New Look and Feel for Mojave Experiment

New Look and Feel for Mojave Experiment

Gone is the dark and mysterious backdrop to the Mojave Experiment, now there is a fresh and light look and feel to www.mojaveexperiment.com.

The “deep zoom” navigation is also really cool and I love the way everything falls into a 3D world with depth of field – very nice.

We’ve also now released the demos that we showed to the customers which is good (they can be found on the green band at the bottom right).

  • Meh. The deep zoom is a nice touch, and it's great to see them finally add some more videos that makes sense, but I liked the old look better. There's just always something about a glossy black background, with bright white text that makes something look so cool.

    I'm not much a fan of this more bland white that's appearing on Windows pages, with some small splashes of color, and edgy font. Just my opinion.

  • they had some grief internally for not using Silverlight so i guess they took the opportunity to line the colours up with some of the other Vista campaigns that are running.

    Maybe they could have a black/white toggle to appease you? :)

  • Thanks for the praise on the site! Not many blogs are focusing on the implementation, more on the subject matter. I suppose that is the point, though.

    As for a 'dark' theme, we'll have to add that to the backlog... :)

  • Always try new things! :-)

    Dark theme would be ace!

    Cheers
