I’m pretty excited about this one. A while back, the incredibly soulful young chauntreusse Kelsey Wild commissioned us to do a website for her. We initially went ahead with a design that was based on real life photography of Kelsey cut out and placed among black and white sketchbook-esque drawings of natural scenery and animals. We got as far as having a hired photographer do a shoot, doing all of the illustrations, and actually coding out and almost getting ready to launch the site when Kelsey had some second thoughts about the whole idea. The look was pretty cool in and of itself, but she didn’t feel it represented her aesthetic sense as an artist, which is always our first and foremost goal when associating imagery to a person or band. It has to be something they feel comfortable putting their name on. Naturally Kelsey and I went back to the drawing board and she came up with some great ideas about going more organic and handmade, rustic but not country. So here’s what I came up with…
I constructed six differnt “found art” collages comprised of various pieces of junk, bits of paper, old receipts, scraps from heather’s sewing table and other random objects that I found laying around my house. I then photographed them and strung them all together in Photoshop to make a continual horizontal image, which would actually be about six feet long if laid out in real life.

The website will scroll horizontally when a navigation button is clicked and each collage will act as a frame for the content at that location. It will make more sense when it’s completed… Anyway, this was incredibly fun and definitely a challenge, as I’ve never done anything like this before.
The office took the biggest hit-
I’ll make sure to post when the site goes live.
