In many ways, photography websites allow designers & developers to really push the envelope with their creativity and this website is no exception.
I really liked the site, especially the little personal touches with the quirky typeface and the subtle dark grey shades used for the background on the index page. Works perfectly with the image thum...
This was a truly unique and original site. Its not traditionally pretty and nor are there any cinematic visuals to entice you. In fact, at first glance I wasnt even sure about the colour palette until I remembered what Umami meant.
While this website is not groundbreaking in terms of animation or UI, it is nonetheless sufficiently appropriate for the work that they do. As a matter of fact, I found the straightforward honest approach to the design and content quite refreshing. Everything from the UI and typeface selection to the actual written content echoes this perfectly.
If I had to nitpick, I would look at using slightly better quality screenshots on some of the case study pages. The low quality does become apparent on large retina devices. Also, navigating back to a case study page using the browsers back button seems to have a bug....
So, Ill start with the positives. From a Design perspective, the site was relatively traditional, simple and easy to navigate with an abundance of solid readable content, especially in the articles and work sections. Apart from the background images obscuring the navigation links on the service and quality pages, the design is clear and functional.
On the flip side however, the designers could have definitely injected a bit more personality into the site through their content. Especially, the taglines and headings like theyve done at certain points on their quality page. Would definitely help better communicate the brands personality and make things a bit more interesting for the reader and make the site more memora...
A bold and functional site that doesnt waste any time beating around the bush. I particularly liked the illustrations and choice of typeface. It all comes together nicely with the tried & tested, yellow, black and white colour scheme.
However, for the sake of playing devils advocate, I would perhaps look at simplifying the final order page. All t...
This was definitely an interesting site. Of course, it helped that the subject matter was so unique and specialised.
Ill start with the positives first. The layout was clear and easy to navigate. Each of the product categories and the brands USP were highlighted clearly throughout the site. And visually speaking, the typeface and photography wer...
This was definitely one of the more refined websites Ive seen. Theres actually a lot going on in terms of animation here. However, by creating a relatively simple layout and timing the animations perfectly, the designer has ensured the browsing experience feels smooth and easy rather than overwhelming or frustrating.
Collaborative design projects involving more than one team can often be challenging to execute. More importantly however, the end result can quite easily become an amalgamated mess of several ideas and opinions.
When it comes to product based e-commerce websites like this one, the proof really is in the pudding (pardon the pun). But from what Ive seen of the initial design and user experience, I wouldnt be surprised if the site performed well.
This was a nicely designed website. I really liked the simplicity of the layout, colours and the visuals. And while the design does seem a bit template-like, there are just enough creative elements to keep things interesting. I especially liked the social media integration in the footer and news page.
Weve been seeing a wide range of designs on CSS Fox lately. And while some of them do knock your socks off, others are a little less inspirational.
While I did like some elements such as the taglines and header/footer animations, Im afraid the basic layout and design didnt work for me. There were just too many minor errors, both from a content as...
Its always really interesting to see how other designers approach their own portfolios. If done right, it really showcases their design style & personality in addition to simply listing their work. This website is a perfect example of this phenomenon.
The whole site structure and layout follows a clear logic which makes complete sense. However, ...
This was quite an interesting website although a bit simplistic in terms of content.
I particularly liked the concept behind the brand. Really captures ones imagination. The typography and colours are also well chosen. Just unique enough to stand out and add some character without seeming too quirky. Moreover, the double sided visuals and animati...
Not every website design is meant to knock your socks off with jaw dropping visuals and animation. Some of them just need to effectively communicate a list of services, inspire confidence and convert visitors into clients. This is one of those sites.
Im afraid this website just didnt work for me. The overall visuals were fairly unimpressive and there were several little alignment and spacing issues on various devices. Moreover, a lot of the interactive elements could have been designed much better. The problem is that all these little niggles add up to create a user experience that seems to ...
Loved the whole idea behind the website. Seems like it would make for a really useful tool for industry professionals like architects and interior designers.
So, Ill start with the positives. I liked the isometric illustrations used throughout the site. And the animation on the homepage. They really bring the concepts to life and definitely add a little fun to an otherwise dry subject.
Really liked this website. The layout or animations were not groundbreaking by any means. In fact, at first glance, it tends to almost look like another typical agency website.
If I'm being completely honest, this design didn't blow me away. While there were one or two pages such as About Advance, which were somewhat interesting, I'm afraid the rest of the site felt pretty standard.
While I wasn't blown away by animated effects or artwork, there is still something very pleasing about this site. I suspect it might have something to do with your no-nonsense, straightforward approach to creating a design that just works.
This is a well designed site with each element playing its part in creating an immersive experience. As a result the design is fairly well balanced without any single element trying to overshadow the others and distracting from the content itself. I especially liked your page transitions and on scroll image animations. They may not be groundbrea...
Its always a challenge to create websites for organizations that specialise in highly technical products & services. So, bearing that in mind, I must say, the site works well. I really liked your colours, typography, layout and your overall design approach.
I also enjoyed the accompanying illustrations & icons which are done beautifully. They...
Theres something to be said for simple straightforward designs that just work well. This is one such example. While it didnt blow me away, I must admit the site does work well across different devices and is easy to browse through.
Its always interesting when designers use illustrations + animation to inject personality into their agency sites. And on the whole, I think the site has potential but it lacks refinement in several places.
