Koniku® — Intelligence is Natural

almost 6 years ago from , Designer at FiftySeven®

Koniku Inc. is the world's first Neurotechnology company. There are merging synthetic neurobiology with silicon — Bio is Tech™

My team and I was very excited that we were offered the opportunity to work on such a complex and interesting subject. In a world today, where it is harder to stay unique and at the same time to retain quality, we had to illustrate and create educational storytelling experience of complex subject and try to connect it all up through the main design.

    Feedback from one colleague though. All he said was:

    Extremely heavy site to load and run, but the ends justify the means! This is an extremely slick site, love the graphics and the interactions. I am extremely skeptical of the product claims, but that's not your bag to deal with!

    Well done, all in all.

    Loving this! It's quite heavy though, you could easily optimize it to load faster. (svaka čast)

    Visually very nice but after scrolling up and down and through those sliding reveal image I'm not really any the wiser what this is selling. For me there's too much focus on fancy transitions rather than providing proper insight; the preloader made me want to leave, you've got to ask yourself what is this site providing that users will be more than happy to sit there long enough for the content to load.

    Reminds me of the top Flash sites from back in the day but as with Flash sites there is always a bit of a negotiation from an interaction perspective with areas demoing how to interact with the content. From a personal point of view, I don't like how much of the information is hidden behind + bubbles or reveal sliding images. There are areas which can be easily missed.

      "I'm not really any the wiser what this is selling"

      Really? It's hardly vague.

      "We are building co-processors made of biological neurons." With a big picture of said processor and a video/site to illustrate it's applications.

      What's not to get?

        The point is in between the scroll jacking, the over the top transitions, animations and having to dig around to find out more information in hidden widgets this is potentially an accessibility and usability nightmare.

          Possibly - But I disagree. Anything that's clickable is either highlighted/animated as such and for the click and scroll, it even demonstrates that as it comes into view. It feels like any possible usability issue has been addressed.

          The context and content is clearly geared towards the tech savvy. Just because it isn't laid out like a word doc doesn't mean it's automatically bad. I totally understand your points - IMO this is a perfect candidate for such interactions. It helps tell a story and adds to the wow factor of the product.

          • I could have done without the scroll jacking though.

    Heavy loading at first but graphics and interactions are awesome... thank you (but, heavy ;) )
