I Miss Kong Studios
Published on for Cloud Four
When I was starting out as a web designer, few experiences inspired me as much as Gorillaz’ official website in the early-to-mid aughts, Kong Studios.
At a time when most websites were long scrolls of text or cramped two-dimensional rectangles, Kong Studios was an interactive recreation of the band’s home and studio space. Instead of navigating a menu, you explored various rooms and corridors. If you were curious enough to venture beyond the typical discography, tour dates and promotional content, you might uncover easter eggs, animations, outtakes, B-sides or even a game.
