Last Autumn I had the honour of being invited to be a judge for the annual Lovie Awards*. However, as categories and projects were assigned randomly, I sadly didn’t get a chance to look over the “Navigation” category. But when the results were in, I was pleasantly amused.
The winner, an advertising microsite for an Adidas soccer range, featured a large round geometric structure resembling a wireframe football. At each point on this 3D shape were animated icons representing different sections of the site. The user could navigate by rotating the object around in space.
Anyone who knows of the work of the late Roy Stringer, or my work for him and the Amaze company, is probably smiling knowingly right now.
