Site of Matsu a cut vegetable factory in Kanazawa, Japan!
Best described by the creators, “When thinking about “What is human value?” From now on, the value of “manual work” and “skills using the human body” and “human imagination” that can change the cut to the person who eats will increase I thought. Therefore, it is possible to experience the immersive feeling when cutting vegetables on a website. Tell the fun and value of cut vegetables.”
Love the scrolling progression through the stop motion style animation.
Site of creative management Atomo, with a focus on the fashion industry. Love the amorphous rolling homepage with gliding and fading photography, this transitions down into a grid of featured projects and the people they represent. Beautifully crafted.
Site of Lundqvist & Dallyn, Uk based design studio with a focus on Brand Identity and Art Direction. Minimal and elegant, leading with large imagery and plenty of white space, subtle transitions and colour fades bring a subtle sense of dynamism.
Playful celebration site of US agency Zero. Love the bold type set against inverted white on black styling, with parallax effect on the photography and type. Love the fun cursor replacement to explore the imagery. Lots of personality weaved into a fresh modern experience with an amazing feel of depth.
Interactive documentary telling the story of an abducted school girl and the trackers that searched for her. Beautifully crafted site that allows you to explore the scenes to uncover the story through the eyes of the trackers. Mix of video, 3D, typography, audio narrative and storytelling – great example of interactive storytelling.
Site of painter Florian Monfrini – elegant and stylistic expression of the paintings. Love the large bold type and the subtle scrolling effect inside the imagery which adds a wonderful dimension of depth. Minimal but elegant and well crafted.
Beautiful 3D comic book celebrating the beginning of 2019. Told through the eyes of a nomadic tribe leaving their island, small delightful interactive 3D scenes encourage interactivity. Detailed and well crafted, love all the delightful interactive vignettes.
Site of Kwok, US based designer, and a personal portfolio. Love the personality dotted all around this site, from the playful dot to dot represenation of distance from my ip to where he’s based, through to a guestbook where visitors leave their messages, it’s like going back to the fun websites of yesteryear. Lovely design and nice mix of type and languages, particularly like the transition from project thumbs to the detail page. Super cool and super fresh.
Immersive cinematic interactive 3D music video! From 21 Pilots in collaboration with Spotify, beautifully crafted site taking you through the key track. Love the flow from the city, to wind swept panoramas, layers of meaning added as you explore the scenes. Love this kind of exploratory creative work.
Gorgeous site refresh from French agency Reso Zero. Love the feeling of depth achieved through the scrolling parallax effect, and the seamless transitions to the project pages – with the hero image gliding across the screen and colour fades – this site is a joy to explore. Beautiful art direction throughout and incredibly well crafted.
A collaborative interactive story writing experience. “BOOOK.LAND is a space for collaborative storytelling, bringing the online world together to write a novel. The digital platform allows participants to take part in a live novel anywhere, anytime. By continuing the story where it was left off and illustrating it as it’s being written, participants are able to collaborate with the rest of the world. The final novels are unconventional, unexpected pieces born from a clash of digital and print worlds.” Incredible idea, nicely crafted and inspirational for the digital medium.
Interactive 3D documentary of the making of this new album from T.I. Love this super creative approach to story telling, with an interactive 3D world you explore and hear descriptions of stages in life. Beautifully crafted and brilliantly executed piece of modern story telling.
