The Eighth Continent Project is a Boulder based initiative dedicated to furthering the consumer space industry. Needing a website that could convey the wealth of information they publish yet still be engaging and capture peoples' imaginations, they contracted Planet Telex. In addition to producing a clean and distinctive website design and layout, Planet Telex also created a stunning header animation that pulls down from the heavens and rotates a beautiful space montage against a silhouette of cityscapes and countrysides. Because the animation consists of two discs rotating in opposite directions, the foreground and background combinations are nearly limitless- you can watch it for hours and never see the same sequence together twice.
The 8C Project loved the results and has hopes that this new site will generate more interest and investment in the private space technologies industry. See the new design for yourself below:
