One Giant Read

The Challenge

British ESA astronaut Tim Peake has successfully launched into space where he will become the first Brit to undertake a long duration mission on the International Space Station (ISS). The launch was celebrated across the UK as millions of people watched the live feed and more than 15,000 people gathered at launch events across the country to wave Tim on his way.

Meanwhile, back on earth, Literature Works set us the ambitious goal to design and create an interactive and engaging website for their new reading project – One Giant Read, following the progress of Tim Peake and his Principia mission, along with competitions, films, media casts, podcasts and all things science, sci-fi and literature. In partnership with the RNIB and the UK Space Agency, and supported by Gollancz, The Poetry Archive and the Plymouth Literature Project at Plymouth University.

The Project

We developed a site that utilises strong visuals inspired by the subject material and is presented in a compact and user-friendly interface. Acting as an interactive ‘digital magazine’, each month brings about a new topic for content whilst older articles are stored creating an information archive.

The Result

The result is a fully responsive and retina-ready, future-proofed website for use on a variety of devices.
