Ali Ali

— Director's Portfolio Website

Minimal portfolio website for award-winning commercials director

Preface

Introduction

Ali Ali is a commercials director from Cairo, Egypt and the co-founder of Good People Films. Ali approached us to create a unique director’s portfolio that reflects the quality of his work, as well as his strong affinity for minimal design and typography.

Objective

Ali approached us earlier this year to create a unique director’s portfolio that reflects the quality of his work, as well as his strong affinity for minimal design and typography.

Solution

We have selected a contemporary sans-serif typeface that allows for distinct layout variations and dramatic size contrasts. We then brought the design to life by adding an experience layer of subtle animations and page transitions.

Webdesigner
The main page transition is one of the highlights of the website. We wanted to create a subtle left-to-right switch were the main typographic element moves along into the underlying bio page.
