Dep Designs

Showcasing the beauty in architecture

Dep Designs, an architecture studio based in Maryland, needed a clean, simple, and modern website to showcase and reflect its works. Furthermore, the website must be easy to update.

The homepage features a full-screen image slider, which powered by David DeSandro’s Flickity, to showoff some of Dep’s projects. The portfolio section is based on DeSandro’s Masonry to display various sizes for each project.

The entire site powered by Bastian Allgeire’s Kirby, which is a powerful, file-based content management system that allowed me to make most of the automations for the site. To update the homepage, portfolio section, and individual projects, the client simply needs to prepare all of the images and upload them to the CMS. Kirby will take care of the links, images, and sliders. This is my first time using Kirby and I am loving it.

The typeface is set in Impallari Type’s Libre Franklin, which is an interpretation and expansion of the 1912 Morris Fuller Benton classic.

What excited me about this project is that I have never done a website for an architecture design studio. Furthermore, Dep, which means beauty in Vietnamese, is founded by two Vietnamese architects. I am proud to work and connect with our Vietnamese-American talents.
