Have you ever had a fantastic website experience online (other than ours)? No? Well, let us show you what we have discovered this week.

  1. The Power of Sound.

 

Zajno Crew has designed a website that allows a user to experience green energy to power change and save the world all through a game.

The Power of Sound provides a visual experience, promoting the need for sustainable energy to secure our future.

Some may not know this, but sound is also another source of energy. There is still some research to be done, but sound energy could revolutionise sustainable power.

The game they had created imagines a future where entire cities are powered by sound. 

Zajon Crew created a functional illustration concept and explored movement by using a mixture of software such as; GSAP animation, firebase, illustrator, animation, SVG and CSS3 to produce the interactive website.

  2. Listening Together.

 

We all vibe to Spotify and we’re a big fan of their year in numbers, but believe it or not, they have surprised us yet again with their creative abilities.

‘Listening together’ is an experience that shows songs being played by different users around the world, at the same time.

Spotify uses machine learning and AI to act on insights from external data and user behaviour. This method makes Spotify one of the most popular music streaming sites on the web.

With millions of users listening to music every minute of the day, Spotify accumulates customer data that consists of playlist data, song preferences, geographic location of listeners, most used devices, keyword preferences and more.

Back in 2014, media artist Kyle McDonald experimented on her idea of finding two people who were simultaneously listening to the same song continuously. 

Spotify’s concept was born. When you go on the site, you will see a  3-D globe with location markers. The markers represent users who are hitting play on the same song in different locations.

By launching the Listening Together campaign it brings the global music connections together in a visual world map and makes you travel around the world virtually and experience it through music.

You can visit Australia, Lisbon, Canada, London, Chile, Taiwan and many more (even in lockdown).

The site states how far away you are located compared to other countries you can select on the globe.

4. A Life Extraordinary.

 

Immerse yourself with Moooi’s designs which has an Alice in Wonderland feel where you feel you have fallen down a rabbit hole and into another creative world.

Moooi started in 2001 and is still inspiring and seducing the world with innovative and breathtaking designs. The extra “ooo” in Moooi is to convey something extra in terms of uniqueness and beauty.

The site, created by Build in Amsterdam where they use a multi-sensory brand experience, an immersive world and an unexpected uncovering of their newest products.

The website brings its products to life through playful interactions and sensory elements. BIA worked closely with KLOAQ, an audio design studio, that tailored Moooi’s interactive soundtrack. To improve the shopping experience, the site used a combination of; parallax, transitions, micro-interactions, CSS3, Node.js, ReactJS and PixiJS.

Marcel Wanders & Casper Vissers, the owners of Moooi said: “Our collection is always original, unexpected, eclectic, rebellious and sophisticated and is always on the edge of commercial reality and cultural interest.”

That is precisely what they have created.

5. What’s your catch of the day?

 

Not everyone knows what food or methods we can choose to lower our carbon footprint. 

There is lots of information on the internet, but some may argue, little that would get the younger generation interested. 

In comes WWF. They have created an interactive game where you, the user, have choices you pick on what seafood you want, how you fish for them and different travel automobiles to send your food to you.

Each stage you have chosen, the site provides you information on how it damages the environment and at the end calculates your carbon footprint.

The best part is you can replay unlimited times to learn how to lower your carbon footprint and hopefully have that information embedded in your knowledge.

No matter your generation, this experience has striking visuals, smooth transitions and interesting facts.
