Science magazine Seed launched a microsite that accompanies their year end issue. Created by Fangohr, The Universe in 09, is an exploration of the content of the print issue through an engaging flash experience.

From the studio’s case study: “Seed trusted us with little interference to carry the responsibility for launching our ambitious project in just a matter of weeks to coincide with the world economic forum “davos”. In our brainstorm session we made sure that content was king. We went out of our way to create ways to show off the spectacular graphics and photos in the issue at full resolution and give the user the chance to explore the breadth of content first hand. In keeping true with the print issue design, we integrated a way-finding mechanism in form of a spectral navigation: Just roll over the bar to highlight the associated content nodes or hover over a node to see its’ tags appear.”
