The calming end of a chaotic year

Client: De Morgen

The concept

Every year, De Morgen – a leading Belgian newspaper – releases an overview of the most important articles they published throughout the year. This year we decided to create an online experience that gives visitors an interactive overview fit for 2020: the most chaotic year of our lives.

We launched a responsive website with 12 interactive kaleidoscopic scenes. One for each month, built with elements representing the most important news items for that month. The user can interact and play around with the kaleidoscopes as well as discover the news articles that are related to every element in the kaleidoscope.
