Our pals Jonny & Richard over @castiron just released their new website and it's quite lovely.
We've followed the design/build process fairly intently as their studio is in Todd's hood and we like hanging out with these guys. Speaking confidently from the sidelines, the site has truly been a labor of love.
To start, Jonnny & Richard shot and retouched all of the photography themselves - no small feat for any highly productive two-man studio these days. And the photography is very good. They focused intensely on composition (grid systems, information hierarchy and overall structure) and paid particular attention to typography (one of their specialties) and all to great effect. Their attention to display size and breakpoint responsiveness relating to both composition and typography errs on the side of maniacal (in all the best ways). The work itself is very strong and the new site makes that more apparent than ever. These two got the details right and it shows.
Check out their philosophy on environmental responsibility.
This is commendable, considered work - worthy of attention. Congratulations guys.
