Elbow

Along with our good friend’s at PixelPudding, we originally built the official site for Elbow on behalf of another agency back in 2008, mere months before they won the Mercury Music Prize and were instantly catapulted into the popular consciousness, with seemingly everyone snapping up a copy of their fantastic album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’.

The site itself utilises a custom content management system built specifically for the full Flash website to manage and deliver news, galleries of images, an interactive discography spanning a twenty-year career. Offering the chance for visitors to submit their memories, photos and videos to the ‘fan cubes’, an innovative use of the then-sparkly-and-new Papervision 3D technology, and a gallery that plays with depth perception and the canvas of empty space to display more than a decades’ worth of imagery.
