Simple, yet characterful. Tight, but edgy. These are the ideas that guided the design of Copenhagen-based digital design duo Norgram’s site. Formed by Sebastian Gram and Mathias Høst Normark—the gram and nor of Norgram respectively—the studio creates work that follows a strong design ethos: Successful work comes from a clear sense of purpose. That purpose provides the explorative process by which innovative design occurs. Collaboration is key to creating not only great work, but fresh ideas. And timeless design is always best.
Gram and Normark collaborated with indie video game studio Set Snail’s developer Morten Claussen and turned the typical site on its side. Visitors must scroll horizontally to access the site’s content, like turning pages in a book; this distinct system enabled Gram and Normark to attempt a new method of making page layouts. A project gallery showcases Norgram’s work with expansive case studies, walking readers through the duo’s thoughtful design process. A pop-up menu on the site’s left border enables easy access to navigation, as well as company information and social links. A simple black-and-white layout with a tight grid and clean typography makes the site a pleasure to browse.
