Studio Ostendo operates in multiple creative fields including photography, design, and education.
Akimbo.black is a typographic persona created to escape the confines of economic design work. Speculating on visual forms, typography, and digital connectedness, the foundry needed a website that matched the playfulness of the work and attention-spasms of the studio.
The Akimbo Type Foundry Website enters with a brief introduction, then a wall of custom typefaces, glyphs, gifs, videos, calls to action, and social tags. All of this acts as a visual confessional screen to a face-filter background video. The website presents the user with any and all options of content the studio produces in a way that allows the user to explore and discover.
