The Skittles Fizzl’d Fruits Campaign is an extension of a larger effort to create a world that would house all of skittles pack series. Skittles is known for innovating new flavor packs, such as Fizzl’d Fruits. This site was strategically built to be completely customizable each time a new flavor pack is released. A ton of bizarre content was created for this ever-scrolling website to characterize the Fizzl’d Fruit Skittles pack.

Microsoft challenged Big Spaceship to explore the new features and functionality of the latest beta release of IE9. “Always Beautiful” is an interactive experience drawing inspiration from trends and memes over the history of the web. IE9’s unique use of the user’s graphics processor allowed for hundreds of assets on the screen at once with no drop in performance. And with native browser support of HTML5 standards and SVG, the creation could be be generated based on real-time user input and output at any size. Users can create and print their own posters at home.
I had the pleasure of redesigning Corpsify, a collaborative art project inspired by a collective drawing method known as ‘exquisite corpse.’ Once made in flash, now powered with HTML5. I’m in love with all of the wonderful, colorful characters that have been conceived from such a simple game.

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) approached Big Spaceship to create an online kiosk experience that would showcase the wide spectrum of Tim Burton’s artwork. Techniques used in the making of this website were inspired by Tim Burton’s earlier stop motion films. With a hands-on approach, we constructed model staircases with foam board and conducted stop-motion tests. In the final product, the navigational framework for the site was all hand drawn and animated frame by frame. The sum of these techniques assisted us in capturing Tim Burtons’ dark and whimsical aesthetic.
