The logo is placed in a light blur that smoothly transitions from letter to letter. When the blur appears, we perceive the object as a memory to which Brandon's works refer. Although a memory is something personal, over time it acquires an indistinct contour and becomes open to another viewer. This openness is expressed in the spacing between the letters, as if inviting us into Brandon Mercer's world.

The website's identity often features a dreamy effect achieved through a dark background and blurring on hover. Custom navigation elements help the user focus on the works of Brandon by fixing the cursor's focus. The site's loader, stylized as a VHS interface, immediately sets the user's mood.
