy aesthetic, the results capture more what it's like to step off the street and into a branch of posman books.

_what
website for eric idle's comic stage show, what about dick?
_how
westbeth entertainment were keen to release their film of eric idle's what about dick?, using the same platform we developed for jim gaffigan and louis CK. expanding on the visual style originally established in the posters they'd created to promote the show, we quickly put together a reskinned platform for them. this we then fine tuned to suit the appropriate marketing approach for this unique, star-studded film.

_how
show business journeyman jim gaffigan has done nearly every kind of work a comic can do but he'd never self-produced and released his own show. he knew of us through our work with louis CK and so approached us to build a site of his own. whilst the focus was on a similar model, we designed and built a more refined engine this time around.

_what
website for the new york-based comedian + filmmaker, louis CK
_how
like most people we've been a fan of louis CK and his work for a while and so when the gregory brothers very kindly recommended us to him and his team a couple of months back, we were stoked. as if that wasn't cool enough, it turns out louis was looking for much more than a website. he was looking to revolutionize his approach to releasing his material to his fans. always up for trying new things, we set about pulling together a small dream team to get the task done.

everyone worked day and night on this from various locations both in the US and europe and its fair to say that the results far exceeded anyone's expectations. louis himself published a report on the whole project on the website, which you can read here.

you can read an in-depth article about our process and everything we learnt from working on this job here.

following the success of the beacon video, louis released audio downloads of the beacon + two additional shows. since then the site underwent further revision as we integrated louis' ticket sales into the site, all the while maintaining the highest standards of security and ease-of-use.

_what
website for the brooklyn-based band, the gregory brothers
_how
once again we could not be more grateful to topspin. they have put us in touch with an eclectic range of radical artists with whom we've had the most exciting and rewarding relationships. the gregory brothers, better known as the auto-tune the news guys, are no exception. a month or so ago they walked into our studio and told us they needed a new website. they then hit the road and we sent them our ideas as they criss-crossed the country on the youtube tour. the trick was to combine their already burgeoning aesthetic with a number of new levels of functionality. their old site had been pretty much built entirely by them using dreamweaver and they were understandably into something that would be a little easier to update. needless to say, but the process was a breeze and often funny too.
