C'est ne pas un website
This site you are currently visiting is not so much a portfolio website, it is more an evolving experiment functioning as a laboratory for various web design concepts and field tests. As any website it is a work in progress, but for us it is also an experiment to see how different models of organizing content can be combined and can function together. We wanted to keep the content hierarchical and flexible. We wanted different media and different contexts to stand apart. And we wanted to be able to style different sections and different projects differently with different identities. And it’s all in here.
The heart of this experiment lies at the server side where a cascading content management system was build.
The cascade of this cascading content management system is the hierarchy of projects, subprojects and smaller items and artifacts which can be organized in a tree structure while on one hand the each type of media can have its specialized representation —a movie is depicted differently than a iOS app— and while on the other hand sections and projects can be styled with a visual identity that trickles down —cascading— to each separate item and subitem.
