A quirky archive/disposable time capsule of life in Cape Town at the turn of the century.
Macs no longer came with a 1.44Mb disk drive, spelling the end of analogue/digital disk based technology. Disks had virtually become disposable and this seemed like a perfect media hack waiting to happen. And so Capsule was born.
Distributed free on floppy disk each issue was also playfully packaged according to the theme.
Other than it being an unusual take on our environment on a strange medium, it was a major feat to squeeze an extremely large amount of information and interactivity on 1.44MB
The magazine instantly became a cult hit, and launched my new agency, Radarboy, as a major player in South Africa. By awards - radarboy was only the second digital agency in South Africa, and the smallest agency ever, to feature in the country's top 10 agencies. The first being my previous agency Tinderbox - where I earned a host of awards including 3 Loerie's (one of which was the first-ever Grand Prix for a digital work for Thinking Multimedia), a SPADA gold and a One Show special mention for my work.
Capsule was awarded two Gold Loeries, an Invision Gold (to put in persepective Real Player was also a Gold winner), a Construction Award and a SPADA Gold.
