Just before christmas I released new sites for the Nudie Jeans and Whipping Floyd spring/summer collections.
The new Nudie Jeans Collection site
The Nudie Jeans collection site is a part of the Nudie Jeans site, for which I am webmaster (The Fit Guide, Videos and Gallery are by Kokokaka, but the rest I’m responsible for). It’s built for Flash 8, with a back-end in PHP which tells the presentation layer which items are in which category, what their names are and where all the images are located.
The new Whipping Floyd Collection site
The Whipping Floyd site was designed by Magnus Heed of Whipping Floyd, I did the programming and animation. Since the site is quite animation-heavy I created most of the site using timeline animations, which I very rarely do.
It doesn’t have any loading sequences, and doesn’t really need any. Rather, it uses some clever loading scheduling to make sure that things are loaded before they are needed. It works really well if you have a broadband connection (which almost everyone in the target audience has).
The site is also fully bookmarkable and reload-safe, actually one of the first sites I made in this way (the core of the site was created half a year ago for the autumn/winter collection).
