Immersive experiences online

In a recent session with sally she asked that we all find 5 examples of immersive online internet sites that tell a story. After researching the internet i found a few that was of real interest.

  • I believe that the sports ESPN website gives the audience a real immersive experience. It has a great and easy navigation system and it is cleanly designed. Which also has the identifiable brand logo. it also has hover over buttons, so that the audience can see where they are on the page. In the below the fold part of the website it uses social media that has been embedded into the webpage. This is incredibly useful as social media is everywhere, most people nowadays use social media in some ways.

  • The next immersive online experience i looked at was Zensorim This is a health and fitness website. i personally believe that the design is very simple but gives the viewers a good immersive experience as it is clean has navigation and screen changes. Small amounts of information on the home page is useful as people read differently on a website.

  • Another immersive website was one in which we covered in the lasted session the firestorm – this uses a photojournalism and story way of telling the narrative. it is really effective for the audience as it is navigational. the audience can follow the story in a linear way or chose areas to look at. There is audio and videos that help to portray the devastation and damage the blaze caused. It is a clean and professional looking website and has a real human quality. Its very personal it makes you think that could have been my family.
