The Colour Clock

The Colour Clock is an ongoing personal project that was born from the curiosity of translating time onto the hexadecimal colour scale. Hours are mapped to the red channels, minutes to green and seconds to blue, with a measure that cycles from black to white over 24 hours. Executed as a minimally designed web-app and screensaver, I also had help from The Receptacle to provide an Android Live Wallpaper. The combination of good design with the universally understood and appreciated attributes of time and colour have led to a completely unexpected popularity, especially among design nerds. The Android App has been downloaded over 20,000 times and the desktop screensaver over 70,000 times, while the website receives an average of 150,000 visits a month.

Launch

Shell @ Gastech

Gastech 2014 gave Shell a great opportunity to showcase their work in the LNG sector, particularly the launch of the world's largest floating natural gas facility. The event space was supported with several touchscreens and tablets loaded with interactive information relating to Shell's capabilities within the gas chain. As art director and designer on the project I established icons, look and feel, motion and gestures to complement user experience for touch as well as liaising with technical partners for quality assurance and direction. Having demonstrated to the client the principles of a universal content platform the aim is to scale this app to suit any of the many global events that Shell participate in.
