Method

MethodWhen you're doing work for the premiere graphic design/multimedia software companies, you gotta have the skills to push their software to the limits... so it's no surprise that Method has top of their class portfolio that includes a variety of big names in addition to Adobe and Macromedia. Their other clients range from the artistic (Lincoln Film Society) to the corporate (Merril Lynch), and they cover everything from website design and branding to printing and user research. One-stop shopping, right here.... More

R/GA

R/GAThese guys have been playing the digital branding game since 1992. They use words like "segmentation," "methodology," and (our favorite) "solutions," and talk about things like "work flow" and "implementation"... but what it all boils down to is that they are a very technology savvy firm. They have a winning roster of corporate websites and advertising campaigns, for clients ranging from IBM to Bed, Bath And Beyond. If you dig a little deeper into their site, you'll learn that before they got into online material, they pioneered motion graphic technology for films like Superman and Alien. Currently, their showcase work (and largest exclusive client) is the interactive Nike+ site for runners.... More

Less Rain

Less RainThe online home of Less Rain is energized by all the rich media you could name. It's a powerhouse of design prototypes, which is especially impressive from such a small company. Less Rain has a particular ethos: "making a few design elements work more intelligently, unusually, and organically." Their portfolio is a rich compendium of web works for clients like Red Bull and Hennessy, but offline works include the world's largest victory monument for the Nike Scorpion Football Event. This firm can do anything. Anything.... More

Juxt Interactive

Juxt InteractiveIn this version of Juxt Interactive's site, or of their many refined Flash projects, it's obvious there is a meticulous attention to detail—and, hence, design. Which is probably why, year-after-year, we list a hefty postion of their portfolio in our webdesign gallery. Whether you seek web design or Juxt's individual brand of art, you'll find high quality, awarded, fun Flash design and interactive promotions. Great stuff. Again: Great. Stuff.... More

MAP

DesignbyMapYou know you've stumbled onto something special when you sense a light breeze tickling your screen. Very sensuous, slightly feminine, and with a clearly Eastern influence, MAP (previously DesignUnion, est. 2002) is a relatively new boutique with impressive and sophisticated clients. Paul Lee is the man; he majored in Rhetoric at Berkeley (who knew that would prove so marketable?), with an MFA from Yale. A bonus: he is fluent in Korean. And more than fluent in spare and lovely design. Go see. You'll feel rinsed.... More

2Advanced Studios

2Advanced StudiosMore fun than quality time with the PS2! 2Advanced has their demographic in the cross-hairs with an interface straight from the sci-fi channel. We don’t care if they’re trekkies or techies (or a highly advanced hybrid of the two) – the work shines like C3PO’s butt. They say they employ the world’s finest, web, motion and graphics folks - well, we believe them – just about every byte on the site proves it. This latest verision (V.5) is no exception, and exemplifies the company's most complex blend of user aesthetics and backend technology to date. Their redesign includes internationalization features, XML based data caching system, Dynamic Deep Linking, and entirely dynamic content. Big words that mean this Flash site works as good as it looks... It's just as rich and complex as the futuristic background illustrations that embellish each area. Forget that it takes us 5-6 clicks to locate a... More

Big Spaceship

Big SpaceshipRemember the days when films just had posters and maybe a trailer or two? Big Spaceship was one of the firms to change that. These guys are behind the websites of many of the major Hollywood films you've seen recently. We love visiting websites for movies—especially when the website is better than the movie itself. (Catwoman, we're looking your way.) But that's not where the Big Spaceship stops. They've also produced cutting edge Flash sites for Nike and Coca-Cola... well, you ask; "who hasn't?" That's true... but at least they're not one-trick-Hollywood-ponys.... More

Flamaster2

Flamaster2A flamboyant Flash designer and Flash motion specialist, Piotr (Peter) Lupinski, has provided a (temporary) one page online showcase of his rather full portfolio of professional looking work. In a sense, it appears as a type of "Fibonacci spiral" timeline, although no dates are provided; just the number of days taken to complete each project. Piotr has set the bar high for any forth-coming iterations and we're sure to follow and support any new works from this artist in the future. Flamaster2 (Poland).... More

the barbarian group

the barbarian groupOkay, you have to admit that Burger King's Subservient Chicken website is a riot. You know the one—the psuedo live video feed of a guy in a chicken suit who will do anything you want? It's hilarious and brilliant (and got over one billion hits), which is why we are excited to learn that barbarian group was the firm behind it. Their entire modus operandi, while exceedingly professional, is to create unique and surprising online advertising. Visit their website. You'll find links to a host of large projects, and not just games... but Flash specialty marketing, hotsites, and online advertising... but also a whole slew of cool online games. Marketing made fun.... More

Futurefarmers

FuturefarmersFuturefarmers is cultivating your consciousness with a bevy of animated critters, wry humor, and a brand that has propelled founder Amy Franceschini to designer stardom. It has also captured such clients as Adobe, The New York Times, Swatch, and a creative cache of hip San Francisco galleries. The web site sports an impressive corporate portfolio and an array of visual stimuli, "for-fun" projects, and web dramas. The latter range from "Deface the President" to a Kosovo Elf shoot 'em up game. The firm's fascinating book, Harvest, is available for purchase, too. These folks never sleep... and we want some o' what they use!... More
