I love innovative work like this.
While cleaning up some old posts from 2003, I noticed a translation of an old page I wrote on inheritance (back in Flash 5 days) by the folks at Bascule in Japan. Revisiting their site was a nice surprise.
Although the page took awhile to load, the result is worth the wait.
The long page is all Flash with nice sound effects. As one scrolls down the page, different sections are activated when they come into view. Love how they did the video guides from three different locations to their office (wait for loading to finish next to the map), and the “matrix effect” when the guides meet. There are many little surprises along the way – just scroll and explore.
At the bottom of the page, click on the “genie” to literally wrap up the visit. Amazing work!
Check out the Bascule site. I think it’s time to visit Japan again!
