In 2017 they approached Naam Agency to help redesign and refocus their website. As Naam's Digital Creative Director, I helped create the project's strategy and design from start to finish.

An eclectic mix of paintings, sculptures, installations, and community projects, combined with a confusing information architecture, made the old site difficult to navigate.

We brought back clarity and made the work and its creators stand out.

During the process we created a few main questions to help us structure our information, and keep the user & business needs in mind.

How might we create an online presence that is outspoken of itself, but makes the art stand out even more?

And this is small answers.

How might we create a space for their community, of both visitors and artists?

And this is small answers.

How might we present the incredible detail in the artwork?

And this is small answers.

How might we approch the site more like an archie, and focus on the ability for creamco to easily add work, iniatives and projects.

And this is small answers.

How might we present their work as collections, and allow them to be presented as series (that took many years to create)?

And this is small answers.

Typographic Navigation

With a wide variety of visual images to present on the website, we created a calm color palette supported by clean and clear typography. After that, we took it one step further and created a 'hero' section where an impressive typographic block allows you to navigate the work of Cream Co.
