KIKK Festival 2018
This stunning site is linked to a digital culture festival, the KIKK Festival, taking place in Belgium later this year. The theme is all about microorganisms seen through the lens of a microscope. Just look at those vibrant colours and the playfulness!
The transitions, hover effects and animations while scrolling and navigating are delightful and visually so impressive, as are the little touches throughout the responsive design. As you navigate deeper, a great example of implementing a complex, detailed timeline layout on mobile are the schedule pages, which need to quickly give us details and timings of the festival’s events.
We chatted with Henry Daubrez, CEO of Dogstudio, whose team was behind the site and he explained how they wanted to convey a hand-drawn feeling to the whole design, so during the build they hand animated, frameby-frame, all of the organisms – that’s attention to detail! He went on to explain how it runs on Dogstudio’s own content management system (Emulsion) and is fully editable, which is a feat for a website this crafted. A worthy winner of site of the month.
“Bold colours, beautiful fonts and stunning animations bring to life the creativity of the festival. Unique design at its best.” Christine Berry, lead UX desi gner, COOK
