Squarespace + Leon Bridges

In a unique collaboration between Squarespace and Leon Bridges, we worked with renowned photographer Danny Clinch to chronicle this musician's incredible rise to fame. We didn't have to try all that hard to show Leon’s humble approach to his newfound musical career. With Danny behind the lens, we captured all the soulful moments that make the man, and now get to share Leon's story through film and a beautiful site co-developed with the talented team over at Squarespace.

 

Pushing boundaries within the platform, and using this project to test new features for the mass market, we helped developed Leon's site from the ground up. Inspired by the use of white space found in liner notes of traditional vinyl records, our minimal page layout takes advantage of the beautiful parallax scrolling provided by Squarespace. Holding a line between old and new, Leon's site is a testament to a man who is excited about where he's going, and thankful for where he's been.

 
 
 
 

Effortlessly cool and confident, we took cues from Leon's personality to create simple layouts with large type and minimal color.
