A dynamic brand update and website for More Media, fueled by a font we're obsessed with – Whyte Inktrap from Dinamo Typefaces, which reimagines "ink traps," used in hot press printing days-of-yore to avoid ink overflow, in our modern digital world.

Over 10 years memories can get a bit fuzzy, so we tapped Funkhaus Partners Dave, Drew, and Nick to fill in the blanks – Mad Libs style. Read them at the link below.

Artificial Intelligence Foundation

The Artificial Intelligence Foundation is at the forefront of AI technology’s application towards interactive, “digital humans.” Not only is the concept itself advanced, the use cases are incredibly nuanced and require a deft presentation to educate the general public on how it all works. Our task in building the website was to convey this complex story to multiple target audiences, making sure that it wasn’t the standard, cold, intimidating approach of a digital future world.

Greenpoint Pictures

Greenpoint Pictures has been crafting iconic work and telling stories across mediums since 2003, and this year we got to help them tell their story with a full digital re-brand.

Their new identity balances their Brooklyn roots with their grown-up evolution; it's both edgy and sophisticated. On the website front, the Greenpoint team encouraged us to be creative and brave, and in turn we made them non-traditional layouts that show off their work, which is further brought to life through motion and their brand colors.

A deserved brand update for a veteran production team

We worked with the teams at Yours Truly Creative and Keep Cool to create an immersive website to memorialize that experience, and are honored to be a part of a project that celebrates creative forces coming together to do what they do best. #SongsFromScratch is now live.

Doing What We Can to Keep Guatemala Fed

Funkhaus Partner and Creative Director Dave Funkhouser first met Jesse Schauben, founder and owner of Tacorazon in Guatemala, over burritos at the start of 2020. Within months of their meeting, COVID-19 decimated Guatemala’s already insecure economy. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Since then, Jesse has responded by creating El Pendiente, a community fridge based on donations, and Tacorazon Central Kitchen, adapted from the model used by World Central Kitchen. Members of the Funkhaus team have stepped in along the way, providing support with a logo design, content assistance, and more. Find out how you can support Tacorazon Central Kitchen’s work.

Im playing tomorrow at Funkhaus alongside my dear Alienata and DJ Hell . What most people do not know is that I used to be part of International Deejay Gi**lo Records ´roster, as leChic; a female Dj duo with my best friend back in Madrid. We hated that name, by the way, but that´s another story. 😁 He discovered us when we were just baby DJs, invited us to play to some of his infamous parties, both in Spain and Germany and in a blink we found ourselves playing at some of the best clubs and festivals in Europe, it was surreal. I have very good memories of those times, and I thank him for believing in us so early. 🙏🏻 Our careers took quite divergent paths and this will be the first time we will play together in 10 + years. I guess it was about time 🥂
28 of the Best Made Websites from February 2020 It’s the last day of February, so it’s the perfect time to showcase some excellent website inspiration this time I’ve collected twenty-eight of the best websites that been either made or published during February. In today’s post, I’m publishing 28 of the best websites that have made that could inspire you for your next website build, as I always like seeing what other developers have been building either for themselves or for a web client. *All of the websites that been featured on #SomeWhatCreative monthly website inspiration are always in no particular order.
