ACTIVATION NODEPLUS is committed to create distinctive creative, fine design, and interactive technology into the forefront of the digital experience creative. SIXPENCE project challenge is not just the creation and brand temperament consistent visual design and experience, but requires the use of HTML5 technology to achieve a single version across platforms and across numerous browsers.

We believe in excellent interactive digital works, all creative and design, will eventually translate into the experience we render.

In this project, we adopted a clever CSS Keyframes Animation for users to switch pages when browsing the wheel, creating a great sense of space “perspective” view results, and in many places in the entire work unit, through a highly visual impact HTML DIV 3D real-time force and the technical difficulty of “cutting” experience (Real-time DIV Scissor Experience). Unlike simple cut a picture that contains graphic images for complex real-time overall cut DIV element, this is a very innovative and successful front-end technology use. The sounds complicated technical innovation, convergence to the final fine visual presentation, we finally did it smooth consistent user experience across different browsers and across platforms.

The works will be included into the Awwwards Design Yearbook, and published in “The Best 365 Websites Around The World” 2014, this is the first creative agency in mainland China to win this honor.
