Pen and Lens Design Earns a Webby Honoree for Best Website Homepage Design

With a website homepage that breaks the mold, Pen and Lens Design has been awarded Honoree for Akimbo Type Foundry's Homepage design.

We don't enter competitions to brag about the award, rather, we enter design competitions to make sure our work is the best it can be by competing with the best in the world. There's no better test of a website design project than The Webbys, an international competition dating back to 1996. The Webby's are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS) who are internet experts, visionaries, and associate members.

To say I'm humbled to be a part of this selection is an understatement. The award, which was ultimately given to Apple's Arcade Takeover homepage, goes to show that good design principles outweigh big names, big budgets, and large teams at work. As a design studio, it's always nice to be named alongside Apple, Google, Landor, and more increidle agencies.

The website is designed and built on an oversized canvas, thinking of the browser as a viewport. This lets users scroll in any direction and discover a plethora of content on their own terms.
The website is riddled with moving gifs, typeface specimens, merchandise, and more. All of this content sits on a modular grid and overlays a background video made from a custom Snapchat Face filter that acts as a confessional screen.
