BASIC Moves – Website

BASIC is a branding and digital design agency who do some incredible work. To show their skills, as well as announce to the world that they had a new office, they turned to their core competency – building beautiful multimedia experiences.

This announcement takes the form of a website, where the user can investigate the thinking behind BASIC’s new building as well as hear sound clips and see beautiful images of the space itself. We especially love the way the website blends photography, design and web to create an incredibly enriching, involving experience.

Microsoft – By The Numbers

This website by Microsoft Story Lab takes a bunch of really interesting facts and numbers about Microsoft and turns them into an interactive, interesting digital infographic.

This is the perfect example of how creativity can take something ostensibly ‘boring’ and turn it into an appealing, interesting and interactive experience.

Do visit the website here.

Uncanny Valley Studio – Website

This website is for Uncanny Valley Studio; a Paris-based studio that makes digital installations, visuals and connected experiences. We especially love the crazy tube-like effect they used on the work, it is just so unique and out there! It feels so unlike almost any other website you’ve used before.

We do suggest you check it out. You can visit the site here.

Spicy No Spicy – Website

Creating a really great website for a restaurant has become somewhat of an art these days. We really appreciate what The First The Last have done here for Ukrainian restaurant, Spicy No Spicy. The restaurant itself has a very well considered interior design and one can immediately see the logic in having a website to match.

Great illustration, beautiful use of colour and a really nice cursor (who would have thought that would be something to mention!) make this site a really great example of a functional site that does its job incredibly well, while also being a joy to use and look at.

Is Japan Cool?

This project by Enjin an Birdman for ANA, a Japanese airline company, asks a question we probably know the answer to: Is Japan Cool? (Yes, of course it is!) and answers it in a really fun way. This website, which is all about the beauty and importance of craftsmanship in Japanese culture, allows users to upload an image of themselves, then create their own samurai avatar, using an online tool. Once it’s done, they can then download the schematics and print their creation on a 3D printer.

Is Japan cool? Most definitely! Even more so than before!

You can visit the site here. Check out the video below for more details.

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?
