Kansas City ceramicist Joey Watson approached Special Edition Co. to redesign his portfolio website. He didn't want this to be only a website, but also an engaging and playful experience for the user, much like his artwork.
We created a fun, organic and loopy aesthetic for the website. The textures for page backgrounds and many of the hover states are all sampled directly from relevant photographs of Joey's work. We utilized HTML & CSS adjustments and added lots of motion and unique user interactions, including sounds and gif hover states. The site offers a complete archive of his work, an artist bio and a link to his web shop.
