«Advertising agencies frequently deal with little disasters that, more often than not, could be avoided or at least contained. Overtime, a power outage or a surprise presentation…» — The french creative studio Phoenix decided to create a collection of survival kits to help agencies get through these kinds of situations. You have to admit that this is a funny way to target real world problems. And it’s a well done website, too! via @BaptisteRingot

The award-winning french design studio Soleil Noir put together a beautiful microsite with big ambitions. Dream On is showcasing what’s possible today with Canvas and WebGL – in modern browsers like Firefox and Chrome. Now try to imagine what will be possible in the future. I can’t wait for a world in which we can print printers that can print printers. Anyways, Dream On is one terrific website. Great job by Panagiotis Thomoglou and the Soleil Noir team.
A Stroke of Luck is the story about Alex Dixon, a twelve year-old girl who suffered a stroke during brain surgery but was given a second chance at life. Her amazing story was wrapped into a beautiful and honest website, too. The site tries to offer an insight into the book by using a minimal and elegant design that incorporates large photography mixed with simple copy. «The idea is for the site to be a truly authentic representation of the book online while offering an easy way for viewers to purchase it.» Well, mission accomplished! The site is straight-forward by design and flawless by technology and more important it does what it is supposed to do. You will probably become intrigued by Alex Dixon’s story. Very good job with a lot of heart in it by Manoverboard.
Form Follows Function is a design mantra and – in this case – a collection of interactive experiences by gifted Jongmin Kim. Each experience has its own unique design and functionality. The site was created purely with HTML5 & CSS3 and everything is pretty much device-neutral. Outstanding job!
The Trip is a transmedia storytelling project. It consists of HTML5 interactive film for iPad, Desktop and Mobile, music concept album by Smolik, short cinema film and photo series. It tells the story of Jack Torrance, the man who in 1969 took America to the moon. The site works best on Google Chrome – and it’s a must see. Credits: Kissinger Twins & unit9
