Love the stark white that is the canvas for New Media Studio out of Toronto – mainly because of the Northern Lights video background – cool intro. Like the filtered search on the Work page, and like that it’s not jQuery Masonry. And I think I’ll have to change some predictions on our Web Trends article we published at the beginning of the year – on the Services page, we’re seeing this theme of large background images and some type of list (sometimes with links) coming up more and more – but like how they do it here, because usually “services” pages are horrible, verbose, and just up there for SEO. This one is much better than that.

Insightful design, creative problem solving and great user experience are at the core of our studio practice. Focused on effective brand communication and meaningful experience for the user, we are passionate about our craft and the world around us.
