Bear Grylls – Website

Who doesn’t love an adventure? And who doesn’t love Bear Grylls, perhaps one of the most well-known adventurers in our modern times? He’s been all over the world showing us how to survive through a number of methods perhaps most of us would baulk at – sleeping inside animal carcasses for warmth, is just one example.

So, outside of us all having to rough it and filter water through our own socks, the next best thing we can do is learn about Bear Grylls through a website – from the comfort of our own computer chairs! That’s where this website comes in.

Designed by Outpost, this site makes use of a really smart timeline that allows you to learn more about Grylls’ life, along with some great design, which looks and feels like top-class editorial design. What a great way to deliver information in bitesize chunks so that the user doesn’t feel overwhelmed.

You can check out the site here. Have fun!

Carlsberg Beer – It All Comes From Beer

To celebrate 170 years of making beer, Carlsberg in Denmark created this site with the help of Stupid Studios, which gives you a drone’s eye view of the Carlsberg brewery as well as famous sites in Copenhagen.

This is such an interesting, entertaining way to offer your user some content that might actually add to their lives instead of just demanding their attention. Instead of a blaring banner ad or disruptive TV spot in the middle of your favourite show, this site not only offers some cool drone footage (who doesn’t love drone footage?) as well as some really interesting mini-documentaries.

This is the promise of multimedia design and the web Рwe can create interesting, engaging websites that people actually want to spend their time on. How exciting!
