I’m a fan of anything that gives a site a distinct flavor. In the case of Hello Studios, it’s the monster theme. The beautiful illustration drives the overall style of the site, and although it’s yet another one-page site, it has so much life and personality you really want to know more. It draws me in and disarms me—instead of expecting some pretentious group of designers, I know this is an easygoing team.
