An Awesome Book!


Use All Five teamed up with Google Creative Labs to help design and develop a digital version of 'An Awesome Book!', written by Dallas Clayton. Creative Labs asked us to create a website that would bring 'An Awesome Book!' to life for readers around the world.

We designed and built an engaging site that delivers Clayton’s work to readers in 17 languages.

The overall concept and goal for the campaign, developed by the Google Creative Labs and Chrome team, was to showcase how Clayton used the power of Google’s products (Chrome, Docs, Search and more) to bring his first children’s book to life and share his inspirational message with as many people as possible. After approaching numerous publishers and being turned down, Clayton released An Awesome Book! online for free. Receiving an overwhelming response from around the world, his career was launched.

Working in partnership with Creative Labs, our role at Use All Five was to design and develop a digital version of ‘An Awesome Book!’ for the web, mobile, and tablet devices in 17 languages. The coolest part for us was giving kids around the world the opportunity to enjoy Clayton’s book in their native language–for free!

After several design iterations to optimize the reading experience, we use the latest features of HTML5, JavaScript, and WebGL to demonstrate the power of the modern web while capturing the essence of the book itself. Be sure to check it out!
