Site showcasing several female actresses that reveal hidden depths and go beyond what they are often known for.

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 featuring an infamous stretch of road called Roxham, home to a border crossing into Canada.

Long form interactive editorial piece from the Highline of Huffington post. A 8-month long reporting piece diving into the complexities millennials face today.

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.
