Oat the Goat – Interactive Story

Wow! We love this work by Assembly and FCB New Zealand for the New Zealand Ministry of Education. It tells the story of Oat the Goat and his travels, teaching young children to understand how their actions can affect the people around them.

With a beautiful animation style, immersive sound design and a great story – this is truly digital work of the highest order. We do suggest you spend some time checking out the site and seeing just how far digital work can be taken.

You can read Oat the Goat’s story here (in English or in Maori!).

Painted Earth

We love this project!

Moniker is a digital design studio in the Netherlands and for one of their recent projects they created ‘Painted Earth’. This allows people to paint using the earth as a canvas. By logging into their phone and walking around, their movement becomes brush strokes – walk faster and the paint makes dots, stand in one space and it pools and drips. But it doesn’t end there – up to 200 people can be in one place and ‘paint’ at the same time.

Amazing!

Yahoo! Japan – The History of the Internet

What an undertaking! This site by Yahoo! Japan tells the entire history of the Internet, using a scrollable 3D modelled tower – with interactive information at each step of the way. We’ve included a few screenshots here for you to understand the navigation of the site and how it works, but it really has to be seen to be believed!

Maison Riviera – Website

What a beautiful way to bring dairy and yoghurt products to life online! This site for Maison Riviera is a beautifully art-directed, cleverly designed example of how designing for web can start to feel more tactile. Such great work from Montreal-based interactive agency Deux Huit Huit.

With loads of smart scrolling effects and beautiful photography, this website is a shining example of how you can bring FMCG products to life in a rich, exciting way for consumers. We love it!

Lene van Heerden – Faceboard Work

One of our third year Multimedia students, Lene van Heerden, recently completed this animation for a private brief for Faceboard, an e-learning platform with a cool way of interacting with people through gamification and social learning.

Such incredible work, well done Lene!

 

Patagonia – The Blue Heart of Europe

Patagonia is a brand known for taking responsibility. They’ve made doing good and giving back a part of the brand from the very beginning. Here, we’re sharing one of their latest projects: The Blue Heart of Europe – a website which raises awareness about Europe’s threatened rivers and gives people something to rally behind and support. We love the work done by Upperquad on this!

Not only is this a great site to interact with and use, it’s a really interesting way that Patagonia is both doing good and representing itself as a brand. On every page, you see the Patagonia logo, but instead of throwing it in your face or trying to shove product down your threat, it doesn’t try too hard. And this is what makes Patagonia such a beloved brand throughout the world.

Good work for a good cause – what could be better?

Niika – Website

Niika is a digital design and branding studio from Australia with a website that shows off their talents to great effect! From great web design through to 3D objects and some really fun scrolling techniques – this site has it all.

It’s always so much fun watching people at the peak of their powers flex their creative muscles and this site really is no exception. Take a look at the site right over here.
