Video gallery and photoblog for the New York-based cinematographer. Joe couldn’t choose between dark and light themes, so we opted to let visitors decide (click the light bulb).
A political blog and online organizing hub for the New York-based P.A.C.
Girlcate‘s baking blog is our first foray into the world of epicurean erotica. We designed the site and populate it with pictures, and like to think we’ve become pretty proficient taste-testers in the process.
Showcasing the commercial, music video, and documentary work of the New York production house.
An organizing hub for New york’s transit advocacy organization, including a blog, events calendar, multiple forms and a host of useful information. We branded the Alliance from the ground up, from their logo through the playful, rounded edges and friendly colors seen throughout their site.
We view our role broadly, often providing our clients with logos, illustrations, photographs, and copy. (We’ve even been known to contribute to blogs we’ve built.) Whether you need a complete branding package or just a banner illustration to finish your look, we’re here to help. To discuss your project, contact kenan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reel site with custom Vimeo player and integrated production blog.
Integrated gallery and E-commerce (Big Cartel) sites to show off and sell this small Brooklyn company’s handcrafted wood-and-resin wonders.
Bear Bones is a punky New Jersey recording studio. We designed their logo and branding and built them this kick-ass website, complete with a custom quicktime audio player to show off the sweet sounds made there.
A showcase for the work of this architectural designer of the rich and famous.
A multiple-user showcase site for a new format. Try it; it’s fun (we know first-hand).
Fiction writer Eliyanna Kaiser is the enterprising sort who resolved to build her own website. She came to us for a banner illustration to top it off (click to enlarge):
Camera and lighting rental for film and video in Brooklyn. Logo by Cassandra Ellis: Studios.
A new home for the beloved webcomic. Coming Soon.
We designed this t-shirt for Greenpoint’s beloved WORD bookstore (click to enlarge):
Boy Blue specializes in recreating the organic textures and patterns of the material world in a digital environment. Though much of our work is for the web, we retain our fondness for things and their infinite imperfections. It’s probably why so many people who make things come to us for their web design. Rather than cultivating a “house style,” we tailor our work meticulously to yours. It’s why our sites don’t look like anyone else’s.
This is one our own pet projects: A webcomics site that prioritizes an intuitive and fun reader experience, like the medium of comics has boasted for a hundred years. (Clunky webcomics sites are a pet-peeve.) At the same time, the site takes advantage of its format’s unique possibilities, allowing readers to call up maps, author annotations, reader comments and more at any time. (We make the comic, too.)
An online gallery and extensive archive of the artist’s work.
We collaborated with the author and Columbia University Press on a cover for this book of cosmological inquiry, and then built a site to match.
An online calculator to help people determine their charitable giving.
A quiet site for a brilliant cartoonist.
An online gallery of the artist’s beautiful and distressing paintings.
Boy Blue was unwittingly founded by Kenan, an artist and designer in Brooklyn, when he concluded the only way he was going to get a decent website that didn’t look exactly like everybody else’s was to make it himself. He soon found he was not the only one looking for unique, high-quality, accessible web design. He maintains his personal journal and online sketchbook at underthehaystack.net.
