1. Storming Juno: http://www.stormingjuno.com/
This site is based on a Canadian TV-documentary about the D-day invasion, so from the onset the quality of content was great. But the people behind the project has done an awesome job at repackaging the TV-content to an interactive online format, and paired with some hight quality motion graphics work as well as great design and navigation it all comes together to a beautiful project – which by the way also works great on a technical level with streaming, loading, resizing etc.
