There’s so much going on here today – sites launching, SOWs due, coffee to drink, people to harass, that I’m not sure where to start. I’m always fascinated by other interactive agencies’ sites. Ours is so boring and corporate I want to throw up every time I see it. But this one for Deadline Advertising is so very nice – love the way they incorporated video. I can see why they have an impressive list of film/tv studios on their client list. Take a look.
Funktrip did this microsite (below) for Dior Midnight Poison. The videos are absolutely stunning (directed by Wong Kar-Wai), the sound design is perfect, but I think the site could have been so much more. Seemed a little compartmentalized – maybe should have expanded to fit your screen, full screen streaming, etc. In the bonus section, you have the option of downloading a widget for your desktop, which is basically…wait for it…a clock. And it will let you know if there are site updates. It looks pretty (by the way, design is very nicely done by Funktrip), but I thought widgets were supposed to help you be more productive and save time. Maybe I’m wrong. Go out and propose widgets to all your clients because they’re neat. Soon everyone will have a desktop full of crap they don’t use, but you’ll have a fat bonus in your pocket.
