Beautiful experience “The Atlas of Moons” that offers an immersive and fascinating glimpse of the moons orbiting the planets in our solar system. The editorial experience parallels that of their magazines and reminds me of the fascinating book ‘Atlas of Remote Islands: Fifty Islands I Have Never Set Foot On and Never Will’. Love the use of 3D here to offer a draggable ‘map’ of each of the major moons, but to also highlight the orbit of the planets and moons. The level of detail is incredible – love the ability to map states in the US to see and relate the scale.
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.
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.
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.
Interactive documentary chronicling the testing of nuclear weapons. Fascinating combination of first person simulated VR / 3D videos, first hand testimonies, and history as told by those who were there. Beautifully crafted experience that really takes you there, and gives a multimedia overview of the history of these world ending weapons.
Interactive storybook featuring the adventures of Oat the Goat – tackling the topic of bullying. Beautifully crafted story and imagined 3D world – with simple tap based interactivity to make choices along the way. Love all the sound effects, music and dialogue – great attention to detail throughout. Nice way of broaching the topic of bullying through a wonderful and charming interactive story.
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.
Site documenting the earthquake damaged temples of Bagan in full 3D and LiDAR visualisations. Beautifully crafted experience taking you on a journey through these stunning temples. Love the interactive documentary approach, with voice over and storyline bringing out the history and acting like virtual tour guide.
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 musical festival Bad Bonn Kilbi in Switzerland. Love the Star Wars-esque page design, scroll down to see the site, tap on a artist and it plays a track – with a delightful rotating disc – some sections split the page and transition to a 2D view of the content. Really fun, playful experience – love the minimal design and awesome interactions.
Site of experimental arm of Weiden + Kennedy Amsterdam – Department of New Realities. Featuring an interesting 3D homepage where scrolling through presents visual ephemera in a monotone landscape. Some nice transitions in the projects section – fun and playful – great to see something a bit more out there.
