Kaplan (Pieter Nyssen) is a graphic design studio in Antwerp. In 2017, I designed and developed his portfolio website. There's a relation in terms of style with the projects of Kaplan, but the website is slightly more reductionistic, allowing room for experimental interactive elements without getting too distracted from the works in the portfolio. The tension between the clean approach, banal interactions and easter eggs are especially interesting.
