One of the more unusual tasks I’ve been entrusted with whilst working at Retrofuzz is to come up with a solution for Frank Ocean’s UK website’s homepage. The website had already been designed around a TV screen for Frank’s Channel Orange – all that was missing was a way of linking the pages together.
My solution involved reusing Frank Ocean’s promo videos by re-filming them on an old CRT TV (which I had found unwanted in my building) and messing with the connections to get a glitched / tuning effect. It’s nice to work within a conceptual brief that has enabled me to use an aesthetic that I really like.
You can view the video above, or it might make more sense if you have a look at it in action on the homepage of ChannelOrange.net.
