Zero is Two

By | @Zerostudiosnyc | No Comments



Playful celebration site of US agency Zero. Love the bold type set against inverted white on black styling, with parallax effect on the photography and type. Love the fun cursor replacement to explore the imagery. Lots of personality weaved into a fresh modern experience with an amazing feel of depth.

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.

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.

World Draw

By | @active_theory | No Comments



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.

Prince Estate

By | @base_design | No Comments



Interactive and annotated discography of Prince from the Prince Estate. Showing all the major releases, collaborations, recordings from Prince, each with an annotated history. Really simple and minimal layout that allows you to focus on the music and info – love all the small details such as the cursor replacement, minimal menu thats simply a purple dot that is attracted to cursor movement. Love the large type driven layouts and the personality dotted throughout.
