iPad App Skullcandy ‘Crusher’ at CES 2013
Skullcandy asked KS to create an iPad app for this years CES that would allow users to experience the Crusher’s amazing audio quality. To capture their reaction, we used the iPad’s camera to record and playback their reactions while they listend to a track. The app would then email them their video to share, all direct from Skullcandy’s CES event booth.
Microsite The North Face Jacket Finder
As part of The North Face’s ecommerce website, Knight Studios was asked to create a microsite that would act as a filter for the user, allowing them to view just the products that are relevant to them, as they plan for the winter and trip ahead. We created fully drag and drop interface for the client that was really intuitive for the user to use – it was a case of why wouldn’t you use this to find your products!
As part of adidas Rugby’s campaign for the British & Irish Lions 2013 tour of Australia, we were asked to create a Facebook app that was highly intuitive and delivered an immersive, engaging user experience. We designed a Lions Team Selector with drag-and-drop interface that allowed the user to create their own Lions team, from a squad of 60 players chosen by a Ben Kay. The app experience is very dynamic, with ball animations when positions are selected and dropped onto the pitch, background music, audio button interactions and app elements sliding in and out of screen for section transitions. The end result is an app that creates a shareable user team, that allows the user to save all their teams in a gallery, challenge friends to create a better team and view all top teams created by users.
When Skullcandy asked us to create the first of their new ‘Backstage with…’ series, we knew that the aesthetic needed to have that on-the-road vibe, so we reached for our gaffa tape and went to work! The app follow’s the band on their European tour, giving the user’s backstage access to The Hives, following the buzz around each gig, plus exclusive gifts and content. By entering their unique code, content from the tour is unlocked as well as a chance to see them live at their home-coming Stockholm gig.
Website 3T Cycling
Working again with our good friends at Shift, we were asked to create the new website for the high-end, Turin based, cycling component manufacturer 3T. Well known for creating beautifully crafted and elegant products – this was something that we wanted to realise in our designs, creating the very best platform to present and showcase their products.
Shift Active Media
A mobile app that tracked the Skullcandy US skate team as they travelled around Europe on a three-city tour. The skaters posted images to Instagram, geolocating them through Fousquare check-ins around each city. These images were then pinned to maps of Barcelona, Copenhagen and Paris, allowing users to explore the skater-generated content.
Installation Skullcandy Supreme Sound in-store app
An in-store app for Skullcandy to promote their headphone’s Supreme Sound. We produced a mobile app for installation in US and European stores for iPad, Android 7 and 10 inch devices. The video-based app is developed around demonstrating the products USP, their superior sound. This is demonstrated by particle animations reacting to the different sounds as well as the app’s product section allowing the user to zoom in to view and 360 degree touch rotation.
As part of the adidas olympic #takethestage campaign, Knight Studios was asked to create a Facebook app that invited users to create their own campaign image. The app pulls in the users Facebook albums and images and allows them to crop and place their chosen image alongside adidas and Team GB athletes Jess Ennis and Phillips Idowu. Prompted by the ‘what will you take _____?’ question, the user can add and share their own mantra in the app’s gallery and with friends.
Website Adidas BUPA London 10K
An adidas running Facebook app that allowed runners of the BUPA London 10k to check in at the race to unlock the competition app. The check-in acted as the gate to the app, where the user could enter two competitions ato win some adidas running gear.
Website Kobe VII System iD
For Kobe’s latest shoe launch, we created a Facebook app that allowed the user to create a customised signature shoe ahead of the public launch. For this footwear update the Nike Basketball team created a shoe system rather than just a shoe, enabling the user to further tailor their shoe to their own specific needs. Once they had created their shoe they could then share it with their friends on Facebook and Twitter. Users could also submit their creation to the gallery where they could view and like other user’s shoes.
