Off The Grid – Honda

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site for Honda supporting launch of the new Civic. A play on Google’s street view, except for exploring the streets you explore ‘off the grid’ locations – such as canyons, underwater art galleries, and so on. All filmed from a 360 degree camera system walking – you can click and drag to change your view as the scene unfolds – very cool.  The scenes are magical and sound, music, and voiceover all adds to the ambience, really nice.

Dean West

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Portfolio for photographer Dean West with a slick interface. Love the scrolling through the thumbnails, a rich tapestry of photographs scrolling at different speeds gives a great feeling of depth and movement. A really nice portfolio site, well made and easy to use, slick, and fantastic transitions.

Chinese Soul

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Beautiful site combining drawn scenes and jazz, the music animating the drawing scenes of China – promoting a jazz album ‘Chinese Soul’. The lines vibrate with the music in turn drawing the lines with the scene panning as the lines are drawn. I love the thought that music can draw a scene in your mind and give a mood, a feeling – very simple and beautifully made. Fantastic.

Internavi Dots – Honda

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site for Honda Japan featuring info graphics and data about road journeys in Japan. These are all visualised using coloured dots and smoothly animated and shown like a slideshow. Information such as current traffic and weather conditions is shown all in an informative and interesting way. Love the way the dots all move around to form the visuals. Minimal layout and look and feel but the animations and slideshow are really nice, great way of showing information in an dynamic and visually interesting way.

JUK3D – Nissan

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

A simple micro site giving people the chance to explore the new Nissan JUKE. Using the latest Flash 11 hardware accelerated 3D effects, you are presented with a detailed 3d model of the car – placed in a neutral setting you can walk around the car, change colour, get in and out of the car – all from first person perspective. Very simple and fun, I love the way the colour of the car changes and the simplicity of interaction with the car and the environment – dragging the doors open and sitting inside the car – all incredibly immersive. Very well executed, the 3d is fast and smooth and the site is polished – very very cool.

Check-in Chance – Uniqlo

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Constantly amazed by the quality and innovation of Uniqlo micro sites. This one for Japan involves a cute 3d scene – your mouse controlling the rotation of the scene. Animated to the music and the scene is brought to life, objects fall using parachutes to the ground and a whole pile of things litter the floor. You scroll through the site as you do the angle of the 3d view changes and it highlights the differing depths of the scene. Lovely parallax effect and real feel of depth and cool animation – fantastic, not sure what the site is all about but the execution is amazing.

Sidsel Marie Bøg

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Beautiful site for the Danish Hair & Makeup artist Sidsel Marie Bøg. Featuring a fresh and crisp layout and navigation I haven’t seen before. Nice slideshow fullscreen imagery fills the background, love the rollovers on the sections, where images appear for that section. The section where you view the images utilises a really nice scrolling system. Overall a stunning site that really shows how to showcase a great creative portfolio of imagery. Fantastic…

The Heart Beetle – Volkswagen

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Really nice and fun site for Volkswagen’s beetle in Japan. Simple premise – people customising the colour and pattern of the car – all shown in a dynamic and scrolling slideshow manner. You can create your own of course, this is also nicely done and very simple. Really smooth and fast animations and transitions, nicely made and typically Japanese styling bit of an old school concept though but fun nonetheless.

Shoes for Life – Aldo

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Fun upbeat site promoting Aldo’s A/W 2011 range of footwear. Simple promotion – play 3 short games – i.e. pick a lucky shoe, and if you win all 3 you get a discount and might win ‘shoes for life’. Really simple site, but a lot of fun – brought to life by sound, music, and animation. Nicely put together and designed with a real emphasis on an upbeat and fun look and feel.

Warsaw Autumn

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site for the 54th International Festival of Contemporary Music held in Warsaw. Love the way you can make your own composition from the various sounds of the homepage, when it plays shapes and colours appear around the centre responding to the sound waves made – very cool. Nicely minimal lay out and look and feel, with a fun interface, nice.

Dhanja – Nespresso

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Beautiful site promoting Nespresso’s new Dhjana coffee blend from sustainable sources. You discover the sources of the coffee panning around the scene. Full of stunning animations and smooth transitions, the site is brought to life. It looks fantastic, full of polish and well designed, amount of detail is incredible from the smallest of animations to buttons and so on. There is also a great soundtrack – it is full of sound – which really ties it all together. Really beautiful…

Illusion – O’Neill

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site promoting O’Neill’s Women’s range for a/w 2011. Centred around the concept of ‘illusion’, before seeing the clothing small optical illusions are shown – they didn’t really work for me but hey it’s a fun idea. Nice transitons and look and feel, nice play on the scrolling theme – overall pretty slick and fun to use.

Borgia

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site promoting the new TV show “Borgia” by Canal+ in France. Incredibly well produced and created immersive site, one of the main features an interactive trailer allowing you to pan around the video 360 degrees and watch the scene almost like a video game. I love the way this 360 video works, so you can pan around and get a real feel for the scene they have created. This is all wrapped up in a nice interface, the other sections such as photos all look great and work. Really nice detailed and well crafted site.

Gas Jeans – A/W 2011

By | WEBSITES | No Comments

Site of Gas Jeans latest collection Autumn / Winter 2011. Homepage is a bit of a rip off of yugop’s wonderwall – but the rest is pretty nice. Very simple with nice transitions and burn effects, really like the simplicity of each outfit, with the cool parallax effect on the details just adds some nice movement and interactivity.
