Describe the brief from the client

Philips Sound designs products for real music lovers, people to whom every single detail in music matters. Demonstrate that Philips is ‘Obsessed with sound’ and claim that you can hear every detail with the brand’s audio products.

To appeal to this target we created a unique interactive music video, where users could single out any member of the 51-strong Grammy Award-winning orchestra to hear each individual’s contribution, as well as discover facts about these ‘unheard heroes’.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to present an enormous amount of information in a manageable and logical way, and still keep the design clean. The site had to be understandable and easy to navigate for people who do not make music or are not familiar with musical notations.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The design, interaction design and user interface design departments worked together closely to make navigation through the site as intuitive as possible, to find the right balance between beauty and usability, and also present a great amount of musical information in an understandable way.

We laid the entire experience within a fine-grained grid of pixels, the smallest possible detail in webdesign, to accentuate the focus of detail. The colour pallet – created by shooting the video through pieces of crystal – comes back throughout the navigation and overall style of the site, giving it a united feel.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
We created an interactive visualiser where users could see each and every musician and the pitch of every note being played. Introduced people to the experience in a linear way by placing the musicians in a specific order, matching the musical build up of the piece.

By using the visualiser to single out a musician, we created an intuitive way of navigating through the piece. Everything feels united, intuitive and is designed while keeping the campaign thought ‘every detail matters’ in mind.
