How Edison Are You?

An homage to innovation, and one of the greates innovators of all time. We like to think that if Thomas Edison designed a website, it would have looked something like this.

When Firstborn was asked to create a new interactive experience for the Edison Innovation Foundation, we couldn’t have been more excited. Using 100 of Thomas Edison’s 1000+ patents as both the core of the design and functionality, we created a layout that changes shape for every page of the site.

Users have access to the original papers for each patent as well as the ability to view some of Edison’s first video footage ever taken. The site also features digital abstracts that showcase modern-day devices and inventions inspired by Edison’s original creations.
