Do you guys have any work to share or a link? Be Blunt AF and show us something haha
Yup. Show us the goods already.
Broken.af for me in Safari.
Weird scrolljacking here. I'm confused.
My guess; attempt at making the website repeat endlessly.
Yeah, I don't get it.
Swearing is part of any vocabulary — if used correctly. Brilliant designers like Spiekermann swear. Just deal with it already.
As for the site I like it. The type pairing is a bit trendy but I enjoy it very much. Also, I really loved the idea of this simple typography-only endless homepage. However, I do think that the icons/illustrations do not go well with the site’s aesthetics.
Words only hold the value and meaning you attach to them. The sooner we all understand this, the sooner we can move past petty squabbles started over misinterpreted syntax.
In other words: I'm with ya!
Not a fan of vulgarities, but if that's your brand, then that's your brand. I'm confused if this is a site that expresses what you guys want to do on your own, or if you're inviting clients to hire you. If the latter is the case, I imagine some businesses would get the impression that working with a studio like this would be frustrating, meaning conversations and suggestions would be met with arguments and folded arms. However, you may not be trying to attract traditional businesses as clients.
Those are just my initial perceptions. Best of luck!
It's sooo edgy when agencies or designers use swear words in their branding to make them stand out or seem cool. I cringe every time I see it.
Sometimes you have to go too far before you realize it's best not to.
The scroll broke for me and I ended up seeing a site about a company called RIIINT.
Like everyone else really, I'm confused by what they do and what makes them "blunt af"- I assume they are blunt.af because they don't give a shit about clients and users that much and do their own amazing thang no matter what and go fuck yourself if you're not on board?
Sweet baby Jesus, what the hell are you doing to my scroll?
Ok? Is this an agency, or?
I like the bold design but I also think the messaging is 'off'. Recently there was another site here from a copywriter with a slider to show his pitch as a 'hard sell' or a 'soft sell'. It got the point across well in a fun way.
This might work better with a 'how many fucks I give about - design | apps | research etc. - " sort of gimmick.
The copywriting one is "edgy" in a way, although it perfectly communicates to people what copywriting is and the value of it. It demonstrates that the copywriter is incredibly capable of writing range of text in a large range of tones. It also has a single clear coherent message that is communicated towards the user in addition to having a portfolio that shows his work.
As several persons have mentioned, this site does not achieve this. On one hand it is loud and abrasive, "Blunt. As Fuck," while on the other hand it uses ironically uses something more along the lines of corporate speak with words such as "hope, challenge, inspire" which run completely contrary to the tone of the giant header and the general bold, abrasive typography.
Then it ends with soft edged, cute, pastel colored iconography.
If they really are "Blunt. As Fuck," they really need to either go all the way and stay consistent or change their design direction.
Put your money where your mouth is and use an appropriately offensive browser tab emoji.
You have a killer call to action!
That's a perfect example on how to use a real infinite scroll! I love it ;)
