I love movement, that’s what I consider to be the most interesting part in graphic design. But I was really surprised to discover that you could get movement through a single completely still image… At least that’s the way the brain interprets it. That’s the work of a certain dr. Akiyoshi Kitaoka, who even though he works with images in a domain explored by some artists, such as the very famous Escher, doesn’t consider himself as one but as a scientist. Be careful his work can make you dizzy, because it goes against all logic, epileptics especially should not visit his website. That’s what he writes on his homepage : “Should you feel dizzy, you had better leave this page immediately”

I’m not really part of the target audience (Women, older than me, with a driver’s license) but the Peugeot 1007 TV advertisements having raised curiosity in me, as it was clearly pointing towards a website which could only have been developed with a big amount of money, I went to see what it was about. It’s not an incredible website, it’s quite simplistic, and makes me think of a rally game from year 2000. But it’s rich media, and the videos are well made and well integrated to the page. I have always liked this mix of technologies which is more and more common.

It’s always nice to discover a company which gives major importance to its communication over the internet, so much they are ready to take some risks, with a website which doesn’t look as common as all the others, but rather with creative content, close to art. That’s in my opinion the case for “Le coq sportif”, famous brand which manages to make its image look younger and more dynamic. Whether you like sports or not, I think it’s difficult to be indifferent in front of their websites, which all have a very different kind of look and feel. They have something for every taste.
