Founded in 2014, Boulder, Colorado–based product-focused design firm Emerson Stone crafts memorable brands and digital experiences for its clients. Influenced by traditional, midcentury design firms in its layout and illustration styles, Emerson Stone’s site is no less memorable, offering a distinctively editorial feel that encourages visitors to not only treat the site like a portfolio site, but also as a source of inspiration. Various case studies into Emerson Stone’s portfolio provide a window into the design firm’s creative process and its relationship with its clients. The navigation bar at the top only displays the four main pages with several others hidden under a hamburger menu titled More; this includes a page for Emerson Stone’s initiative, Free Design Friday, in which the design firm opens its doors to local Boulder businesses for a talk on their branding and strategy. An interactive contact form walks visitors through the process of describing themselves and the project they want done as it slowly takes over the Contact page.
