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.
Site of some of Bvlgari’s iconic jewelry pieces that adorned famous actresses, models, and fashionistas. Beautifully crafted site, with large colourful photography and bold typography. Lots of polished transitions and animations elevate the experience.
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.
Site showcasing several female actresses that reveal hidden depths and go beyond what they are often known for. Beautifully designed, lots of imaginative and bold use of type, juxtaposed with all the fluid and dynamic visual flourishes. Love the speeches inside of the profiles that animate the text as spoken, lots of nice attention to detail such as the end of the profiles, menus and so on.
Site of Brontide a bioengineering company. Lovely horizontal scrolling home screen that animates on scroll – fluid and dynamically introducing what Brontide is all about. The corresponding pages are vertically parallax scrolling again with the same attention to detail for the home. Beautifully designed and executed site.
Site of creative agency based in Paris. Love the homepage with a slideshow-esque functionality, where the label is filled by time and jumps to the next project. Wonderful mix of photography and video, the project pages are sublime with transitions from full screen video to colour bg with imagery and type on multiple z-depths. Nice attention to detail – really dig the jumping ball to show where you are – injects some personality and playfulness – Love this site!

Site of Concrete Rep a UK based rep agency for artists working in the fashion, editorial, and advertising industries. Love the homescreen with the segmentation of the various artists scrolling down the page with locked elements such as title creates a wonderful sense of movement. Also love all the subtle patterns and interactions such as scrolling to the end of the project takes you back to the previous page. It looks beautiful too, elegant and clean, with dynamic colour palette and great use of typography.
Site of Montreal based digital agency Phoenix. Love the homepage, with scrolling thumbnails and masked title transitions – when tapped transition nicely into the full project pages. Dynamic and lively project pages with lovely animated sections to bring the work to life, some with parallax details, beautifully designed and considered. Great example of a modern and lively agency folio.
Site of Russian digital design shop Vide Infra. Nice folio of work in a slick and modern experience, love the works page with the masking scroll transitions. Nice seamless transitions into the project pages, each of which is lively and full of energy.
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.
Site of Henning Larsen architects extraordinaire. Lovely site, homepage is a feed of latest projects, news and insights. Project detail pages are well designed, with a useful side nav, love the end of the page with the shelf revealing more information. Lots of details that improves the overall experience – from the menu to the clean and minimal design.
Site of French based couture designer Olivier Lapidus. Nice fresh take on the fashion range site, explore the line up, and see the detail for each piece. Detail view is fantastic, scroll down and the model to the left rotates, with video and detail scrolling up to add depth. Love the “you might like” section and quick links to explore similar dresses. Nicely crafted and executed full of slick transitions and animation.
Site for book – Zero Days Off – best explained by the author “it is a true reflection of the life journey that I did not choose to take, but one that I now follow every day. Although it is a story about my own fight, with what I can only describe as a rare undiagnosed digestive illness causing me continuous physical pain, it is also a story about progress and purpose.” A little contrived – but the site is lovely. Love the animated homescreen with elements responding to the scroll position. Lots of nice details, transitions, and animations.
