Eat: The Story of Food, a delicious collaboration between NeoPangea and National Geographic Channel still tantalizing taste buds at NatGeoEat.com, was just awarded a heaping helping of WIN by the prestigious 19th Annual Webby Award People’s Voice competition! After surviving the pressure cooker of public voting, our team brought home the award for “Best Use of Animation or Motion Graphics.”
Cooked up as an interactive companion to National Geographic Channel’s six-part miniseries, Eat: The Story of Food, this playful feast for the eyes takes foodies along on a visual narrative journey through the ages via desktops and tablets. Each episode is accompanied by a veritable smorgasbord of content that makes stomachs rumble by highlighting important milestones in food history. From the first cave dwellers learning how to cook meat with fire to bioengineering the lab-grown beef patty of tomorrow, each topic is explored through multiple eras.
Take another look at the site and pay attention to the sizzle of the steak, the frothing of the beer, and the many other mouth-watering animations that garnish these enticing pages, and you’ll see why Eat: The Story of Food was voted a Webby People’s Voice winner. We’re beyond grateful for the public’s support!
