GUAPO

GUAPOGUAPO is a slick-looking South American portfolio that is designed in a mysterious, minimal black background—it's one of those designs that ultimately aims to make the "firm" appear much larger than it actually is. While the site looks good on the surface, digging inside reveals a rather thin spread of projects (obviously the work of a single designer). However, all is not lost, as the recent futuristic typography, identity and logo design work inside this portfolio is quite strong and well worth checking out. It's all about the potential here....

Born in 1981, Zhiwei is a typographic designer whose beautifully balanced work exhibits a timeless quality—it features a collage and shape-inspired minimal style, with blocky typography that at once seems childish, yet modern. In a sense, it is a youthful mix of Swiss bauhaus design and Chinese calligraphy. Recently two of his works won the merit of 53rd Annual Type Directors Club (New York) and they will be published in Typography 28 and exhibited in six traveling shows, internationally. As a member of The Art Directors Club of New York and Shenzhen Graphic Design Association – has won a number of local and international awards in his professional field, such as The Art Directors Club of New York Awards (NYADC).

And in our opinion, this print and motion video art director can paste up, glue, tack or stencil whatever he wants to his wall. Because this virtual cork-board is truly the complete portfolio experience.

RoppfolioA shapely portfolio of a designer with a singular vision... a logo and identity designer who simply loves shapes. This portfolio takes us back to the simplicity of design and some of the pioneer days, when classic Dutch designers used simple shapes and spaces to create beautiful objects, letters and forms. It's like working with childrens building blocks - simple forms bring out some of the best creativity. And definitely in this portfolio, the logos and identity design from Robert Schouten make a strong, and original impact.... More

Thorsten Konrad

Thorsten KonradAs a general rule, we often look at logos to see how good someone is in design, and their photography to see how bad they are. But defying any such convention, here is a digital designer from Germany who makes no area for his identity design, and actually has some really great photos in his photo area! We're sure that means something good... and sure enough, Torres' professional work mostly encompasses web, motion and print design, for which he has been nominated for many awards. Many of his recent projects are now online, and we hope you enjoy this nicely designed web design portfolio.... More

Conor & David

Conor & DavidOne thing we can say for certain is that Conor is taller than David. Oh yes, and that Conor Nolan and David Wall are designers working on print and interactive projects in Dublin, Ireland... And that they do some nice print and poster work... And also that they are good designers with a flair for minimalism and simplicity... What else can we say? Well, perhaps that you should go see their straightforward design studio portfolio for yourself and (sort of) see who these guys really are.... More

John C. Olsen Portfolio

John C. Olsen PortfolioHere's a young graphic design student hailing from Norway with his new portfolio. John presents us with a very classic and usable web design that showcases his rather small, but professional scope of design work, from posters to identity design, photography and a couple web projects. But as a student, it's not the quantity but the quality, and ultimately, his understanding of typography, color and navigation that makes this design portfolio work exceptionally well. Young students, look and learn!... More

Vertica

VerticaLike many designers from Brazil, the design work in this personal portfolio of Bruno Costa has a very strong visual element, with bold color choices and clean type implementations. We really liked the Flash built right-hand nav that simply allows you to 'mouse-scroll' through projects rather than the standard 'click-scroll'. And similar to other young emerging designers, the interactive and design work is modern feeling, with a little bit of a trendy lean (skulls, Rorschach-style blots and popular type), but we love it. Great stuff inside.... More

Redbloc

RedblocRedbloc is a Communist-era-themed web site for a small interactive studio that produces some very nice original work. The site introduces you to some very ironically cute communist characters and illustrations, framed by detailed 'kartuschki' - those delicate Eastern European floral patterns. However, Redblock is actually based in Singapore, and illustrations aside, specializes in creating very beautiful solutions for web and print design, as found in their portfolio area. A very healthy balance of great work and playfull drawings.... More

