Based in Houston, Texas, the architectural firm Dillon Kyle Architects creates contemporary designs with a strong sense of heritage and place for everything from houses to educational facilities. To encapsulate both its artistic mission and the extensive body of work it has created over 20 years, New York City–based creative firm The Future Forward designed a site for the architectural firm that shows off its expertise and its company culture. Large imagery, smooth page transitions and custom scrolling features work together to showcase ten galleries of more than 30 of Dillon Kyle Architects’ projects. Seeking to buck the typical hamburger-menu trend, The Future Forward created a custom icon that reveals the full navigational menu as visitors hover over it. The PHP- and MySQL-based CMS MODX provides the site with its back end and front end; The Future Forward used HTML5 and CSS3 to create the site, and AJAX enables the site’s seamless transitions between pages. The site has received accolades from Awwwards and Mindsparkle Mag.
