Sesame L’Encyclopedie

HAVAS Entertainment (Paris)

The Sesame L’Encyclopedie project was to be the final project created by Guy Casaril and his Brisbane based design and development team. The team had produced a series of five award winning digital projects over a two year period. Unfortunately Guy passed away part way through the creation of Sesame L’Encyclopedie. The project was completed by a combination of individuals from the Australian and French teams working in Paris for a period of three months.

Sesame L’Encyclopedie combined thousands of maps, illustrations and video/audio media elements with factual descriptions into a unique digital encyclopedia of human knowledge and activities.

A highlight from a design perspective was the creation of a set of timelines around art history. Key figures and artwork was used to illustrate the changing genres.
