Rollin’

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

 

Japanese site of label Rollin’, described as “Creative director Daisuke Iwashita presents his collection for the label and offers backstage video, accessories gallery, and stockist information”. Not 100% sure about the product but the site is pretty cool. Love the simple, minimal design and the transitions and animation – particularly on the section ‘collection’ – when pressed it scrolls at speed through all of the images. I also like the off-canvas style transition to reveal product info, again all wrapped up in a simple design with cool animation.

Site of Izaias Caualcanti & Anderson Barros – developers / designers from Brazil, this is their portfolio site. Nicely designed with big typography and mask reveal transitions. Little bit of confusing UE design, but it is fun to navigate and from a  layout perspective very cool.

Portfolio site of Tokyo based photographer Ittetsu Matsuoka. Very minimal interface, essentially explored by scrolling – love the homepage where you scroll and it loads in images from Flickr by the photographer – the interface stays in place. This is a recurring theme – scrolling isn’t what you might traditionally expect – here it explores the images acting as next / back type action. I love the use of white space and the transparency / overlapping – it also uses an interesting vertical dot system for navigating the projects once within ‘project’.

Nice site for Heine / Lenz / Zizka – a German branding studio. Presented in a large grid of projects which you can zoom in and out of to explore the range of work they have created. Clicking on projects allows you to drill down and look through the various designs, love the way when you move your mouse to one side the screen slightly moves to illustrate there is more to explore. Really nice layout and works nicely – fun to explore and good to look at!

Portfolio of Danish photo retouching studio ELI. One of my favourite features of the site is the way you navigate through the images in each section – scrolling within one of the strips or dragging the title bar. Love the transitions between sections with well considered animation and all wrapped up in a clean and minimal interface.

Digital Creativity Guidebook

 

A guidebook from Google to highlight the creative possibilities of the digital world with Google. Love the concept of a 3d pop up book, with various scenes showing possibilities such as street view, mobile, YouTube. The scenes are not only animated they are also interactive. There are various ‘pull’ tabs which trigger actions in the scene such as in Google maps, pull the tab and your view goes into street view. Also love how the movement of the pages is linked to your mouse which provides a very tactile interactive experience. All done in CSS / Javascript – really quite amazing.

Quite an accomplishment – Google Creative Lab have made a bit of a tech demo / visualisation of part of our galaxy for Chrome browsers. I love their disclaimer ‘Warning: Scientific accuracy is not guaranteed. Please do not use this visualization for interstellar navigation.’ all a bit of fun. Love the way you can zoom right in and even see other stars each with a bit of explanation and knowledge. Nice animation that show orbits of suns, planets etc – Gliese 570 is a great example – nice detail.

Pretty cool site of interactive HTML5 experiments. All set within a ultra minimal interface comprising of a draggable wheel, clicking on one of the items transitions to the experiment launching full screen. Love the typographic style and bold colours and minimal interace. This guy is seriously pushing the boundaries of what is possible right now in Canvas / CSS / Javascript – pretty impressive stuff. Great reference to demonstrate to people to the possibilities of how far we can go!
