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 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.
