The Collaboration

Client : Funkhaus

We firmly abide by the notion that collaboration with similarly minded creative individuals gives you the best product. Pooling our talent and resources across disciplines, we have a creative partnership with the graphic wiz’s at Funkhaus Design Labs.

We work as more than coworkers, but as friends, partnering creatively to help concept and develop your website, digital media, or interactive projects. And you, in turn, get the best of all worlds, with the combination of tools to put your design at the forefront.

Whitehouse Post

Whitehouse Post debuted a new site that showcases the world-class editorial content coming out of their five offices worldwide. Launched with a brilliantly animated film about the evolution of the company created with partner Gentleman Scholar, the site captures the humor, talent, and innovation of this amazing group.

From a design and technical standpoint, the site marks an interesting point in the evolution of the website for creative companies. Rather than building the site in Flash, designer Dave Funkhouser of Funkhaus suggested a blend of existing platforms offering ease of in-house management, cost effectiveness and creative flexibility.

The internal workflow of the company was taken into account.  Updating reels, blog posts and photo streams had to be fast and easy.  By leveraging Vimeo Pro, it was ensured that the widest possible audience could see the editor’s work, regardless of the viewing platform (an ongoing issue for companies with video-heavy sites.) The design of the video detail pages allows for ease of navigation between videos in a reel, without too much distraction to take away from the work. A wholly interactive experience, employees can contribute to the Photos page and inject their own personality into the site through Instragram and Flickr via their iPhones and mobile devices.
