Nice site promoting Google Chrome – a tie-in with Lego, a large Google map of Australia dotted with grids made up of lego bricks. As you zoom into the map you end up in a 3d view of places where people have created their own blocks and shapes which you can view from various angles. A bit of fun, clean integration and nice 3d effects.

Lovely site from Japanese designer Yasuda Takahiro. Very minimal interace nicely spiced up with transitions and smart features. Love it the small details in this site, when you are scrolling down the info panel scrolls with you with the overlay tracking exactly the scroll bar position – it changes colour when you scroll to another section – nice small details. Really nice work too – very cool.
Portfolio of Polish agency K2. Really slick site highlight their best work, with plenty of nice transitions and effects. Like the simplicity of layout and large imagery, the open / close transitions on the work section are great, and it all feels well polished. And all in a non-Flash site…
Healing Histories is an interactive documentary highlighting New Orleans recovery from the hurricane Katrina that destroyed much of the area. Love the simple interace with rich assets and imagery, the transitions and animations are very much ‘app’ esque with smooth movement and useful metaphors. Really nice site looks like it was designed for ‘touch first’.

Site promoting the film ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’, showing short clips of viewpoints from a character from the film and streaming latest tweets about the film. Beautifully simple, lovely full screen video and transitions, fun innovative menu a more exploratory site experience – really well crafted filmic site.
