Site for artist Habid Fadel. Beautifully crafted and slick experience to experience the melody of colours and expression that is the artist’s work. Love the homepage and the transitions to the individual artworks, and the seamless transition to a zoomed in image. Full of little animation notes and expressions that lift the whole experience.

Really cool site – a collaboration between french agency Ultranoir and illustrator and artist McBess. A 3d gramophone allows you to grab the needle and crank up the motor – and dive into the music in a dark 3d world. Love all the 3d interactions, such as rotating your view, placing the needle on the record, opening the side panel and playing a piano along to the music. And the sound design is fantastic – rotate your view away from the speaker on the gramophone and the music sounds muffled. It looks amazing too, the stark black world sprinkled with white – really great work.
Site for French TV Channel ‘France 2’ – and their programmes about France in WW1. Set like an encyclopedia of important events centred around a map (which like the old school Flash days curls up when you visit events). A very rich interactive site full of videos, images, and transitions – which feels like an old school rich Flash site – when in fact it isn’t – great to see sites like this which aren’t a standard parallax site.
Nice site for Diesel and their ‘5 Pockets’ jean collection for men. Browse the type of jeans from textured, light, and blue – bringing you the range through a vertical scroll layout. Looking at the detail reveals a quasi-3d effect, with the model static but small graphic elements re-acting to your mouse position. Like the transitions from overview to detail view and the interesting layout and cool effects.
