Adam&Co.

Adam&Co.Our dear Adam Larson is an award winning designer from Boston, MA, who has worked full-time for Rykodisc, Razorfish, Toth Brand Imaging and Arnold Worldwide. When he left Arnold, where he was a Vice President, Creative Director, in December of 2007, he started up this self-titled design and illustration studio... which nicely translates into "A Damn Company". Sure, that is cute, and all... but it really should be called "Damn Nice Work". Period.... More

Jonathan Yuen

Jonathan YuenAn impressive portfolio, with an immersive, interactive, illustrated interface, from a Malaysian individual who integrates Far-Eastern and Western design influences.

Don't be shy! Just dive into the deep waters of this dynamic portfolio to discover some very distinctive identity designs.... More

IOWA Interactive

IOWA InteractiveContrary to initial impressions, IOWA is actually located in the heart of sea-side California, near Marina Del Rey. They specialize in identity design, DVD/CD-Roms and they seem especially proficient in creating clean, uncluttered web site designs for their clients... usually in Flash... and usually for the advertising agencies, marketing firms and audio designers who are too busy making their own magic to bother with making their own web sites... And who would bother anyway, when you have these pros on your team?... More

Attik

AttikAttik is a top notch full-service design company based in San Francisco with a great looking site, and a strong independent background (they are the designers behind all the famed NoiseLab books). Their current brand image is build around being "brand engineers", which we suppose could mean that they construct their branding work using a very technical, scientific, and methodical approach. But does that mean that they squeeze all of the emotion out of their work? Au contraire! It means they're developed the best methods to squeeze all the emotion and impact to the front of their work.... More

BURNKIT

BURNKITA nice creative site for a Candian online media company whose work focuses on professional sites with high-end video integration. We quite liked their overall site which integrates brisk copy with a strong visual slideshow that unspools like a long reel of work. It's also worth checking out their company profile pages that have taken some commonplace ideas (such as the in-house web cam) to the next level. After all, they bill themselves as an "ideas studio", and this site definitely stands on its own as quite a creative accomplishment.... More

I Am Always Hungry

I Am Always HungryVery refreshing and larger than life, this full-on Flash portfolio is the home of multidiscipliary designer Nessim Higson. Multidisciplinary; that means he rocks at print as much as he does at new media work... and typography, and t-shirts, and posters, and identities, and well... pretty much everything! All the work is really progressive, using hand-drawn fonts and type—some with collage assembly, but some with clean and contemporary designs that are sophisticated, yet bursting with color and composition. We really enjoy this innovative, unique and randomized presentation.... More

Organic

OrganicAs one of the few large firms that survived the iBubble (as we like to call it), Organic has shown how adapting and changing into a full service digital media firm can be successful, given the right environment. Their work these days is focused largely on the auto industry with development of Jeep and Dodge sites coming from their strong relationship with DaimlerChrysler (as of this posting). But with 5 offices in the USA and Canada, Organic is a big presence in the world of online media—and with unique marketing advancements like their "persona rooms" and "experience labs", they continue to lead, not only in experience, but with their branding "experiences"....

Sarkissian Mason

Sarkissian MasonSarkissian Mason is an accomplished full service media agency with three offices across USA. Establised in 1998, SM's big clients (at the moment of this posting) are Mazda and Boeing, for whom they've conceived video-rich, innovative online promotions—featuring some pretty slick technological additions. Additionally their new full-screen video portfolio works pretty well; it's clean and easy to use above all else. In the end, this is a well-awarded and respected firm whose work is constantly pushing technological barriers, so we look forward to featuring some of their sites in our Webgallery in the years to come....
