Ben teamed up with the BBC and Lonely Planet to present A Year of Adventures.
Year of Adventures - Ben Fogle
In a natural partnership, British adventurer and television presenter Ben Fogle teamed up with Lonely Planet to create a five-part series called ‘A Year of Adventures’. The series followed Ben as he took on challenges in some of the most beautiful (and far flung) locations in the world.
With Ben’s natural energy and desire to always push himself to the limit, it was essential the website felt as dynamic and exciting as the man himself.

Photography and parallax
The images used on the website were key in telling the story of Ben’s adventures around the globe. We made the most of them by introducing additional movement through parallax transitions, which seamlessly provided interludes between the ‘episode’ content.
