The Cool Club collaborated with FWA and Taschen to make a deck of cards displaying the 54 coolest websites in history. The cards are released alongside the book ‘Web Design, The Evolution of the Digital Era 1990-today’ by Rob Ford (FWA) and Julius Wiedemann (Taschen). FWA was established in May 2000 as Favourite Website Awards, in England, UK. FWA is where you go to experience cutting-edge innovation in digital design and development. It’s a space that encourages the digital industry to push the boundaries of technology, to show people what is possible.
Creating an interactive world
To coincide with the launch of the cards and the book, we made an interactive gallery website to display the cards. We built the website using three.js to bring the cards to life in animated 3D. Each card interacts with the user by elevating up to tell the story of the influential website behind each card, there is also a link to allow the user to join an online discussion. The end result is a fully interactive online deck of cards that showcases the illustrations and stories behind each card.
