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.

This website has been around for a while – but recently came up as a runner up of the Flashforward2007 Boston Film Festival in the Typography category. I love it, it’s extremely stylish and was one of the few sites that did full screen Flash video. The transitions and attention to detail is great, it also looks amazing…

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.
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 – it 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!
