2014 Highlights - The Wows

 

This year we’ve said Oh Wow! approximately (okay, exactly) 45 times – each Friday to be specific, in our weekly round-up of cooool. For part 4 of our 2014 HIGHLIGHTS we thought it would be fun to revisit all of our weekly Oh Wows, make a selection of the stand out work, and compile it into one super scrollable mash-up of visuals and sounds for you to enjoy. From the simple and striking to the bizarre, bold and outlandish – these are The Wows of 2014.
