Quite Franklyn is a creative take on the phrase “quite frankly,” which means “honestly, candidly, to be truthful.” From the moment you hit the landing page, you’re introduced to a number of projects the company has worked on in the form of a slider. The slider can be manipulated with the use of the circle icons in the bottom center of the images.
The Brooklyn-based studio is kept busy and keeps potential customers up-to-date on their latest project by making it a part of their landing page. Scrolling down from the slider, you’ll find a number of “latest projects updates” laid out in a masonry grid format, surrounded by a pale gray colored negative space. Each update is labeled by a muted colored date that is left-aligned underneath each image.
Focusing on showcasing their work alone, Quite Franklyn utilizes a dynamic combination of charcoal gray, neon green and white to make the words stand out, but the pictures take precedence over everything else. The sans-serif font is used to briefly describe the project they took on and what the outcome was before launching into a number of crisp images enlarged to fit the entire screen. The large formatting of the images forces it into the eyes of the viewer to showcase the project.
There’s nothing like taking the chance to have some fun when looking through a company’s website and Quite Franklyn understands that. Head over to their Studio page to find out more about the company and find yourself in for a fun surprise as well.
Scroll to the area where you can learn about each one of the team members, and dive into a scratch-off game sure to make you giggle. With realistically-drawn images of each staff member, you’re able to see who works for Quite Franklyn, but you’ll also find yourself in for a surprise. Move your cursor over any of the illustrations and let the fun begin! Keep scratching at an illustration with your cursor to uncover a silly portrait of that person. Whether it's an '80s dude with a mullet or the woman who wants to be a cat, you’re sure to have fun discovering their inner personalities.
Taking creativity to the next level, Quite Franklyn combines quirky animations with clean formatting for a fresh take on their site. The use of flat colors against a plain backdrop makes every aspect of the page pop.
Franklyn is a beautiful website design in the Advertising, Arts & Recreation and Professional Services industries.
