RegioBank Summer Tour

Dutch financial institution RegioBank will be touring the Netherlands this summer, visiting various community-oriented events. Design studio Vandejong Amsterdam created a fun but simple map-based website to publicize the tour, pairing colorful illustrations and simple animation (mouse over the fish!) with clean and effective typography.

The choice of Benton Sans for a supporting typeface works well with the simple graphic style of the illustrations, achieving a friendly overall feeling without being cheesy or garish.

The site uses a combination of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Webtype to achieve what probably would have been done with Flash in previous years. Because the typography is live text, it can be easily indexed by search engines and translated to other languages while maintaining the same design – both significant advantages over a Flash implementation.
