New Work from Moth Collective

It’s been quite a productive year for Moth Collective, and the London based trio is here again with more great work for a great cause!

Continuing the body of work they started with the Global Canopy Programme, Forest 500 paints the picture of our ever-changing world and what we can do to help reduce the growing problem of deforestation our planet faces.

In a similarly good spirited project, the Moths also released The Climate Reality Project early this week.

What excites me about The Climate Reality Project, aside from its good nature, is its successful use of animation in an interactive way. This is by no means an original idea, but I feel the execution is wonderful.

You can experience it for yourself here:

With the use of Moth’s charming work, this parralax scrolling site takes the user through what they call the “world’s easiest decision.”

Below you can find some stills, gifs and the credits for the two projects:
