Ocean Powell needed a website for the YouTube channel, and filming group, Dark Space Studios. The website would be used mainly for recruitment and portfolio purposes. The site needed to have nonintrusive ways to point people towards the join page, and a attractive looking way to display all the videos.
Fullwidth Embedded Video
Each project page has a fullwidth video that maintains its aspect ratio when scaled.
Ocean wanted a website that feels alive. He wanted to avoid having static pages that didn’t have anything exciting about them. Each page needed something that made it seem interesting,
and it needed to be at the top of the page.
Ocean and I figured out ways to make every page an exciting experience. The landing, meet the team, contact us and join pages all feature a living banner on desktop. The video pages have their navigation hidden before scrolling, and a fullwidth embedded YouTube video at the top of the page.
