Oh how I missed blogging whilst I was sick with a horrid bout of Bronchitis. But as they say when something doesn’t go quite right it’s always an opportunity in disguise.
So whilst I was sick in bed, watching movies, and being all ‘woe-is-me’ I had the chance to find this awesome portfolio website. Portfolio surfing is one of my many past times but I fell in LOVE when I stumbled upon this one.
Progetty Arcade Portfolio is an interactive website made entirely out of HTML5 meaning absolutely no flash. The website itself is based on such a great concept. Bascially if you want to see their work – you’re going to have to work for it. All in the name of fun of course.
The visuals are based on the retro style of the old pixel arcade games, think Space Invaders. The aim is to shoot these little rainbow hexagons for points using your arrow and space keys and every time a star is shot you unlock some of their portfolio work. But just quietly, I love that the little hexagons make a up the whole hexagon colour spectrum! That intense rainbow of colour makes the whole page just pop.
The user, of course has the option to opt out of the game and go straight into the portfolio work but that nostalgic “Insert Coin” link is bound to get you to play!
Overall the portfolio is fun, playful and something different from the other straight up portfolios out there. And most of all it goes to show the power of HTML5!
