Storytrail is a website with carefully curated stories on the format of video guides. It features hundreds of small video stories per city that needed to be served through a browser without loosing fluidity and performance. The brief was to get a very straightforward and graphically simple with the key idea that the user never gets drowned with information and never gets lost. Juicy human affairs served by demand.
We crafted a website where the user first chooses a city/trail and has absolute control over what he wants next, always with a clear notion of where it’s located. The user has 2 important ways to navigate: on the timeline, that is an extension of the identity, and on the map if you never want to loose the geographic relation of the stories towards the city map. Almost like a close friend telling you where to go on the nigh before before you go to sleep.
Illustration has a key role in Storytrail’s experience. The brand extension was based on the thickness of the logo that became a living line across the website and Jason, World traveler & founder, illustration leads you the way and explains how everything properly works before he guides you through the must-sees. All animated through a PNG sprite because sometimes video isn't crisp enough for our eyes.
The website is profoundly optimized for mobile with lower quality videos, for obvious roaming bandwidth restrictions that a majority of tourists experience.
We also developed an app with an offline mode so that the users would have the city’s full contents right on the smartphone. Mapbox was the open-source mapping platform used for our custom-designed maps, we love it.
