La Rosa del Desierto

La Rosa del Desierto is a single page web site. It was created for a short film that narrates a story of love between two children living in the occupied Western Sahara, forced to live apart due to the social situation in that territory.

This is the typical example of the challenges faced when creating a landing page for a product. In this case, a short film with a significant impact in various festivals. The goal was to create an immersive landscape that resembled the one in the film. Using JavaScript, we created a window to the desert that changes when the user scrolls through the page.

The page adapts to the screen size and scroll is performed in a way that resembles pages turning in a very dynamic way. In all our works, wire framing and mock-ups were heavily used to involve the clients in the process of design and web development.

Dynamic effects

We have used different effects to achieve a modern, dynamic look. SVG animations, CSS effects and JavaScript based page transitions were implemented.

The page keeps its aesthetics in mobile devices, but is slightly adapted to improve readability and user interaction. In order to achieve this effect across platforms, we followed a responsive design process.
