Games We Played website
On this site, I love how each letter of the alphabet represents different games played in Singapore. If you move your mouse over each letter it begins to animate. Check out the slight noise affect applied to each animation. It reminds me of Terrestrial television back in the day!
Evo Energy website
This site is full of environmental statisitics presented in a cool and interactive way. Roll your mouse over elements and data is revealed to the viewer. It’s a great use of illustration and infograhics in a website.
These Are Things website
If you scroll up or down on this site our two designers (Jen and Omar) get placed in different environments related to the work they love doing. It’s a very nice idea and you can’t help but look at every part of the page. As well as having a smashing website they create some pretty nifty maps and infographics where they strive to simplify complex data.
Well Done Team GB website
Here’s a clever site that celebrates our athletes achievements at the 2012 games. I really like the characterisations of Mo Farah, Chris Hoy and other sporting personalities.
Impress a Penguin website
This site has a great bit of storytelling going on. Click though each slide and you’ll see what I mean. It’s a fantastic idea and really makes you want to engage with the site.
WWF Food Story website
Here’s another really good example of how interactive infograohics can be used in website design. By sliding the bar from left to right you can see the impact we are having on the environment when it comes to food production.
Adopt a Yeti website
Adopting a Yeti sounded pretty impressive! So when I had a look at the site and saw the fantastic illustration and colour scheme I knew I was onto a winner. Clicking the “Adopt your own Yeti” button takes you to a PDF download where you can cut and paste your own Yeti together. You’re then encouraged to take pictures and post them on the site for the rest of the Yeti adopting community to see!
Nobal Design blog
I love the work of Glen Noble and I was very pleased to discover his blog recently. I love the way he’s used cassette tapes, iPhones and photographs to signify the type of post he’s writing about. For instance, when he has a great piece of music that he wants to share it appears as a sound file that you can physically play in a cassette tape. It’s the same if he shares a video, it appears in the screen of an iPhone. Very clever!
