Funkhaus Design Laboratories is the Los Angeles-based creative boutique providing interactive solutions and brand identities for commercial production, television network, post-production, visual effects and editorial companies. David Funkhouser is a creative technologist, art director and designer. He has created or worked on over 200 websites and interactive projects and more than 70 visual identities.
Funkhaus Design Laboratories is motivated by one goal: to create timeless, solid, functional design for good people. FDL is built on the fundamental concept of form over function; a tenet left gasping for air by the onslaught of contemporary media. The days of static websites are long gone. They are TVs without remotes. They are devoid of interaction.
We start with two basic questions: How do you interact with it? How do other people interact with it? We believe that the answer to both questions should be simply, intuitively, and immediately.
We take a practical, low-cost, high-value approach to problems. Whether your project is digital or analog, we take the best open source technologies and combine them with our design ethos to achieve sustainable solutions. We reject over designing, over pricing, or drawing out the project. We are a boutique with over 10 years experience. We have over 200 websites and more than 50 visual identities under our belt. We are Funkhaus Design Laboratories.
