Technical Details

The amazing Matt Smith designed the site and implemented the 3D work using three.js and react-three-fiber. I worked on the React side of things (using React hooks and a mobX store), built the DOM components and interface to the Three components, with Lambda@Edge functions on AWS Cloudfront to support sharing functionality.


The website has won numerous awards including site of the day at Awwwards, CSS Design Awards and FWA.
