Kindness and Humility

Kindness and HumilityIn the work and not work of Chris Erickson, we don't find a lot not to love... (pause, absorb). Yes, his work is really nice. And we totally dig the compressed minimalist Flash UI—it gives us a very easy framework from which to view a showcase of his print, identity, packaging and industrial design talents. Set into a grey background, the web and print projects really pop, yet they all still fit snugly on a laptop screen. Now, getting back to the work, it's important that you also don't sleep on the "not work" (play) which unveils a compassionate and down-to-earth side to this talented multimedia designer. Great stuff there, not here.... 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.

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

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.... 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'.... 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

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

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).... More
