Mind Candy

Website Design

"I've known Michael for many years and he's a very friendly, supportive and active part of the London tech scene. We worked with him on the redesign of our website and were very pleased with the results. I have no hesitation in recommending him."
- Michael Acton Smith, Founder, Mind Candy

"I had the pleasure of working with Michael when I was responsible for the total redesign of Mind Candy's website. Michael produced some excellent ideas even though we gave him a very vague brief and the resulting website was exactly what we were looking for. He met all deadlines, no matter how tight, and his work was always of the highest standard. On top of all that, Michael is an absolute pleasure to work with - important when you are undertaking a project that can often be stressful due to the high number of stakeholders. I have no hesitations in recommending Michael to anyone and I look forward to working with him again in the future."
- Victoria Tomlinson, Head of Communications and People, Mind Candy

Mind Candy is an entertainment company that creates magical brands with a digital heart. Most famous for 'Moshi Monsters' and with more brands on the way, this was a fun project to work on! Thanks go to the awesome Kevin Plattret who worked on build.

As part of my design process I like to present multiple options for my clients, and with Mind Candy, it was a pleasure to come up with quirky designs and illustrations to fit the brief. My favourite un-used concept was the illustration of their iconic reception desk, which is a huge tree log! I had a few options which fit the brief, but were not chosen in the end. It would be a shame to not let them see the light of day, so below you can check out the unused variations of the homepage design.
