Holiday Gift Guide 2015
Hipertextual has been compiling Holiday Gift Guides for the last couple of years. For 2014 we created a custom layout in a couple of days and because we weren’t the most happy with it we decided to create a new one for 2015 with a bit more time and love.
This is what came out of it and it made us really happy!
To make it even more special I decided to create a custom hand-lettered piece for the header.
Hipertextual is one of the most important online media in Spanish, covering subjects like technology, culture and science. This project involved the redesign of all their former websites providing them with a great look and a flexible base.
We went through many changes during the early stages trying to find that perfect design we were looking for. Down the road we recognized that the design was never going to be 100% perfect because the editorial strategy as well as the company kept constantly changing. So instead we decided to setup a good and flexible base in which we could constantly iterate to make it better and match the editorial needs as they shifted.
Telefónica it's one of the many clients that I work with while I worked at Hipertextual. One of the biggest projects we did together was the redesign of their blog Think Big which is a publication focused on technology, science and innovation.
They wanted to redesign the theme of the blog because it gave them many issues regarding speed, function and the overall look and feel of the web. So me and my team decided to give it a modern look while keeping the classic blog arrangement which was important to the client. We also met with the Brand Department of Telefonica to make it appropriate with their new guidelines.
