The Space Needle Interactive/Experiential Design

Interactive, interface design for the Space Needle web site and kiosks in the building.


The Space Needle Interactive/Experiential Design
Winner - 2009 Addy Award

One of my favorite design projects to date. 
During our research we discovered that The Space Needle is the most iconic form of "Googie" architecture (think Jetsons). 

To keep true to the spirit of the Worlds Fair while updating the interactive and web presence we developed a modern twist to the look we lovingly refer to as "Newggie."

The Space Needle Web Site Homepage.  Did you know there are five levels in The Space Needle?  Animating mouseovers with radiating rings, we created this layout to demystify all there is to offer when you "go up".
