Tim Aidlin, Microsoft: Art Director + La Surprise: Creative Director & Business Manager, Development Lead, Junior Developer, Senior Visual Designer & Project Manger, Junior Visual Designer
On September 15, 2010, Microsoft held an event in San Francisco to announce the release of Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 Beta. For this event, I engaged three agencies to develop websites that pushed the limits of HTML5 and would take advantage of Internet Explorer 9′s capabilities. For the event, we wanted to wow the press with “The Beauty of the Web.” To this end, one of the companies with which I developed a site was La Surprise.
UPDATE: This site has been retired by the owners, La Suprise.
FWA Site of the Day: October 19,2010
Life is a flower
A mind-boggling kaleidoscope experience that showcases Internet Explorer 9′s ability to create amazing randomised symmetrical effects and shapes without the need for plugins. Draw your colourful creation to the backing of the oh-so-slightly creepy fairground music. So mad it has to be good.
FlowerOscope, created by the Parisian advertising agency La Surprise, is an absolutely beautiful and enchanting emulation of the classic kaleidoscope toy.
