An excerpt from the interview with Bryonny Quinn from Its Nice That:
Byonny: How do you expect people to engage with your site? (there are quite a few special features)?
Hjalti Karlsson: We want people to put some effort in it — we don’t have a quick overview function for the busy people of this world – and there are more things than just our work on there.
There’s audio commentaries available for certain projects (and we will add more over time); “project related files” (our old digital sketches basically) for sale through a dedicated store (for you to have a look at our strictly digital design process); then you can browse through 172 images; we brought back the SPOKEN PORTFOLIO® (it has been with us for so long, we had to bring it back. It features the soothing voice of our dear friend and design colleague Paul Sahre — he did an amazing job); added a song; a hidden special; few more things and more to come.
