My recent work
I reached out to Transitions Media to design the website for their short film, Kinto. We tried to convey the film's mood through the user experience while using a cinematic theme for the design. I was really excited to design a film website because I think it's a medium that readily allows for the communication of a film's themes.
Kinto's aim is to give an insight into the life of a person in a situation very familiar to its audience (homeless youth and child labor in Jamaica) yet often overlooked and marginalized. Through the carousel of photograph strips against a dark, minimalist backdrop, I tried to create an experience of a limited perspective on an outlook, thus mirroring Kinto's storytelling goals.
For the informational pages I tried to recreate the experience of reading the credits after watching a film but with a stronger focus on who the creators are. The whitespace lended itself really well here to focus the viewer's attention and keep them in the moment of learning about the cast and the film.
For the gallery, I tried to mimic the look of a video editing track or a film reel so the viewer would get the feeling of actually being behind the scenes themselves.
