Tokonoma (Helen Stefanie)
Q: Why do you have a Brutalist Website?
A: I feel a strong connection to early diy web aesthetics, and that’s why a certain glossiness is sometimes too much for me. I love websites that are rugged, or a little too crisp, and with some letters flowing over and out of the elements… But also, I think brutalist design is about accessibility-What’s the most important information, and how can I make it instantly accessible to users without flourishes? How do I deal with screen readers, or people who are overwhelmed by too much visual information? A side effect is that a simple design like this is easy to adapt for mobile browsers and still remains recognizable.
Q: Who designed the website?
A: It was designed and coded by Helen Stefanie.
