Legenbon, a french-made online gallery

Hello dear Excessive community,

As most of you may not know, let me introduce myself properly.
Since August 29th, I am proudly co-founder of my company : Studio.gd, a graphic design, webdesign and mostly web development studio based on the east side of Paris. We are mainly working with web agencies or directly with customers when there is the opportunity.

Back in the days, my actual partner and our main freelance designer used to be alltogether partner of one other company, which has now disappeared (few of you may remember I guess..).
So now, new company, new customers and new ideas to make the web better for its users.

In this direction we recently decided to make a step forward compared to all general design blogs you can find on the internet. We had enough seeing always the same artists/designers advertised on these blogs with poor quality pictures/images of their work.
So here we come, we are now launching our brand new Online art gallery, also known as Legenbon.

This gallery only has one goal : offering monthly selection of artists in order to get to know them through their works and maybe find some inspiration Winking
Legenbon is mainly targeting graphic designers, web agencies and people who are keen on graphics.


Enough talking, I let you guys discover our work. I hope you'll appreciate both the format/navigation and the works selected for this 1st edition !

A last word : if you like it, here is our Facebook page, quite clean for the moment, but we are planning on adding way more content for the next edition.

Thank you for your time, and have a good day !

Vraiment tu gères le HTML5! Super bien conçu ton site, au début j'aurais cru de l'Actionscript ; pas mal aussi le clin d'oeil Legenbon Happy

Hehe thank for you comment, I appreciate any feedback, positive or negative. In your case its both so really thanky you.
About the english version : this might come pretty soon (maybe with the next edition ?). At the moment we did not really pay attention to that because we are focusing on making it popular first in France and as you can see there aren't that much content to translate. We've on added one credit slide at the end of each edition, so yes I think the english translation might fit better when time comes Happy

Thank you again for your feedback !

@Tanaka, thanks buddy Happy
Indeed we could have done this gallery with AS3 or such, but as you can see nowadays we can really replace that technology with more open ones. In Legenbon case, few CSS3 transitions, not that many lines of Javascript and some nice HTML5 compliant features do the trick perfectly !
I really think this way of coding and rendering websites is going to be used more and more by webdesigners and such !

For non french persons, a further explanation about the name.
Basically Legenbon means "The good ham" in english. But here in french, le = the, gen = gens = people, and finally bon = good. That's it !

Hehe thank you ! Despite the lack of repplies among here, your comments are usefull Happy

I understand you may not or don't understand my company's website (aka Studio.gd once again). Basically our customers are based in France. So no need to translate the website yet !

Anyway back on topic : next edition of Legenbon will come out on February 1st !
