Funny or Die
Will Ferrell and Adam McKay created this online comedy platform in 2007. We completely redesigned the brand identity and website, which now allows visitors to easily navigate and explore Funny or Die’s exclusive content. After the new site launched, desktop and mobile traffic doubled, turning Funny or Die into a premier online destination for comedy.

The Shoto iPhone app makes it easy for friends and family to automatically share their digital photos and photo albums. For Shoto’s identity, website, and app, we created a modern, functional aesthetic designed to make the photo sharing process a snap.
