Dark Burn is a creative agency developing trailers for the most popular video games out there. The existing website didn’t communicate their approach and attitude well. It also wasn’t presenting their work in a fun and engaging way.
So, Dark Burn hired TRIARE to come up with new designs and take care of the backend so that the website showcases lots of videos and other information but still loads super fast.
Since the client creates gameplay videos, the website has to contain lots of video material but remain lightning fast. Our goal was to maintain the balance between the informative and creative side of website pages. Some interesting design ideas were sacrificed for the sake of rich content that helps understand the company’s purpose and portfolio.
As loading speed is super-important for any website, we had to deal with lots of visual materials while keeping the page load fast and the content informative.
Another challenge was to make the admin interface as easy as possible so that further content management takes very little time saving the client’s efforts and money. The company will be adding information about other projects, and we made sure they could do so with no hustle.
Website designs for the homepage, portfolio, contacts, and other pages
Integration of a video library with filtering options

Animations that work differently depending on the user’s device
Value we delivered
Based on the company’s requirements, we built a fast and engaging website that perfectly speaks of Dark Burn’s accomplishments. It includes a whole video gallery of the agency’s works, with videos that can be filtered by game type. The behavior of website images and animations differs depending on the device: everything is individually tailored to desktop, tablet, and mobile users.
Dark Burn received a data-rich and fun website that demonstrates its portfolio right from the first glance. It allows users to click around and never get bored: all the pages and elements look stunning and load fast. Yet, the website is really simple in its structure, and the admin panel allows the company’s content managers to upload and publish new content as easy as pie.
