Our design choices reflected a commitment to sustainability. From green web hosting to dark backgrounds, modest image sizes and mindful use of video. The strong typographic system ensured impact, especially when images were smaller, maintaining a balance of clarity and character. We created an adaptable toolkit that not only embraced a sustainable ethos but also strengthened Complicité’s experimental reputation.
Working closely with the team, we distilled Complicité’s range of activities across the site with intuitive navigation and clear calls to action. We ensured that their award-winning Learning & Engagement initiatives received as much attention as their productions, as well as creating an archive celebrating their brilliant collaborators. The Complicité team now have the autonomy, flexibility and confidence to promote themselves fully to all audiences.Read more+
