HBO – Fire and Ice

We love this PR / Facebook live video stunt that Unit9 created to reveal the release date for the new season of Game of Thrones. The concept was really simple, but so much fun – using Facebook’s live video feature, users could activate flamethrowers that would melt the original block of ice, resulting in the date of the new season being revealed.

To date, this has been the biggest Facebook live event recorded, with over 600 000 votes, 3.5 million views and 19 000 shares. That’s the power of a good idea!

MailChimp – Whalesynth Website

MailChimp is a great tool for sending out some of the best newsletters the world has ever seen. (Yes, if you have subscribed to our newsletter, we use MailChimp!) And they’re always looking for interesting, innovative ways to market themselves. And with a broad scope like ‘the internet’ they are able to really push the boundaries. In fact, this comes from a larger campaign where MailChimp has been making fun of their own name – using a number of similar sounding things like: FailChips, KaleLimp, MaleCrimp and others. Yes – each one has its own website too!

Here, MailChimp created an interactive website that allows you to make whale noises. It’s that simple. And that much fun. No other reason than WhaleSynth sounds like MailChimp.

Oto Nove – Website

This simple website for a Swiss music festival in London is more than meets the eye. The festival itself is all about experimental music and when you move your cursor over the poster, you’ll notice that sounds emerge from the site itself. It doesn’t get more experimental than that!

Have a go below – and see how experimental you can get!

Patagonia – Bears Ears Website

This interactive site from Patagonia speaks to a core brand value – looking after the earth and not doing any harm. Using amazing photography, immersive 360 degree experiences and a great story, this project from Patagonia aims to help the Bears Ears region in Utah.

We do suggest you spend some time looking through the site and learning more.

A is for Albert

What a fun piece of work! This interactive tale of the life of Albert uses a really smart navigation idea, beautiful animations and great illustration. It uses the alphabet to tell the story, with each letter bringing to life the stories of parenting and child rearing.

So cute and so smart!

Have a look at the website here.

This was created in partnership between Studio Lovelock, the design agency and Matt Collins, the web developer.

Climatune Website

Spotify is a favourite of music streamers throughout the world and if they keep on creating such interesting projects, it’s no surprise to see them staying there for years to come.

With this interactive project they called ‘Climatune’, Spotify partnered with Accuweather to see what types of music people listen to based on the weather. This overlaying of listening data with weather is such a fun way to see how atmospheric conditions change what people choose to listen to. On the other hand – it’s also an incredibly fun way of showing you what Spotify is all about and how they think. Whether this is a retention strategy for current consumers or a way to get new people into the service – it’s most definitely working!
