ERA404 loves work

Big Beach

The managing partners of Big Beach, Marc Turtletaub, Peter Saraf and Jeb Brody, contacted ERA404 about designing the corporate web presence for their production company, Big Beach. The site features their hero logo animation as an introduction (produced by an independent firm), movies, music, bios and information in a serene, flowing interface reminiscent of their Maui office and namesake, Big Beach. Seagulls soar, waves crash and menu items tumble in this unique and soothing navigation.

“ERA404 has the kind of enormous talent that more than matches their endless enthusiasm. They were able to create something that was coherent, smart, and fun—something we’re proud to have represent us—and they did it quickly and with a love for what they do.”
