rss Marketing und Sales Services
[August 2011 // website + animation]
ss Marketing und Sales Services asked us to come up with a fresh concept for their new website. In order to loosen up the rather stiff field of business and sales we created 5 stop-motion animations that playfully explain the major claims.
In combination with the very strict typographic grid and the reduced use of colours the website differs quite a bit from the usual business sites
… which makes us very happy — and the client as well!
