I am developing a concept for an experiential website based on Charles Darwin and his epic journey aboard the H.M.S Beagle. This online interactive journey highlights key moments from his epic expedition, showing text fragments from Darwin’s diary.
Illustrated like a graphic novel to appeal to students not familiar with his work, the viewer can scroll the Beagle ship along the horizontal time device, travelling through the five years journey following the young Darwin in his exciting adventures . The site has extra features like a multiple answer quiz to test students, animated info-graphics and external links to further content.
For the Dutch children clothing company Lamien, I have designed and animated characters to represent their online identity.
The concept revolves around a magical world inhabited by little winged girls and their everyday activities. They live cosily inside a golden egg perched on a tree branch on the outskirts of a big city. The egg, the company’s logo, is where their makers, also represented as winged characters, are busy tailoring their clothes in a flur of activities…
A ‘Doeboek’ is the equivalent of an activity book. Children can read it and get inspired to follow some of the ideas in it, hopefully adding to their play experience. That is why the Kunsthal in Rotterdam published this book to coincide with their summer exhibitions and to encourage children to explore the museum and get to know the art works a little better.