I liked the SVG icon & background animations you've used throughout the site, especially on your Homepage. They add an element of playfulness and finesse to the site. Not bad considering you have also taken the time to create your own Wordpress theme.
My only concerns were the performance issues in Safari and your Contact page which seems to glit...
Liked some parts of your design, especially the profile images and the little parallax effect youve got going on. However, considering the subject matter, I wasnt too sure about your choice of typography and colour. Especially your title font, which seemed a little too delicate and feminine. There were also some inconsistencies in the design as ...
To be honest, I was initially unimpressed by the seeming simplicity of the site. However, once I began exploring the pages it got progressively more interesting.
So, let me begin by saying i really liked the website. The deceptively simple minimal layout, soft pastel colours and subtle animations all come together quite nicely. Also loved the menu concept and the little surprising touches like the footer tagline. With that being said, I did find myself wanting a bit more detail about the studio and the p...
Really liked the attention to detail given to your pre-loader logo animation and the little icons like the one on your About page. Also, really loved the short videos on your project pages giving your users a little peek into your creation process.
Interesting shades and I liked the icons and logos you created but I did want to see more of your work. Maybe a few mock ups of the logos being used on stationery or billboards. Would definitely add a bit of depth and make the website more engaging. Also, maybe a little contrasting shade to break the monotony of the orange hues.
I loved the simplicity and the no-nonsense approach to the design. Matches the subject matter perfectly. Also liked the slight quirkiness with the rotating ticket symbol and the oversized logo on the left.
But most of all, I liked your typographical choice both, in terms of the font you picked as well as the sizing on different viewports.
Absolutely love your illustrative style and the colour combination you've gone with. As well as the little animated clips you've got on your Home & Service pages.
The only things I'd have done differently would've been to add a Next/Previous button at the bottom of your inner project pages and maybe a creative hover effect for your Project Thumbn...
Loved the background graphics and the dark textured background colour palette. Combining these visuals with slick animations and page transitions delivers the perfect mix of subtle sophistication and a sharp efficient approach.
Congrats! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more of your work.
Loved the site, especially the various hover effects - true to the brand - minimal but with that crucial coolness factor. Not too sure about the way you've shown the prices but otherwise loved your work.
Love the different illustrations by the various artists. Each one is relevant and interesting. And the animation really brings it home. Awesome work and a big thumbs up.
Love the straightforward honest approach youve taken with the website. This honesty and passion for your craft comes through both, in your content and your images. And while the website is not groundbreaking from an animation or layout standpoint, it seems to work perfectly as a tool to showcase your work and your personality to potential clients.
Also, by keeping your layout and animations simple, youve allowed the content to shine. And it most definitely does shine. Your photography is absolutely stunning and I quite enjoyed going through your wor...
Love the clean look you achieved (pardon the pun). Especially liked the animations you added, from the homepage distortion effect to the little button effects and entry animations for each element. Also liked the colour scheme you created. Everything seems to work together organically and smoothly.
Really liked the Menu auto hide animation combined with the scroll progress indicator. Definitely creates an interesting effect. I would have liked to see a bit more in the inner pages but all in all, a nicely put together site.
You may also want to look at your written content. The phrasing and structure sounded a bit off at certain points.
Liked some of the vector artwork, especially the homepage animation and the fun little pieces peppered throughout the site. Keeps thing light while still being relevant to the subject matter.
Really Simple & Interesting concept.Especially liked the button hover effect you've used. Seems to work well with the image transition animations.
Liked the site, especially the block reveal animations which were timed perfectly. I also liked the Case Studies page which was visually interesting.
All in all a nicely done site.
Really loved the layout. Everything from the spacing, typography and the visual look and feel. Its different enough from the typical template sites to be interesting and yet familiar enough to encourage users.
I'd just re-check the language if I were you. (Ref. Menu - Company - Prodcution Process)
I agree with Jenish. Particularly liked the typography and the simple clean look you've accomplished. Seems to work well for the subject matter.
Really enjoyed browsing through the pages. Definitely liked the parallax/ hover effect for your case study images and the amount of detail you guys put into each case study itself. But the highlights for me were the animations throughout the site. Whatever they lack in terms of innovation is made up by the level of finish you delivered. Everythi...
Really liked the minimal approach to the page, the subtle greys, the grid and the mini slideshow previews within some of your project thumbnails.
Would have loved to see some inner pages giving us a little peek into your creative process or maybe some images of the finished designs from different angles. Would definitely add a bit of depth to the...
Personally, Ive never been a great fan of the whole retro collage design style. It just didnt seem that impactful when compared to really strong elegant visuals. With that being said though, this approach does seem to work perfectly for this particular brand. Also, underneath all the visual noise seems to be a really well executed site. I especi...
Everything about the site is neat and efficient, which is perfect when we take into consideration the subject matter. From the clean simple layout, typography and colour scheme to the slick animations. I also liked that you didnt overwhelm users with too much written content or too many links.
I agree with Robert. The Colours, Typography, Animations and Layout seem to work decently together but I'd definitely add more to the inner project pages to make it a bit more interesting.
I think WordPress Theme sites often get a bad rap. This could be because so many of them are just overloaded with as many interactive elements as possible. So, its refreshing to see a WordPress theme site with a clean uncluttered look.
I especially liked your colour palette and the simple but effective use of white space.
Nice job with the Design. I especially liked the soft colours and gentle background animations. It all seems to work together without becoming too intrusive.
