Sweet and simple site for Mélanie F – a lookbook for their slippers range. Like the products themselves, the site is fun and colourful – love the elegant layout and smooth scrolling parallax decoration elements. Absolutely love the simple animated elements that really lift the experience – and make it feel that more dynamic.

Simply put an online magazine highlighting Danish architecture and design. Love the editorial style and design, slick and simple and with nice typography. Really fresh feeling layout accentuated with neat touches – such as the Danish logo animating when the content is loading. The site works really well across different devices and responds well to layout changes. A good example of a modern, well crafted editorial style site.
Surreal and beautiful – a ‘walking simulator’ – probably best described as an immersive interactive digital short film. Starting in the woods you guide your character along a path – you control your view from a 360 degree camera. You explore your environment, clicking brings your character to investigate a certain spot on the ground. It gets more surreal the further you explore, across various environments – a real feat in interactive storytelling. Love the way it totally immerses you into this strange world, drawing you in further and further. Beautifully executed and well crafted – nice to see more of this kind of thing that really highlights the potential of the interactive medium.
Simple site mapping the origins and usage of words across the world. Simple premise enter a word and the site will – using Google Translate – track the use of the word and translate in across the world. I like the way it tracks the words and actually speaks them as your travels all over the world. When it stops lines represent the origin of the word and clicking on them reveal how to speak the word in that country. Nice bit of fun and something a bit different.
New site for Blitz, digital agency in California. Nice and refreshing approach to an agency site – with a quasi-3d scrolling interface. Bold and bright, each section is full of information about the agency – like their approach to the project showcase – which feels like a slick presentation of videos and visuals. Lots of nice little details such as the menu to the left, really fresh agency site.

Lovely informative and entertaining site promoting the Gogoro electric scooter. Highlighting the key characteristics of the scooter in a bold and engaging way – showing how fast it accelerates, how it corners, the key components – all the interesting things. What I like is the way they make it interactive – lots of little playful interactions – such as turning on the lights / carousels revealing nice animations and so on. Love the bold and streamlined approach to the layout – large imagery and bold typography. It is also responsive and works well across various devices – really nice example of a product site.
Stunning site for Rockwell Group – cross-disciplinary architecture and design practice. Bold and beautiful design feels like reading a top end design magazine. Love the energy in the layouts and movement created by the offset grid and the various templates making up the pages. Projects are presented in a really dynamic way, with bold typography and large imagery and some intelligent sticky elements when scrolling to reveal details about each project. Not only does the site look great, but it also responsive and looks great also on mobile devices – one of the best responsive sites i’ve ever seen. This is what modern web design is all about, beautiful layouts, great functionality, simplicity and elegance.
