Site promoting Geox’s Amphibiox waterproof shoes – all through a first person tour of downtown Cherrapunjee one of the world’s rainiest places. You can control the tour through your mouse wheel to speed up/slow down the pace, clicking on one of the highlighted people will show you the show they wear – all through a really cool mouse as the camera style position. Really nice transitions between the sections and cool videos showing the various tests the shoes are put through.

Nice site of RVLT clothing. Really nice design brought to life by cool animation and transitions. Love the homepage – dragging will slide off the components and re-arrange the layout when they re-appear, clicking on a section or item brings it in – love the way the text overlaps the image and the info overlay. Nice grid layout – really simple, fresh and clean.
Another great Russian Lexus microsite. Featuring the ever popular parallax vertical scroll layout – really like the gaps between the sections and the interactivity in some of the sections – such as changing the wheel or the car moving with your mouse cursor position – lots of little elements of delight. The sliding menu on the right panel is intuitive and works well – although always scrolling downwards can be a bit disorientating. Design is great, slick, elegant and simple makes the car visuals pop out, really nice well considered site with lots of cool interactivity.

Site of musical outfit Dubfire. Featuring an explorable semi-3d interface with cubes revealing news items, tour details and so on. Loads of cool interface design, animations and transitions bring the whole minimal design to life – especially the feeling of depth, amplified when you use flat colours. Really well crafted site, looks modern and clean – animations super slick tie it all together. Really nice…
Slick and elegant portfolio of Christian Mezöfi art director and designer. Really minimal layout highlighting visually the range of projects he has worked on. Love the way when changing between projects the layout slides down to visually and mentally see the transition to a new section – so essentially you can view the whole portfolio effortlessly – nice touch. Some really great work in there too…
Promoting the launch of a range of Denon headphones this campaign site visualises how it might feel in an interesting way. Using the frequency analyser to map the range and volume of frequencies animating to music – all applied to faces wearing the headphones. Love the approach and the detailed view of the headphones, again the 3d parallax comes into effect.
Canal+ site promoting new series Les Revenants – again with the 360 drag to view mechanism. What I really like here is the feeling of depth and quality of the scenes, it really feels very immersive. You explore various locations and meet some of the characters from the series – the way they have placed video inside the scene is fantastic – with characters closer to you appearing closer with a kind of parallax effect. Really well crafted and fun to explore…
Fantastic documentary site about the Cuban Missile Crisis. Highlighting the context for what happened, using videos and images – and interesting interviews – even with a section for ‘what if?’ an alternative ending for what might have happened. Lots of really nice user design, transitions and animations – the line is really getting blurred now between what you can achieve with the latest CSS and HTML when compared with Flash. Love the minimal design and smooth animations and interactivity. Also happens to be a fascinating subject – brought to life in a fun and interesting way.
