Again, a site we created has won the Site Of The Day award at DesignLicks for today, 21 May. This time the site is – an online campaign we created for Iceland Express. Who doesn’t love traveling and talking sock puppets?
Congratulations to all who worked on the project, and to Iceland Express for the added exposure.

Project: Photo of the Week – Iceland Express

January 21, 2008

Photo of the Week - Iceland Express

We just finished a small project for Iceland Express. It is called “Photo of the week”, which basically wraps around a collaboration between photographic genius and web sensation Rebekka Guðleifsdóttir and Iceland Express.

Our job was to create a frame that would fit within the Iceland Express web, holding true to their visual style and web template. The frame also needed to allow the photos to really shine but, at the same time, we needed to fit additional information “along the edges” – so to speak… and that’s basically what we did.

We created a little navigational “slider” control, which allows users to really soak up each “photo of the week” while they can still reach additional information easily (and pleasantly). We also used LightBox (javascript) to layer the photo over the whole screen – when clicked on. We think the final result looks pretty cool!
