Every week at Fueled, our London-based lead designer Rob Palmer shares a handful of inspirational websites with our teams in New York and Chicago. This weekly email acts like a virtual water cooler, encouraging us to congregate across time zones and discuss what brands and blogs are doing to push new trends in web design.
This site is a treasure trove of design inspiration. Simple and to the point, it's a collection of Japanese programmer and designer Saito Kenji's CodePen sketches. There are 53 days of work featured so settle in.
Jimmy Raheriarisoa is a Strasbourg based freelance art director who likes burgers. We love looking at the personal portfolios of accomplished designers - what better way to flaunt your stuff than through an animated, exciting, all around epic website? There's a lot of personality here, poke around.
Big Hero 6
Have you hung out with a little kid lately? Not only do they know how to unlock, swipe, and tap with ease, the can also navigate websites and find content better than we can. This website for Disney's new movie Big Hero 6 (!) is aimed at this savvy child user. It's easy to navigate and there are lots of moving sights and sounds. Once they're exhausted the site, they'll be
brainwashed ready to see the movie.
A Spacecraft for All
We've been really enjoying Google's Chrome Experiments. This one is particularly awesome. In 1978, a satellite was launched to study the sun. Now, through a crowdfunded effort, a group is attempting to make contact and gain control of it for the benefit of citizen science. Beautifully follow the spacecraft's current and previous journeys.
What does this device do? Who cares! The website is great! It's fun, it's engaging, it's clean, it's refreshingly minimalist. Sure, the scrolling animations can be a bit glitchy but whatever! Slide into a happy, less complicated state.
