O’Brien Architects

O'Brien Architects is a small architecture firm in Dallas, TX. They are family owned and operated and approached us to give their current brand a refresh. The project started with updated the type in their logo and the second leg was to completely overhaul their website. Some of the requests were that the concepts were clean and simple with lots of type. This design took that idea to the extreme, and used an oversized navigation to give the layout a bit of edge and personality. Because their brand colors are a burned orange, a little goes a long way so 2px orange rule lines were enough to break up the white without overpowering it. A large part of the website is their portfolio featuring all of the buildings and projects they've designed. Here, a long scroll layout was used to show O'Brien how they could tell a story about the design process behind each building.
