Sykamore Small Wind provide small wind turbines to people wishing to have a localised source of green energy. The Sykamore Logo design is designed to sit over a sky coloured background as well as on white. SSW wanted to incorporate a sycamore seed ‘helicopter’ in the logo to resonate with spinning wind turbine blades. The alternate spelling of sycamore was used to differentiate between other businesses by the same name.
As a forward thinking green energy company they wanted a unique twist to the website to reinforce the brand, so we included a ‘time of day script’, and CAD animation of the turbines. Read more below.
The website shows a tranquil scene indicating the small scale of the turbines. We provided an animation of the turbine moving by using the turbine CAD model and rendering it in Cinema 4D. We then outputted a flash movie.
The other cool feature on this website is the ‘time of day’ feature. This means that the home page will indicate the time of day that you viewing the website by altering the scene. The different times of day can be previewed using the tab at the top right of the page.
