Electric Guest

View Project

Relative newcomers Electric Guest were set to release their debut album Mondo in Spring 2012. To build excitement for the new release and give fans something better to do than fill out their email address, we built them a puzzle.

By breaking up the Greco Roman statues that made up the album cover, we created a simple puzzle that fans could complete to unlock an exclusive stream of Electric Guest tunes. Drag n’ drop is the name of the game, and once the parts are in place new music appears.

Music is delivered via the SoundCloud API and the drag and drop was created with a bit of Javascript. Lightweight and easy to interact with, a simple UI / UX was designed to let fans get to the music as fast as possible.
