120 Seconds

Sleeping GiantsA place for people in Canada who are experimenting in the digital medium to show off what they're creating: byte-size entertainment including animation, shorts, games, music, whatever. The site design, by Dotaku International, breaks up the edges nicely creating a feel of an entity in space rather than a program with holes to fill. The backend uses Cold Fusion. This is a CBC initiative to create unique space to showcase Canadian talents.... More

800*600

800*600This site is so simple it bothers me; essentially built in two colors with one highlight color, 800*600 is the site for an upcoming design annual being released from Hungary. Although the layered graphics appear like something one would imagine designed for China's coming Olympics bid, if it is any hint towards the design style being used in the book, then it should be well worth acquiring....

AIGA Design Archives

AIGA Design ArchivesThe ultimate collection of awarded designs, the AIGA Archives are the recorded catalog of annual juried selections in design excellence. Featuring 3,269 hand-picked entries (at this posting) from the '365' annuals dating back to 1994 (issue no. 15), the entire site is a graphic designer's goldmine. The best part is the Flash-built interactive navigation which allows you to browse and cross-reference entries by publication date and category—to reduce 3,269 down to 24 specific entries in a matter of three-four clicks... and even lets your lightbox your favorites. (It's only really missing the best selections in interactive design, but that's why you are here, right?) Pretty... no, very damn cool.... More

Arvorecer

ArvorecerWonderfully spirited design of contrasts and subtle details. This site integrates nature, openness, typography and information design all into one very attractive package.
