We were asked by the lovely people at [PIAS] to create a site for the Editors Best Of, “The Black Gold Archives”. The idea was to have an interactive timeline based the band’s history – presented as a series of gigs, albums and events, which fans could contribute to with their memories, and subsequently share to socials. We worked closely with Editors’ management, creating a site we love – its a great combo of heavy tech yet awesome design.
Its built on WordPress, has dynamic loading / unloading of content so its lean and works on all devices, allows user uploads (with admin moderation), uses the history API so its super smooth page transitions between sections, and uses Youtube video heavily. The user, once their submission has been approved, can download a customised image with all their memory details on.
