Set Studio is a new UK-based digital design and development studio. Led by designer/developer Andy Bell, Set Studio champions doing things the right way: using just enough of the right technologies to build lean, accessible, performant, no-nonsense websites that look great and work properly on any device.
I wanted the design to hint at the fabric and structure of a web page in an abstract, colourful way. I gathered tons of reference materials including sci-fi movie UIs, motion graphics, and some beautiful glitch artwork, and dusted off my old graphic design skills. I collaged layers of texture and colour to create a vibrant visual language that contrasts with crisp, clean typography.
I knew the portfolio pieces would be live code embedded in resizable iframes rather than static images, but I was blown away by how well it works in practice. The site looks amazing in the browser and is very very quick, especially considering everything it's doing. Kudos to Andy and developer Leanne Renard for making this design work so well.
