Site of the Month November 2012: Clouds Over Cuba

Article by Awwwards Team in News - December 16

On November 5th the Awwwards jury chose as their Site of the Day an amazing website, Clouds Over Cuba, which ultimately ended up becoming Site of the Month for November 2012, and some users have asked for it as Site of the Year. It documented the story of the Cuban Missile Crisis in the year of its 50th anniversary, one of the most delicate moments of the Cold War and in the history of the twentieth century, and that meant something unprecedented.

An amazing, fullscreen immersive web experience for the user which is made possible with Javascript, HTML5 and Web Socket technology. The narrative is supported by interactive multimedia historical documentation from the JFK Library that can be accessed instantly during the course of the video-story in an innovative way of displaying web content.

The Clouds over Cuba site is an excellent work of storytelling developed jointly by Tool studio and The Martin Agency, from the USA. We are honored to recognize both, and the appreciation that our jury and the first users of the new Awwwards have expressed, by awarding this site the certificate for Site of the Month.
