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.... Read more

Vectorform

VectorformComing at design from the technical side of development is certainly an invaluable segment of the design market. And while many firms profess to merge design and technology, Vectorform is a true interactive media and application development firm who actually build and promote the tools that define their client’s business. At Vectorform, their philosophy is simple: they define and maintain the harmony between technology and design. But don't just take our word for it... the results speak for themseves in their impressive case studies - which unlike anything you'd expect from a traditional "back-end" company - play like full multimedia presentations....

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... Read more

Noise 13

Noise 13 is a web site for a relatively small design studio based in San Francisco. We liked the amicable feel of the site and firm that bills itself as a "one-stop-shop" for unique logo and stationary design, websites, email marketing, print projects, t-shirts and more. Great use of grid, Flash technology and visual imagery in this standards-based site that uses XML to populate the portfolio and other content areas.... Read more

OrdinaryKids

OrdinaryKidsTake an ordinary group of talented kids, each with their own 'ordinary' specialty in web design, put them together on a number of diverse projects, and you will get something beyond ordinary... Perhaps something even greater than that... but before you leap to conclusions, check out the work inside. It may not appear very flashy on the outside (at first), but don't be fooled by their minimalist approach. Each project has its own sophisticated touch that takes it further away from normal, into that realm of the 'OK', and perhaps even one day, 'Pretty Good'.... Read more

Knowawall Design

Knowawall puts together some very tight sites integrated with technical aspects to create some very refined digital online experiences. Mostly specializing in portfolio sites for professional photographers and architects, their navigation schemes are always slightly tweaked, because Knowawall puts renewed effort, energy and knowledge into each web site they build... so you always get something original when you cruise through their portfolio. Mostly built in Flash, they often build in content management into their sites, or integrate e-commerce, going the extra mile, so there is always more in their sites than meets the eye... Geez. Just like little know-it-alls.... Read more

Orange32

Orange32Fuse a company website with a bold gothic typeface, animated Flash and rock 'n' roll music, and suddenly you're talking attitude and a hip online presence. But that's not all, as Orange32 completes some very dynamic work for clients ranging from upscale corporate to edgy product ads. Their strengths lie in print, identity and illustration, but their dynamic attitude is filtering into their Flash-based web projects with much success. Their creative juices are brimming, and the work to come should be interesting to watch (and hear).... Read more

ZAAZ

ZAAZZAAZ has a lot of (dare we say it) pizaaz. They provide platform-based web solutions that range from consumer brands to interfaces for all sorts of business utilities. Where they really shine is in their custom-made interfaces for everything from traffic analysis to Washington Mutual Bank. Where would we all be without ZAAZ? Using boring, old-fashioned ATMs, that's where.... Read more

Ignited Minds

This portfolio storefront is actually full of advertising clichés - both visual and verbal – but the quality of work here makes it all a pleasure. The Ignited Minds group says they know their asses from their elbows, and we have to agree. The cyber chicks look lusty and dangerous, the electronics look sleek and dangerous and the men all look like baseball hall-of-famers and, uh, dangerous -– and all in a happy-go-lucky sort of way. Ignited Minds also choose to eschew words like “edgy” and “extreme.” Okay, now we really like these guys.... Read more

Also

Also"Also" was formed when an animator, an illustrator and a graphic designer joined forces, so their services cover the spectrum from interactive Flash website to animated commercials to some hip and trendy print ads. They made their site available not only in hi-tech Flash, but also in a more basic and quick-loading HTML format. Access for all! And both versions are equally attractive and showcase the talents at this firm very well. Check it all out, at whichever speed you prefer.... Read more

Ultra 16

Ultra 16Ultra 16 is an interactive multimedia company with offices in NYC and San Francisco. Their strategy is: "Communicate, Relate, Succeed," and underneath each of those headings one can find a specific plan. Their rules are so well honed, they've painted them on the walls in their hallways. At least that's what the pictures on their site suggest. Then again, they're surely proficient in Photoshop, so they could be pulling one over on us.... Read more
