An award winning website

The website invites the user to interact with a world of shifting perspectives. From playful typographic treatments to mouse-tracked motion, this single-page scroller supplies new experiences in every view. This is counter-balanced with an austere aesthetic that gives it a punchy feeling. Our website received accolades from cssdesignawards.com and csswinner.com and was a featured site on Muz.li.

Typography in motion

A key part of the contrary con brand was movement and type. We used these moments of motion to serve as the bedrock for the visual identity.
