Teatr Muzyczny

Teatr Muzyczny (Musical Theater)A very dark and distressed promotional site for a musical theater company in Poland. This site shows how it really takes a number of elements coming together in harmony to make a great online presentation. We were very impressed with the full screen "slicing" Flash transitions, minimal use of colors, grainy diffused photos and solid type treatments. Even if you don't understand Polish, you can have a good experience just from flipping through these large page designs using a very easy to understand navigation. Dark and dramatic!... More

Entreprises & Construction Durable

Entreprises & Construction DurableThis captivating design for a green website on sustainable construction is crafted with movement and unique transitions to diametrically oppose grey, static architecture websites. We absolutely love the way each page zooms out to show the entire page layout, then transitions you smoothly back to reading distance. Written entirely in French, even if you can't understand everything, you'll appreciate the flowing beauty of the Flash transitions and the intuitive user interface design. Fantastic design!... More

Jonathan Schloss

Jonathan SchlossWhat's great about this site is all you have to do is punch in the web address, load it up and let it play. On the other hand, if you want you can drill down to each project and zoom into every image in the portfolio. The architectural work contains some huge cultural and civic projects (like Radio City Hall, for one), as well as some small, but very great residential renovations. Smart Flash scripting gives users an in-depth view of every image... it really feels like you are sitting at a big table sifting through high-resolution photographs with a big magnifying glass. Ultimately the little details (and there are many) in the design of this portfolio really make it shine. Truly wonderful.... More

Firehouse735 Condominium

Like a good old-fashioned 'block' party (but minus the grill), this web site uses lots of squares of information in a colorful design, while using Flash to elegantly warp and transform the grid on each different page. With a limited amount of content, the site does a good job at balancing the building’s rich past (built in 1880) and the neighborhood’s soulful character with the sleek and modern residences inside. The design team used subdued, matte colors to showcase both the sunlit interior shots and the charming photos of Firehouse 735 as it once was in past times to appeal to an up-and-coming neighborhood in Brooklyn, Prospect Heights. Quite nice.... More

Spavia

SpaviaEvery once in a while, we come across a site or portfolio that truly breaks new ground in interaction and interface design... Of course, you don't need to read any farther to know what you can only experience by visiting the site. But let's just fill in the blanks; This is an art and industrial design portfolio website for the works of a creative duo from Hungary. Spavia (both sections) contains artworks and projects in ceramics and porcelain, silicate design products, paintings, photograms and photography. Kudos go out to these two who have obviously contemplated the medium (Flash) and made their portfolio very easy to use and understand, while also developing a highly original creation. (Added HINT: Use intuitive keyboard buttons to "walk" through instead of clicking.)... More

Nicole Foran

A tapestry of flowers frames this beautiful and simple one page wonder -- a portfolio site for a painter and printmaker. The work inside has a breath of personality, and coveys a particular understanding of the visual world. What that message is, of course if up to the viewer... but we couldn't ask for a better online casing for this artists' unique work. Take the time to stop and smell the flowers.... More

Painting for a cause

Using various printing methods and drawing techniques on found prints, Ornithology creates an interesting juxtaposition between old drawings and new drawing styles - which in the end makes the prints look old again ... or like they were run over by a utility truck at a garage sale (*not* a bad thing!). Well, WE liked them, however, if you're not a fan of the art, at least the web pages are quite clear and beautiful.... More

office for subversive architecture

Something different... Not necessarily designed to the most detailed of specs, this site appears to be barely glued together... but it's that bit of patchwork that enhances beauty and gives it some interesting visual flavor.... More
