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.
Interactive story about the last moments of life for the main protagonist. Incredible creativity, with home made props, custom software, and beautifully executed mix of video / 3D / type. Love the dynamic typeface and all the small animated details. Great sound design, interesting story, and light weight fun interactivity come together to provide this fascinating experience.
Site of famous opera singer Maria Callas, and a release of remastered classics. Featuring a sound reactive homescreen with 3D elements undulating and responding to soundtrack. Feeling like a form of sleek album boxset artwork, with a dive into the history of the star and photos from across the years. Nicely designed and crafted experience.
Beautiful experiential site which transports you to the hazy world of Hogwarts. Scroll through the 3D world and discover key moments from the Harry Potter world as you float around iconic locations. Beautifully executed with a nice balance of interactivity, playfulness, and content – it looks amazing with some of the best 3D implementation i’ve seen. Minimal UI and hierarchy allows you to really immersive yourself in the experience.
Fun branding site highlighting Air France’s seasonal playlist “a nod to our favourite Frenchies (Phoenix, Malik Djoudi or Postaal), as well as an opportunity to share our current top picks from around the world”. Love all the Material-esque transitions and animations that seamlessly move from section to section. Beautifully designed experience, love the sound reactive backdrops when you are playing a track. Fun way of extending the Air France brand into a music and digital design space.
Norman is a neat web tool to created animated 3D scenes viewable with a supported VR device. If you have the VR controllers you can create your own animated scenes – like Tiltbrush but all browser based – pretty amazing. Love the hand drawn and organic feel that really brings sketches to life.
A short trip, simple but beautiful premise. Explore an illustrated world through riding a tram, picking up furry passengers, and gliding through serene landscapes. Love the sound design and the absolute simplicity and elegance of the experience, truly wonderful.
Site promoting Fonterra and their global efforts to make a better world – through milk. Featuring a nice 3D globe with multiple layers – you can rotate and click on hotspots to reveal short stories in those locations. Nicely designed, crafted and polished experience.
Interactive music video for LCD Sound System’s latest tune. WebVR enabled, put it on your device and experience a FPS of a ball floating through a series of 3D scenes that react to the music. You can select other characters to see their perspective too, on desktop you can toggle between the views. Lot of fun, nice concept well executed.
Site of Amsterdam based creative studio Random. Lovely minimal and editorial style layout flowing into project case studies that sit above the site, with smart next project / project view interactions. Love all the small 3D details, particularly the interesting floating ball to 3D photosphere video of the studio. Nice modern agency site…
