Entwistle & Cappucci Law Firm Website

By Brand Identity, Law Firms, Websites



This New Jersey-based firm wanted to convey their strong presence in New York City. To achieve this, we went up to the roof of their building and photographed the view in 360 degrees and stitched it together into an infinity motion graphic. In addition to the site, we created their brand identity.

This photo is one of my favorites. It shows a man using two chairs to cross a large puddle in a Paris park. The site has hundreds of pages and displays in several languages. For the recruiting section, we produced candid video interviews of dozens of partners and associates about cases, life at the firm and other relevant topics.
