Interactive documentary about ethics in design. “Every day we use objects, services and applications designed by all kinds of designers. But does this mean that everything a designer conceives is done in our interest? Some interfaces are designed to get all of our attention and some products are designed to die prematurely.” This documentary aims to cover some of the interesting topics in design in a thoughtful and innovative way. Love the use of the pane mechanic to dynamically resize the windows.
Site of photographer Sara Mandi and her collection of fashion and luxury photography. Lovely homepage showing a large type driven menu which on rollover reveal thumbnails from the project below, love that the horizontal axis shows other imagery. Nice seamless transitions to the project detail pages, clean aesthetic and nice typography throughout site.
Site of Studio Björk a digital design & development studio in Stockholm. Bold black and white minimal design with horizontal folio scrolling. Love the side scrolling that allows you to open up projects and then browse additional projects on either side, nice seamless transitions to the project details. Cool, modern agency site.
Site of Logram branding and creative agency based in Japan. Looking like a mash up of an early 2000s graphic design experiment and Photoshop layer this site is a medly of type, colours, and gradients. Lovely interactions, where sections of the site are in in separate spaces with sections of colour transitioning to the new pages. Love the dynamic colour palette too, along with the moving layers it feels as though the site is never the same from one moment to another. Very refreshing, lively and bold agency site.
Fun multi-player drawing game, where quick doodles are turned into 3D objects placed into a co-created 3D world. Created for Google’s i/o 2018 in Mountain View as the fun follow up to the Paper planes from the previous i/o. First of all the doodle recognition to a range of objects is great, and love the lively and fresh transformation to the 3D shape. Once created your doodle goes into the co-created world for you to explore in a rich 3D world.
Interactive and annotated discography of Prince from the Prince Estate. Showing all the major releases, collaborations, recordings from Prince, each with an annotated history. Really simple and minimal layout that allows you to focus on the music and info – love all the small details such as the cursor replacement, minimal menu thats simply a purple dot that is attracted to cursor movement. Love the large type driven layouts and the personality dotted throughout.
Site of Montreal based luxury luggage brand who creates custom made bags. Full of energy and classyness, lovely seamless transitions between the sections of the site, this site oozes style. Love all the dynamic elements that never feels overwhelming, and lots of elegant touches to elevate the design.

Love the interactive documentary approach, with voice over and storyline bringing out the history and acting like virtual tour guide.
Site of freelance fashion stylist Katie Shillingford based in London. Love the homepage with panels of swipe-able photography from projects highlighted in the UI on scroll. Nice colour transition between the project sections, and the subtle movement of the carousels. Minimal design and beautiful photography make for a modern and stylish site.
Site featuring an infamous stretch of road called Roxham, home to a border crossing into Canada. Photographer Michel Huneault captured various stories of the people looking for asylum crossing from the US, all presented in web VR and 3D. Really interesting approach to story telling, mixing audio, interviews, photography and 3D space.
Site of Montreal based film production agency Film Truck. Bold type driven design, with the videos sitting as the background elements. Nice touches throughout, such as the colour transitions also love the seamless transitions between the various sections of the site, nicely animated and implemented with a modern + fresh design.
