Tom Marvel has an impressive experience but he is really modest. We wanted to show his amazing work while revealing a little bit of his personality. A pure design in order to put his work in the cetnter of the website. His instruction was : Less is more!
In order to build a graphic website without
any flourish, as the customer wanted,
we agreed on a white background and
a rythme play between pictures and titles.
Subtle animations are used to
show the actions contained in his work.
Discreet animations give life to the
images that lead to full screen videos
in order to immerge the used into
Tom Marvel's world.
« Website design has always been a challenge for me finding the right balance between its function which is to showcase my work while also engaging the visitor with its own aesthetic presentation. Like the image in a movie should support and never overpower the story, the website needs to share information without calling to much attention to itself. I shared with Iconink my needs and vision and it is clear that they understood perfectly what needed to be done. I appreciate that Iconink pushed me a little outside of my own aesthetic conventions. In todays world of flashy eye catching visuals, I wanted a simple and elegant design, nothing can be harder to achieve than a simplicity that is captivating, and they got it, it is a breath of fresh air. The Iconink team understand the mysterious world of web traffic, they are visually creative and are a pleasure to work with. The work speaks for itself. Merci! »
