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.

Nice attention to detail – really dig the jumping ball to show where you are – injects some personality and playfulness – Love this site!
