SoCity

SoCitySoCity is the design studio of Jesse Raker, based in NYC... as might be guessed by the range of urban and street-inspired styles. As with many print based designers, we see the portfolio is made with simple HTML and is very bare. But as a print portfolio, there's a distinct advantage to this technique: In a matter of 30 seconds, we can view the entire range of this designers' work whereas a web designer promoting his work may force you to click 3 times to see each project (sometimes it makes you truly wonder!). Anyway, the point is just this; that Jesse's work is not constrained to one style, rather, he explores a range of hip, fun, colorful and edgy styles within a larger genre of "urban design".... More

Joshua Distler

Joshua DistlerThis super understated HTML portfolio betrays little of the actual work that went into the selected print and interactive projects. It doesn't scream "Wow. Look at me!", or "Hey, I'm a great web designer!". Nope. None of that. Partly that's because the designers' strength is in print, packaging and book designs. Partly because it's easy to update and shows photos of his work in a really accessible way. And partly because of the Joshaua's obvious love of minimalism. The end result is that we looked through almost all of Joshua's contemporary design works - including his contributions on none other than Apple's iPod and G5 award winning packaging design. Great stuff.... More

Departures

DeparturesNo, they don't have an all-singing-all-dancing website... And that's exactly why we can't stop looking through their portfolio. Although you won't find many words in this fresh minimal portfolio, you will find intelligent, minimal print design with a simple concepts and elegant typography. From title sequences to annual reports, mailers to booklets and branding, the refinement of this work is second to none. Nice color choices too!... More

WSDIA WeShouldDoItAll

WSDIA WeShouldDoItAllTaking their name in part from a quote by a famous science fiction writer, WSDIA (We Should Do It All) is a Brooklyn, New York-based graphic, interactive, and architecture multi-disciplinary design studio. Sticking with that simple theme of diversity, WSDIA designs, develops and mediates interactive, print, motion and architecture projects for clients in a wide array of professions - such as the arts, architecture, advertising, fashion, and media. Truly one to watch, their work has very crisp, and futuristic egde - from the typography choices to the themes and clients, each project rings out with a clean, bright and youthful appeal. Therefore, it's no surprise that WSDIA was recently named to The Art Director’s Club, 'Young Guns 5' for 2006. The future is certainly bright for this talented collective and company who are ready to take on whatever comes their way.... More

pi6 communication design

pi6 communication designPerhaps alluding to "pi" the Greek letter meaning "periphery", as in the periphery of a circle, pi6 is essentially a two-three person studio located in Athens, Greece, which was apparently brought together by a blessing of good fortune. The partners all had jobs to work on design for the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics. In fact, between the two main partners (from Germany) and 3rd associate designer, it seems they single handedly designed almost all of the 2004 Olympic Games posters, logos, and collateral - even the offical medal awards podiums. Strong in identity design, this classic design firm have already won some awards, and if the winning designs found inside are any indication, the oracle says they will be heading back to the podium for more... look for pi6 design in the future across Europe and the US....

brutalgiftland

brutalgiftlandAn interesting portfolio site for illustrator Mark Shepherd. His work is a mix of collage-like graphic pieces, that includes illustration, graphic design and also audio, with his project, "cold_elf" sounds. The portfolio has a nice woodsy kitsch backdrop, yet in a contrast with (or perhaps because of) his somewhat rural design style and tastes, it is fused with sensible interactive elements, buttons and navigation. For us, everything about the site is warm, tasteful and inviting and the style lends itself well to the fusion of work found inside. (We even liked the entry page solution, and did not hate the pop-up in this instance of the site design). A pleasure to visit and explore.... More

Liquid

LiquidLiquid is a design agency that embodies a relaxed, soft attitude with a beautifully light portfolio. It's quite appealing, and we love the little fishes, swimming around, but we were a bit challenged by the side-scrolling presentation... contrary to the soothing atmosphere, we just were not quite comfortable leaving our browser in mid-scroll. Also, some of the HTML links are just too light to be read. But beyond that, the work is outstanding. They have accomplished wonders in print and design for books, and the website design and corporate work is not too shabby either! For book covers to brochures, magazines and more, Liquid is the place to dive in a take a swim. Just don't scare the fishes, or get the pages wet.... More

Stay Honest

Stay HonestHonestly, Honest is at the forefront of the new archetype in advertising and design, blending the subversive and the ideal solution all in one. And the easy going folks at Honest cover it all. They've got their print ads and web sites, which are all fine and good, but what is really exciting are their short films and commercials, commissioned by the likes of Diesel, Nike, the band The Gorillaz, and more. What happens when graphic design sensibilities are transposed into short works of cinema? Try downloading a few, and we think you'll agree that the results are awesome. Stay true to Honest, and you'll be surprised with the outcome.... More
