Lateral Addition

Identity / Development / Typography

Lateral Addition is a long-running web platform that commissions music and sound-art from composers all over the world. I designed a new identity for the project, and built a new version of the site, moving it from a hard-coded static site to a responsive front-end powered by a flat-file CMS.

Lateral Addition follows a strict semi-annual publication schedule, so the site employs a unique scrolling timeline for navigation, with new entries quite literally "added laterally". A text-only interface compliments the site's "playfully academic" tone, and lets the typography shine. The wordmark wraps brutalist letterforms around a unicode glissando, a discrete musical continuum.
