coa

coacoa is primarily a print design shoppe. A boutique, if you will... A two person studio, that puts out some fantastic and diverse work; from edgy Moby album cover designs, to more "traditional" Bloomingdale's work. Between the two principals, they appear to be able to crank out any design style required to suit the job at hand. Versatile and deep... what else can you ask of a design team?... More

cypher13

cypher13Self-confident enough to pose in their underwear and savvy enough to still get clients, cypher13 is the "tactical design and brand strategy" studio of three young designers from Boulder, Colorado. Treading a fine line between Jackass(es) and Vice-like pretense... this trio "pants" themselves to separate themselves from the traditional online design crowd... and they somehow pull it off. Bold typography, bright identity design, colorful illustration work, and clean tighty whiteys!... More

Modernista!

ModernistaInstead of building out actual web pages, Modernista skipped right to the web results by building "hot links" directly to google, flikr portfolios, wikipedia descriptions, and facebook pages (no myspace or friendster - they really are forward thinking!). Yes, Modernista! has done the unthinkable for a web firm, although in a way, it's a logical progression for an agency showing they "get" online media and web 2.0. The only drawback to this approach is that these pages, which are maintained on other sites, and are subject to breaking down.... More

Jivaldi Marketing

Jivaldi Marketing"Fluid communications" is the pitch of this San Francisco-based integrated marketing and communications firm. Their site design uses a sparkling blue and flowing water motif to bring home the point that their marketing efforts are lucid and adaptable to many business solutions. Jivaldi serves a variety of clients but is recently flowing into marketing for sports and politics. A nice site which emphasizes the best parts of the products that this firm delivers.... 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

fangohr

fangohrA small Brooklyn-based firm, fangohr combines funny with pragmatic values, meshes German design with New York style and irreverence, balances cash and its corporate soul, and in the process their identity teaches people how to spell their name. A bit light on projects (at this moment), this boutique-style firm is already launching off on the right foot with some pretty big clients. Quality, not quantity, defines their work... and the rich portfolio detail reveals a source of talent beneath the calm exterior—fangohr is best compared to the rumbling power of New York's underground subways....

Red Interactive Agency

Red Interactive AgencyRed Interactive Agency is an agency with a singular focus... to push the interactive technology of today to its limits to craft the most immersive experiences possible for their clients. For now, what this philosophy boils down to is heavily awarded visual advertising campaigns and marketing sites for several clients in the entertainment industry. But if their projects weren't proof enough, this company with two offices (Studio City, CA and Salt Lake, UT) in the USA, has transformed their portfolio site into a showcase for some of their abilities — it's a living chat room with customizable avatars that can run, punch and fly through a small virtual world with other users. Pretty neat suff... practically useless, yes... but a fine demonstration of what this firm can do, and ultimately a solid calling card.... More

Zaum Think

Zaum ThinkZaum Think is a tight little boutique agency with a passion for branding, print design, identity and website design. Their compact portfolio is marked primarily by a large number of print projects, of which many have a beautiful minimal appearance and clean presentation. On a side note, we did post their creative apparel site ZAUM in our webgallery last year—and in the same vein as their apparel boutique, the design studio work has that ephemeral appeal of an unique hand-crafted experience....

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"....
