Moving Brands AR Book Cover

2009

RenderHeads worked as technology partners with Moving Brands to help them create an augmented reality web interface, which formed part of the release of Moving Brand’s Living Identity paper.

They believe that branding shouldn’t stand still; that a brand should be as dynamic as the world around it. This is the core message of their new ‘Living Identity’ paper, a small book launched during the 2009 London Design Festival. As well as serving as the display, the cover of the book is also a means of navigating the content. Rotating the cover selects between their Flickr, blog, Vimeo and Twitter feeds.

Visiting the Moving Brands Living Identity blog to experience the application for yourself.