Together, the trio of designers (from both firms) join to make moody, yet beautiful ephemeral creations and technically beautiful web sites that evoke a sultry air of sex and fashion. Elegant and clean work.... More

Hello Hikimori

Hello HikimoriHello indeed. And what a welcome! Hello Hikimori is a tight-knit French design studio focusing on "global new media design". As you might expect, this means mostly web, print and motion design, and includes everything from a luxury cosmetics site to designer t-shirts. For a two person studio, HKI pumps out some really amazing print work. But what really struck us is the inspiring Flash-based design of their portfolio. The site establishes a new paradigm for interaction by mimicking a browser, with a right scroller, yet throws in some really sexy details. It's really fun to play with, very sticky, and we predict that this type of design will be copied by many other companies in the future. Truly novel thinking and interaction that sets the bar higher for all portfolio websites to come.... More

Drew Flaherty

Drew FlahertyAn engrossing showcase of photo-illustrated design, wispy graphics, explosive compostions and the random skull, graffiti tag, or rainbow next to a beautiful model. Sure it's trendy, and nothing you haven't really seen before... or is it? On closer inspection, the work of Drew Flaherty goes an extra step, breathing in more detail into each inch of design, and producing a rich tapestry of different styles that together evoke quite a beautiful, mystical quality. Who needs substance when you can have visual satisfaction and a lingering emotion that makes you think, je ne sais quoi? There are nuggets in this mountain of multidiscipliary work... you just have to dig deeper.... More

Philippe Archontakis

Philippe ArchontakisYou would be hard pressed to remove any more items from this clean minimal Flash portfolio presenting branding and web work from this Montreal based Art Director. Clearly, Phillipe's strength lies in designing identities, logos, and collateral for his clients... And you could even say his forte is "the boss", meaning the embossing feature found in many of his business cards. But don't let that overshadow (pun intended) his solid screen designs which display a strong talent for Flash programming, animation, and interface design.... More

Magnificent in its simplicity, this 'two page' Flash portfolio reaveals - one card at a time - a truly impressive breadth of graphic design work.

Ashi Portfolio

Ashi PortfolioCrisp, clean and designed from head-to-toe, Ashi (the illustrator behind Football Heros) gives us one of our favorite overall portfolio designs. The wood-based veneer from this gifted illustrator displays a set of small interactive sketchbooks that we can easily flip through to sample some fantastic illustrations, print work, font design, drawings and more. It's so perfect - it immediately gives us an idea of his talent - it's almost like a package where the wrapping is just as good as the contents... We don't even want to undo the ribbon.... More

Dusan Jelesijevic Portfolio

Dusan Jelesijevic PortfolioA bit sparse on information, a bit bare, but this portfolio of a student from Serbia and Montenegro features some great logo work. Now, while identity design reveals a lot about a designer's style, you can't leave Dusan's site without also sampling his poster designs and his unique illustrations. A very rich, informative portfolio... just not with words, but with great images.... More

Generally, German-based Kalle Kormann conducts a daily search for digital visualisation possibilities in digital environments, network structures, and he investigates ways to mesh up data and squeeze more meaning out of the web.

Tenmetal

TenmetalTenmetal is the teutonic design portfolio of Paul Wagner, independent Art Director (originally born in Vienna). The smooth interface and chic layout make Tenmetal a sturdy soldier in the all's-fair-in-love-and-war-like business of advertising. With classic German efficency, the mix of photo-graphic collage is perfect for the straight shooting presentation... and the monochromatic hues in Paul's designs are the signature style and the smoking barrel in his fully-loaded design chambers....

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

Abiuro

AbiuroOn the surface, Abiuro is simply a personal portfolio of a graphic designer living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. That would be the simple perception. However -- true to his nations' lively aggression -- this body of work reflects a very bold and colorful panoply of print works. We really liked the multiple large portfolio images, which really bring out the quality of the design... quality which would compete at the highest level with the graphic design from any country or firm....
