Site for Google’s Cultural Institute. Teaming up with some of the worlds most iconic venues and performances experience these moments from the stage in 360 video. Lovely type treatment and nice bold imagery, love the 360 video which really dives you into the experience. One of the things I love about it is how nicely it works on mobile, with an option to use your gyro or swipe to scan around the environment. Nice work.

Cool site for Message Design Center agency based in Japan. Love the 3D interactive type on the homepage, which transitions into the hero image for that project when tapped. Also love the company page where 3D characters float across the screen changing into photos – very cool. Nice, clean and simple portfolio site.
Site promoting the new film Our Brand is Crisis. Beautifully designed, with a cool navigation mechanic – sliding panels bring in more info when needed. Love the full screen video and bold type driven layout. Cool integration of a Tumblr blog too – fun and great looking site.
Site for San Francisco International Book Club, who in their own words “writes about and distributes books related to art, design, architecture, crafts, photography and fashion as well as everyday objects.” Nice horizontal infinite scroll experience that shows the range of products. Click on one to go into more detail – love the way you see the range of images – dependent on horizontal cursor position. Lovely big type and fresh colours, with fun and fresh look and feel with an injection of personality.
See the Greenpeace fleet and how they have tried to raise awareness for the ocean environment and the creatures affected by humans. Rich immersive audio and visual experience highlighting the vessels Greenpeace uses and has used over the past 40 years. Love the look and feel for the site, from the rotating reel acting as the menu to the technique used to show inside the ships – the site is full of delightful details. It works really nicely on mobile too, from the menu to the map view – all works and looks great.
The digital accompaniment of a new book documenting various animals love rituals. Love the minimal pared down approach which highlights various movements and behaviors the animals have – shown simply through moving shapes. Click on the animation and a page split appears and more information is shown. Nice transitions and love the unifying way of displaying the simple animations to highlight the various weird and wonderful ‘acts of love’.
Beautiful interactive music experience from artist Kamra. Watch as your face gets detected and peel off to become a 3D animated object navigating a landscape of sounds and surrealism. Beautifully executed with great dynamic 3D scenes, animation and visual storytelling. Fantastic way of pairing music with a dynamic, personalized interactive experience.
Fantastic wrap up of events, moments, and stats for publisher Conde Nast. Featuring bold typographic approach with large imagery and horizontal scrolling mechanic that gives the timeline feel.

It looks lovely with an offset grid and bold type and large imagery, fantastic concept for end of year summary.
Site for Swedish agency Bonnemarque.Beautiful dark look and feel, love the seamless transitions from the homepage to the project details – nicely done with inline video. The project pages are full of detail and outline their approach and the work itself, love the sticky nav on the left ‘BEGIN’ which expands and contracts as you scroll. Menu transition is lovely and slick, lots of cool animations and nice transitions wrapped up in a beautiful responsive design.
Lovely site for Tennent Brown architecture in New Zealand. Magazine style layout, with large imagery and love the 3D typography that slides up and down a stairway as you scroll. Love the grading on the images and the designs of the various layouts – feels like a well polished design magazine.
Fantastic musical interactive experience for Because celebrating 10 years and 20 classic artworks. Hold down the spacebar to randomly select an artist and play with the artwork – ranging from dragging trees, lighting up a city, playing with gravity, etc etc. Each one is very cool and triggers the playback of the track – with animations, video and interactivity. Love this kind of thing – this is what the medium is all about, creating compelling interactive experiences that can only be done with the interactive medium. Beautifully executed with slick animations, fantastic transitions, pulled together with elegant UI and a nice bit of storytelling.
