NewActon

AJAX loading One Pager that forms a visual directory for Canberra’s arts and cultural precinct, NewActon. The Singe Page website features lovely illustrations representing each category of residency/service within the location. What a special x-factor how the site uses a dynamic weather driven color palette to reflect the mood of the precinct in the website itself (you can demo this by changing the day of weather bottom-left).

NewActon. One word, one fine place to live, work and just be. We took the rulebook, looked up classic principles of excellence in architecture and urban design, ripped out the pages that prescribe same-same and characterless, and added a chapter entitled, โ€œHow to create a truly innovative cultural precinct that shifts the status quo, and be awarded multiple times for doing so.โ€ And then we scribbled our name on the title page in crayon.
Steve and I rap about the Refactoring UI book launch.
