Matthew Siskin on the design of Obedient Sons’ website

Web designer Matthew Siskin, is becoming well known for translating designers’ often intimate vocabulary to the Internet. The overlapping Persian rugs in Obedient Sons & Daughters’ design studio inspired the oversize, horizontal approach to the fashion label’s  website. “I wanted to create that exact feeling you get when you walk into their office — to take their specific little world and put it online.” Framed ephemera such as the covers of vintage Penguin paperbacks and psychedelic Peter Max-designed posters jump from the walls to the Web, presented in seamless, scanning transitions.
