Transforming the printed word into a moving, digital experience
Talented poet & writer, Gus, came to us with the request of showcasing his new poetry book. After reading through and digesting the poetry, we set out to transform his book into a unique, digital experience.
Take some time, listen to your thoughts
It’s not often we are tasked with transforming poetic statements into a website. We worked with Gus to create a relatively simple, yet ambitious website that showcased a sample from his book - while allowing users to order a copy for themselves.
After reading through the book, we experimented with different visual approaches that would showcase the poetry in a way fitting for a website. This was done through custom scrolling effects that echoed metaphors of a slowly dying rose through each passage.
A site experience that feels ‘fun’, yet serious
We wanted users to experience something totally unconventional, but wanted them to understand what the rest of the book would be like. As a result, users are able to play around with the website, while giving them the opportunity to contemplate some of the messages scattered throughout the site.
Making blogs unique
Our team wanted Gus to have a unique space for him to continue sharing his thoughts, which we did so through a blog. Users are able to quickly swap between dark & light mode, allowing them to experience Gus’ writing in a way that works for them.
A full moon of creativity
Working with Gus was an absolute pleasure, as his ideas gave our team an experience to create something truly unique from other book websites. As a fully functional eCommerce website, he is able to leverage this creativity into more sales - so he can continue writing incredible passages & stories.
