Site of the week: Dataveyes

There’s a genuine beauty in numbers and this site crunches the code to create an app-like experience for desktop and mobile

As an agency that “engineers Human-Data interactions”, you’d be forgiven for thinking this team from the Parisian suburb of Pantin were engaged in some kind of digital dark arts. But this is what dataveyes.com is all about, communicating a potentially complex message in an effective way.

For starters we get a faultless Anglicised version for foreign visitors, but crucially a progressive web experience that targets and adapts to the platform. The opening part of the site has been built more like an app, leveraging a raft of code libraries to target browser and device support. Beautifully animated particles pop and fizz, wiggling and pulsating to form line drawings so indicative of data-driven visualisations. This ‘About’ section synchronises with a drip feed of punchy definitions for the unique work Dataveyes does, seamlessly moving into more static pages of content.

“The toughest thing was to create a visually appealing interface that would do justice to our vision and would also do a good job at explaining how we create insightful data visualisations for our clients,” explains Dataveyes co-founder Caroline Goulard. “We put a particular emphasis on our identity so it best reflects our skill set and mission: to tell insightful stories from data. This is why we attempted to create a generative and dynamic identity.”
