When chatting with Morgan about Portland culture and architecture, one cannot help but be swept up in his vision and enthusiasm. This vibrancy shows through in the buildings he cultivates, from our old stomping grounds, OMCC, to his next monumental project. This is what makes J&R Group so captivating and why we were thrilled to bring their vision to the world wide web.
Clean, Modern Design
J&R Group owns and operates a number of properties in the Portland area. They came to us to create a website with a youthful and visually interesting approach. The homepage layout was a fun design task, one that required us to find a balance between the grandeur and large-scale beauty of the J&R Group’s properties and the finer details that make their interiors and settings unique. It became important for us to see the connection between the way a staircase crosses in front of a wooden wall and the way the Tanasbourne building’s roofline stretches into the sky and to highlight those similarities.
Intent on allowing those details to stand on their own against a stark background, we kept navigation to the individual projects hidden on initial view, only showing links to the individual properties when someone mouses over them. The result is a website that is as unique and clean as the properties they own and operate.
