Manifesto Studios’ website for London production company Spindle combines simplicity and style. Visitors can easily browse Spindle’s roster of directors – and view recent projects – while responsive type and video add some subtle moments of delight.
The site aims to showcase Spindle’s focus on “telling compelling human stories”. “The team needed a new website to communicate this unique perspective, and wanted to be pushed creatively to stand out from the rest of the market,” says Manifesto.
The editorial-inspired design puts the focus on Spindle’s content, while colour and type give the site a distinctive look and feel. “This was all supported with subtle and sophisticated interactions and animations to build engagement with film in mind,” says Manifesto.
The studio worked with Spindle over a two-month period, developing a brand strategy and positioning alongside the website user experience, art direction and front- and back-end development.
