michael grodner approached us to produce a teaser site for his forthcoming feature film debut. he wanted a site that would create a buzz but also act as a way of helping him raise funds to get the film made. armed only with a script and some old NASA stock footage we wrote a short 'shooting script' of ideas. we developed four main stages to the site of which michael went with the two he felt were the least revealing and most enticing. the end result is a short but sweet curiosity of a site that gives sneaks script fragments at you and hints at the strange psychology of the film.
revamped website for the nashville-based band, the protomen
the protomen are on the eve of the release of their new album, act 2. recruiting the powerful drawing abilities of john delucca, we created an open-ended flash website that would allow us to introduce as much exciting new content as we liked, during the build-up to the album's release.
website for the miami-based fashion house, house of jackie brown
jackie & emily wanted a site that would showcase their late 80s / early 90s influenced new swimwear line, electric couture. given carte blanche to do anything we wanted with the site we set about creating a eleven aesthetic variations all based around this iconic time period. we then wrote music and treated our visuals in a way that made them feel as if they had been salvaged from that era - fades, creases, crackles and all.
fan-site for the los angeles-based, rock band, deadsy
born out of our enjoyment of deadsy's music, deadsy.tv was a side
project of ours that gave us a chance to experiment with some older
technologies we'd used for the thomasnewbolt.com website. it was the
band's new 'tv test signal' logo that primarily inspired the project and
lead us to choose the .tv domain. the idea was basically that your
computer was intercepting a fairly weak but yet prevailent pirate signal
from the band. the end result was a site that deadsy fans the world
round have applauded and that also lead to us helping out with deadsy's
own website deadsy.com and the band's myspace pages.
site for the new-york-based property broker, michael bolla.
this has been one of our more long-form projects & much like thomasnewbolt.com it has really tested our abilities on a number of new design fronts. the brief was to translate into website form everything that michael bolla & his company luxury lofts & homes have come to stand for during their 15 year existence. michael showed us the kind of sites he was into & we ultimately chose to design the site in flash in order to capture the company's very personal & non-corporate approach. furthermore his passion for yoga, beautiful spaces & subtle, elegant design have all come to the fore on this project in a manner that's translated very well into some satisfying web design. much like the stationery set we designed for him, this site has a lightness, grace & elegance that contrasts well with the world of luxury realty.

site for the cambridge-based artist thomas newbolt.
thomas called with some ideas for a site that offered us the opportunity to produce something that would showcase his life's work beyond any typical website limitations. for his online debut he said he didn't care for slow connections or primitive computer technology; the people he wanted to see his work wouldn't have them anyway & they had to be impressed.
