Overview

Background

April 1st, 2017 marked Yahoo! JAPAN's 21st anniversary. To celebrate, they created a project that celebrates not only their history, but also the Internet's history.

Execution

In the first three months, we meticulously researched the history of the Internet along with a team of experts. On the illustration side, we collaborated with John Hathway and his team to create an overall outline, followed by some rough sketches for the individual 1390 events. This was followed by more detailed illustrations, then finally adding color and finishing touches. The illustrations were meticulously animated by our tech team, and turned into an interactive website where users could click on events to view more information and share them on social media. At the same time, we created 4 different versions of the website so that all users could visit the website (low and high resolution for smartphones, PC and Mac compatible versions).The process in all took 8 months for completion.
