Lois Jeans – A/W 2010

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site promoting the Autumn / Winter 2010/11 collection of Lois Jeans. Interesting 3d interface, with 3d cubes constantly moving past to offer a nice sense of depth. With thumbnails of the latest clothes set into 3d triangles that constantly reorganise into new shapes – click on them to zoom in. Nice clean interface, well designed and works great.

Matko Stankovic

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Portfolio of Croatian photographer Matko Stankovic. Interesting navigation, presented with a contact strip of thumbnails which show the full image, with the backdrop a blurred version of the original – providing a nice palette of colours for the background. Nicely designed, laid out, and developed.

Airwalk

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Impressive new site of extreme sports brand Airwalk. Nicely designed with smooth transitions and good layout, importantly it is an example of what non-Flash sites can achieve – it may not be super amazing in terms of animation and transitions etc, however it is a good benchmark of what is possible!

The Thingdom

By | WEBSITES | No Comments


Beautifully made educational game for the Science Museum of London, to help teach people about genetics. You basically create a ‘thing’ and interactive with it by feeding, grooming, and mating with other ‘things’ to create new creatures – which inherit features from their parents. You have to complete challenges to unlock new features and levels. Amazing Flash work, incredibly detailed, great sound, and well polished, feels like a nintendo game – an awful lot of fun too!

SISAN

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Portfolio of Japanese agency SISAN. Interesting tag based navigation, that turns images into respective tags which link through their whole portfolio and what they did for each project. Love the way the background image turns into tags and the way they link through to each project. A very unique and creative way of exploring their work. Very cool!

I like the collection section where we can explore an endless canvas of photos from their collection, nice way of exploring whats on offer. Simple, clean, and effective – love the homepage and collection section.

Their case studies are arranged across the screen and each have tags with lines drawing from the tags to each project, all in all giving a detailed precise feel. The animations and transitions are smart & slick and the detail is very high, each project is tagged with the architects and loads of info. Really smart interface and design..

Original Fake

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Nice little site for Japanese label Original Fake. Very slick and fast animation bringing to life a minimal interface. You can view the collection or look at the newest additions to the set, view by grid or by full screen. The zoom function is well implemented, and the fast smooth transitions are really nice.

Using hand made clay models to form the basis of his work it is beautifully realised, from fantastic clay animation to his work realistically modelled onto blocks of clay. Amazing animations, design, and style all coming together to make a fun, beautiful website.

hellodave!

Site of Scandinavian agency hellodave! Set in a slick dark interface with 3d panels flying around moving with your cursor. By clicking on the thumbnails all of the panels reorganise to show a video player for that project. Really nice animations and transitions – love the camera movement with your mouse – it is very very smooth, and the shading and lighting is well executed. Very nice…

Dark Night Of The Soul

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Beautiful website promoting the release of an album collaboration of Dangermouse, Sparklehorse, and David Lynch. Set in a dark 3d world, where exploration is the key, a card pop up interface unfolds before you. By dragging parts of the cardboard world you reveal content, new imagery, video, and sounds from the album. I love the way you explore, clicking and dragging forwards zooms in/out, and dragging left / right pans around. The lighting also changes with the depth of your viewpoint, and it changes on the cardboard pieces that you drag around – really incredible attention to detail. The feeling of depth is incredible, giving a great sense of ambience and setting a fascinating scene. The setting is fantastic, it works like a charm, and it looks stunning, really refreshing work…

Track Carlos

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site promoting the new TV series about ‘Carlos’ a terrorist. Follow the trail of Carlos throughout the world and see where key events happened. Really slick site with incredible execution throughout. Love the 3d globe, clicking zooms in to various locations, similar to Google Earth, to give a montage of material about the event with press clippings, video clips, and so on. The montage itself is nicely laid out and you can pan your view around to reveal more items giving each location a back story. The level of detail is quite incredible, with seamless transitions from the 3d globe to the end scene, well designed, amazing animation and polish, really great work…
