AWWWARDS Honorable Mention – Intentionallies web design

February 14, 2018

AWWWARDS Honorable Mention
Intentionallies web design
http://www.intentionallies.co.jp/

 

We are proud to announce that our design for the website for Intentionallies was awarded with an “Honorable Mention” by the coveted web design award AWWWARDS.

AWWWARDS
award : Honorable Mention
project name : Intentionallies – web design

www.intentionallies.co.jp

 

AWWWARDS recognizes and awards exceptional talent among web designers, developers, and agencies from all over the world, and offers a platform where digital design experts can inspire and share knowledge with each other.

We, artless Inc., had the pleasure of designing the renewed website for the architecture label Intentionallies. Our design initiated with an idea of having a website that can only represent Intentionallies. On top of the conventional way of displaying works with its titles and image thumbnails, we created their own filtering tool called ’tags’, which was inspired from ‘design codes’ that Intentionallies create for each project. Not just the names of clients or buildings, we utilized the very own words from Intentionallies and made them into the central design element of the website. The design is made bold and daring, yet minimal and professional, to represent an architecture label that has a history of more than 20 years.

AWWWARDS 2018
award : Honorable Mention
project name : Intentionallies – web design

www.intentionallies.co.jp

 

AWWWARDSは、グローバルに活動するデジタルデザインのエキスパートがアイディアを見つけ、知識を与え合い、互いに評価し合う場を実現するべく、世界中のwebデザイナー、デベロッパー、エージェンシーの中から才能を見出し、活動の一環として毎年アワードを開催しています。

artless Inc.が手がけたのは鄭秀和氏が率いる建築レーベル Intentionallies のwebデザインで、Intentionallies だからこそできる新しいポートフォリオサイトの仕組みを考えました。従来のポートフォリオサイトに見るような画像、プロジェクトタイトルの一覧に加え、閲覧モード「タグ」を追加。Intentionallies が設計時に各プロジェクトに設ける「デザインコード」から着想を得た、独自の方法でプロジェクトをフィルタリングできる仕組みです。クライアント名や建物名とは異なる、Intentionallies 自身の言葉をデザインの大きな要素とし、大胆でありながらも、設立から20年以上経つ建築レーベルに合うようなミニマルでプロフェッショナルな空気感を大事にしました。

We were in charge of designing New Year Card 2018 for Plan Do See Inc.

Plan Do See Inc. is well known for pioneering the original wedding in Japan, nowadays they operates not only weddings, but hotels and restaurants worldwide with Japanese “Omotenashi” spirit.

Mainly using symbols, we designed to have sense of unity for 8 properties that have different themes, Japanese, Western or mix of both.
Our goal was to make the cards to be delighted for recipient. Each brand color is used for base color, gold color is used partially, and symbols are inspired by each property’s concept and location, while keeping Japanese New Year’s motif.

この度 artless Inc.は株式会社 Plan Do Seeの2018年度年賀状デザインを担当致しました。

オリジナルウェディングの先駆けとして業界を牽引してきたPlan Do Seeは日本の「おもてなしの心」を大切に、現在ウェディング業のみならず、国内外のホテルやレストランの運営を行っています。

和洋テーマの違う8店舗のホテル・レストランを、統一感を持たせつつ、シンボルをメインとし、受け取った方が嬉しくなるような年賀状を意識しました。
ベースカラーには各店舗のブランドカラーを使い、また部分的に金色を使用し、シンボルはそれぞれの店舗コンセプトや土地からインスピレーションを得たお正月モチーフに落とし込んでいます。

web design for Satoyama Jujo

graphic design: hitomi yasuda, kanako ueno, noey nitipon, artless Inc.
web programming: katakuriko inc.

 

We were in charge of designing english website for Satoyama Jujo, a lifestyle inn located in Niigata prefecture, Japan.

Satoyama Jujo is one of the two hotels in Japan that has been selected by Design Hotels. The building was originally an old Japanese folk house aged 150 years old, renovated and redesigned by Toru Iwasa – founder of lifestyle magazine “Jiyujin.” Designer furnitures exampled by Scandinavian furnitures, breathe in new attractiveness to the traditional charms of the folk house, creating a comfortable harmony.

This design is mainly about the large use of photography to convey the utmost Satoyama Jujo’s signature, such as marvelous scenery, food, architecture and art. Each page is guided by clicking full width photo banner. We selected elegant serif font that matches to tasteful yet modern and sophisticated building. Much space is taken up around the typography to make beautiful photography stand out.

We would highly recommend you to stay the hotel for Satoyama Jujo’s luxury experience that you wouldn’t gain in big cities.

artless Inc.は、新潟県に位置する宿泊施設「里山十帖」の英語ウェブデザインを担当しました。

ライフスタイル雑誌「自遊人」創刊者、岩佐十良氏プロデュース及び運営、古民家をリノベーションして建てられたこの施設は、日本では2つしか選出されていないDesign Hotelsのひとつでもあります。北欧家具をはじめとするデザイナーズ家具たちが、築後約150年、総欅づくり、総漆塗りの空間に活き、心地よい空間を生み出しています。

今回のデザインでは、里山十帖ならではの絶景、食、建築、アートなどの魅力を最大限に伝えるため、写真をメインに大きく使用しています。それぞれのページはサイト幅いっぱいに使用した写真バナーから進めるようデザインしました。風情のある建物でありながら、モダンで洗練されたこの施設に合うよう、フォントは品のあるセリフフォントを選択。タイポグラフィと余白の関係を大切にデザインしています。

新潟にご宿泊の際は、都会では味わえないラグジュアリーを是非一度ご体感ください。

We were in charge of packaging design for binned products, produced by Satoyama Jujo, a lifestyle inn located in Niigata prefecture, Japan.

Satoyama Jujo is one of the two hotels in Japan that has been selected by Design Hotels. The building was originally an old Japanese folk house aged 150 years old, renovated and redesigned by Toru Iwasa – founder of lifestyle magazine “Jiyujin.” Designer furnitures exampled by Scandinavian furnitures, breathe in new attractiveness to the traditional charms of the folk house, creating a comfortable harmony.

The design initiated from thinking how Satoyama Jujo enables to translate traditional context into modern-day sensibilities. By blending Japanese elements, such as map and vertical texts, with English copywriting, we attempted to achieve a design with universal appeal, for audience from both outside and inside of Japan. Minimal and elegant design for authenticity, while the dynamically laid out hand-written font plays a role as a pattern, as well as an expression for Satoyama Jujo’s handmade charms.

今回のデザインでは、新潟をはじめとする日本の食や伝統文化を、現代の感性に落とし込み海外に発信している「里山十帖らしさ」を考えるところから始まりました。日本地図や縦組みのテキストを用い、和のエッセンスを散りばめながら、英文との併記にこだわることで、グローバルなオーディエンスにも受け入れられるデザインにしています。ミニマルで上品なデザインでありながら、大胆にレイアウトされた手書き書体が、「柄」の役割を果たすと同時に、里山十帖ならではの「手作り感」を表現しています。
