Create an online presence for the recently formed investment arm of Technicolor. The primary goal of the site was to help establish an online track record of investments, in a single scrolling landing page that stood out from common VC sites of that era.
A quick representation of the responsive nature of the website.
To help solidify the visual direction, I wireframed an overview of the website, to sequence the order of slides that would be presented. Since each slide would represent a key element or individual company, the requirement lent itself to more of a vertical slideshow navigation style.

The core elements needed for a portfolio company slide.
With the visual direction defined, the next phase was to find a website framework that would enable me to communicate the visual direction of the site. Services like Squarespace were promising, but costly in comparison to direct hosting and one-time payment bootstrap themes. So I searched and decided on a framework from the esteemed firm, Designmodo and their product Slides.
Love Sublime Text, however I decided on Atom due to its active development.
FINAL CODED WEBSITE
The final outcome is a colorful, vibrant and graphic presentation of an venture capital firm that stood out from the rest. No hilarious videos or headline grabbing portfolio exits. But a mobile friendly and interesting representation of honest investment in technology and innovation.

As the investment portfolio grew, the number of companies displayed did too. Below are a collection of some of my favorite slides displayed on the website.
