BBC Earth is ringing in its 50th birthday by dropping Life Is, an interactive site chalk full of epic nature images, videos and stories from the people behind the mindblowing DVD series Planet Earth and Life. The site's not up yet, but judging from the screenshots, it's going to be equally amazing.
With access to BBC's incredible archive of images and video, site designers Fantasy Interactive created a colorful, organic interface that puts the rich visual content front-and-center. Coolhunting compares the Life Is experience to "thumbing through old issues of National Geographic—but thoroughly updated for the digital age." We're down with that.
