Lovely site for speciality book store in Amsterdam – described as “A candy store for book aficionados”. Bold type, and large imagery funnel the viewer down the page with a mixture of editorial, curated, and book suggestions. Some really nice features here with smooth transitions and a great attention to detail. Love the preloader and new page slide in representing a new page – nice link back to the printed medium. On top of this it looks lovely, well designed and interesting layouts that really life the experience.
Beautiful experience and collaboration with Google Play Music and Hilltop Hoods. Through The Dark was written by Dan Smith for his son Liam, who was diagnosed with leukaemia at eight years old. The site takes you through an interactive 3D music video – using the scroll mechanic to change the position of your view. On mobile your accelerometer performs same task. Your view transitions between the light and the dark of the world, each view with subtly different perspectives of the same scene, light representing hope and the dark, fear. Love the simple mechanic and the stunning use of 3D to draw you in. Beautiful idea brought to life in a fantastic way.
Ultra minimal and stylish site for fashion photography stylist Lynn Schmidt. Love the elegant simplicity and offset grid – so simple – tap on the image to cycle through images for that project. Simple slide out menu, easy to use, and works great on mobile too.

Another lovely B&O site, this time promoting their new wireless in ear headphones. Love the small interactive moments that tell the story and pull out the key features in a playful way. Nice design and interesting photography and location choice too – interesting moments of video scrubbing on scroll. Nice modern one-pager that pulls out all the details that users will find interesting wrapped in a nice to explore experience.
Site showcasing the collaboration of FILA and Marion Bartoli. A limited edition collection is shown through a series of colourful transitions and interactivity that showcase the range. Nice touches include the thumbnails for colourways that cycle over time, love the art direction and colour. Fun playful way to inject a lot of personality into the experience.
Site for UK based digital agency Cuberto. Full of slick transitions and nice interaction details that reveals a nice body of work spanning mobile web and native apps. Like the video headers that transition seamlessly into the project case studies. It looks great, with well considered typography and nice layout to create a fresh and modern agency folio.
Lovely refresh of global agency Stinkdigital’s website. Clean and fresh and fast, the site shows a great folio of work. Love the transitions from page to page and pleasing gradients that accompany them, nice detail on the project pages with a mix of animated gifs, video content, and imagery. Really like the about page, and love the way they represented the different offices timezones is a smart and playful way.
Site for digital first agency Locomotive based in Canada. Full of transitions and animations, I love the diversity of the layouts for the project pages. Each project has its own colour palette which transitions when you visit other sections. I love the energy in each of the sections, from the fun ‘play’ section of the site to the detail when you reach the end of a case study – love the colour fade. Full of detail and beautifully designed, great example of a modern agency site.
Site for digital agency and research group Consortia. Lovely scrolling intro that pulls apart the logo and dives you into their lovely folio of work. Simple interactivity that splits the page to reveal the project detail in-situ. The component parts of the logo follow you down the page and add a nice element of depth.

Site for swimwear brand Solid & Striped. Lots of whitespace and nice photography, creates a nice sense of calm and sophistication. Several nice thoughtful features such as the floating header and footer area, love the diving board feature that lets you just explore the lookbook of styles.
Site of LA based digital agency HAUS. Nice animated intros to each project, with nice level of detail for each of the project pages. Lots of nice details that elevate – such as the contact page where you can play a game on the map, the menu page with awesome bg animations. All in all a well designed and executed modern agency site with lots of personality.
Site for US based digital and video production agency Nurture Digital. Love the masked showreel in the background as you scroll through the background changes with colour and animation – highlighting that project. It is beautifully designed, nice bold typography and full of great detail and animations – love the way the transitions on the homepage to see individual projects. The project view looks great, love the intro panel which transitions to full screen video then detailed panel down the side appears as you scroll. One of the nicest agency folio sites i’ve seen for a while.
