We created a website that showcases Mako’s work and philosophy.
About The Client
Makoto Fujimura is a Japanese-American fine artist, writer, speaker, and theologian.
Create a website as a place of digital encounter that would allow for a true experience of the artists work — as meaningful as being in a museum or gallery, while organically integrating his extensive catalog of writings.
Meeting this ideal also required that we reflect the artists' minimalist sensibilities, broad range, narrative process and roots in Japanese art.
We built a site using parallax scrolling to create a more dimensional and immersive visitor experience. Our design included visual timeline cues to allow visitors an experience of how Mako's work grows and changes over time.
This online exhibit space was accented with design details reflecting the artist's inspirations and aesthetic, as framing for a wide array of creative works.
- Married Mako’s aesthetic with cutting edge digital design to create a one-of-a-kind piece of artistic expression
- Met accessibility standards without sacrificing creative freedom
- Integrated a modern CMS so Mako and his team can maintain the site without external support
