Winner of the Flashforward2007 Boston Film Festival in the Typography category – again it’s been around for a while. But it is really well executed, not just down to the typography – but also in terms of navigation and style. Using 3D esque parallax navigation it is a joy to use and at times jaw dropping. It remains simple and easy to use but also the animation and transitions are amazing.

Anteprima

Anteprima’s website for the autumn/winter range 2007. There are several nice touches – particularly the parallax style navigation – it just feels very fluid and intuitive.

Made by the famous Japanese agency FICC inc.

Very nice and appropriate use of Papervision 3D! A kind of parallax environment which is cool to use. The rest of the site is pretty nice too, good use of Flash for a agency portfolio website…

Seibu – Autumn Collection

Seibu - Autumn Collection

Another slick Japanese website, quite confusing to navigate (I guess as I can’t read Japanese!) – however the way images are presented is really nice. Could do with a bit of image smoothing though! I like the way they have made it quick to load by using small thumbnails – utilising it in the gallery view to great effect. Looking pretty stylish when you are cycling through the collection, with the next/previous images all pixellated.

Honda – Inside Elysion

Honda - Elysion

Slick website promoting Honda’s new car ‘Elysion’ in Japan. Showing a series of photos taken every hour for 24 hours a day, all week, from the viewpoint of owning the car. It’s strength is the way it shows the photos –┬áit is fun to navigate and use. The images zoom up to the full screen size, and I like the way they have restricted the user’s control of the size of the page, so they can’t resize the page once opened in fullscreen – always a bane for Flash designers!

Created by Simon Inc in Japan, make sure you view the ‘full screen’ mode.
