Digital Craft Weekly is a curated design inspiration resource for interactive designers and storytellers consisting of the best new digital projects. Published each Monday, our mission is to inspire new ways of creating interactive content and immersive digital experiences.
Ribbons by Felix Turner
Created as an ambient experiment in generative art by Felix Turner (AKA Airtight), a Technical Director based in Los Angeles, Ribbons is built to run as a live wallpaper for spare monitors. Created using Three.js, colors and geometry are procedurally generated for a different view each time. We’re particularly loving the lighting effects on this one.
WebGL Globe by Google
As an open platform for geographic data visualization, WebGL Globe is a system for inputing your own data to generate unique globe patterns. Users who have used the platform have visualized everything from their Instagram Followers to Meteorite Landings. All are worth taking a peek at, but our favorite just might be the World Elevation visualization. Feeling particularly adventurous today? Enter your own data.
Audible Visuals by Sonia Boller
Taptaro Landing Page by Michele Angeloro
As a free iOS phrasebook app featuring more than 450 useful English words and phrases translated and recorded by native Japanese speakers to help casual travelers communicate better while in Japan, Taptaro doesn’t really need to do any more convincing. Yet, they have — and their minimal-yet-effective landing page by interaction designer Michele Angeloro seals the deal.
The Goldfinch by This Page Amsterdam
‘The Goldfinch’, painted in 1654 by Carel Fabritius, has inspired people and artists for centuries and still does to this day. In this incredible example of modern digital storytelling, Amsterdam-based digital agency This Page Amsterdam has created an interactive journey through the life and times of this infamous painting. Can we have one of these for every legit painting?
