Us are music & commercials directors.
This is their Fabrik.
Us are Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor. They met while studying at Kingston on the BA Graphic Design course. The duo's first successful collaboration came in the form of a music video for Thom Yorke as part of the D&AD student awards, winning 1st place. In late 2007 they formed Us, a multi-disciplinary design studio, the focus of which then moved towards directing & moving image work.
2011 saw them receive the award for Best New Directors at the UK MVA's and Best Urban video for 'Numbers In Action' which also received a MOBO nomination. Their teaser film for Benga’s new album, has received accolades highlighted from Creative Review, Shots and The Reel. The sculpture created in the film has also been bought by Soundcloud. Their excellent join the dots promo for Foals was also a Vimeo 'Staff Pick'.
Commercially, Us have directed work for Honda, Talk Talk, McDonalds and The Sunday Times through Grey, London. The latter has recently been included in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Director Showcase, won the Young Director Award for Best Broadcast Commercial and picked up a Bronze Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival.
Chris and Luke are part of Fabrik's founding team and here they're using a customised version of our Calico theme for their site. They've kept things minimal throughout, splitting their portfolio into Commercials and Music Videos. Simple cover image layouts let the work speak for itself. Each project is accompanied by a series of stills which gives the project page a distinctive look within their portfolio.
No more messing around in Photoshop, just upload your work! Fabrik will automatically generate perfectly sized and optimised versions of your images to make sure they look great on your site regardless of what device or screen size your audience are using - from mobile through to HiDPI and Retina screens.
The days of dealing with your own hosting are well and truly over. Fabrik’s hosting environment is properly next-level. Let us spend our time thinking about things like load-balancing, geo-locational efficiency, site-caching and scaling infrastructure. We have people here that enjoy that sort of thing, you just get on with making great work.
Within each theme choose from a variety of layouts to fine-tune how your content is presented. From grids of small, medium or large thumbnails to stacks, magazine layouts, gallery slideshows and fullscreen options - find the perfect fit yourself. And the best news of all; you can change layouts from page to page too, so if one project looks better in one layout then go with it.
