Love the color palette and color coding, the geometric logo also echoed in the backgrounds, how the squares morph into circles, the use of every-versatile Futura.

The touch of icon animation on the sliding menu to the left is a reflection of the growing popularity in dynamic interactions on webpages. I find it interesting that they’re atypical forms and the most familiar one belongs to the studio name / logo. It’s also fascinating to see how blocks of photos rearrange and collapse responsively.

Besides the illustrations, there’s something equally quirky with the artwork title that continuously scrolls horizontally on hover. There’s also the loading animation of a melon (in reference to one of the works) whose seeds represent the familiar trailing dots.

This one’s clean, classy, and quiet in black and white. I also like the bento-style footer navigation, which spaces out the icons instead of occupy as minimal space as possible just because they’re small.
