Notts Art

Notts ArtA sweet and clean little Flash detection for a local arts project, 'notts' provides info on contemporary artworks situated across Nottinghamshire, England. We liked the colors and overhead location maps especially, but found readability slightly impaired - probably due to the use of Vag Rounded as copy text. Overall, notts art is a tasty, informative treat.... More

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....

Simian

SimianSimian's fifth incarnation titled 'Journey Inwards' presents 7 semi-interactive movies that tend to induce a dreamlike state of mind. They offer a peek into the consciousness of an artist strangely enveloped in a veil of peacefulness who travels the twisted paths between brilliance, insanity and emotional distress. Take your time with these: each semi-interactive story unfolds at about 5 minutes each, with your help... hence "semi"-interactive.... More


RMX

RMXMany 're-mix' projects - the sort where a sequence of designers create variations of, improvements upon or additions to an initial digital design - have come and gone... however, this is the best one we know of that still rocks on. RMX is a tight collaboration of eight Brisbane designers, launched from a desire to produce exciting visual work in an unpredictable way - generating visual works that, in the final viewing, are "as surprising to the creators as they are to the viewer"....

123KLAN

123KLANBusting out the fresh funky style - this is street art taken to the vector dimension. This release marks the creation of a new height in online graffiti where the styles born in the streets of NYC are merged with a sharp graphic eye, tight computer skills and the love of Gundam. 123KLAN is on online crew hailing from Lille, France. Reprazent ma brothahs & sistahs.... More

Memoirs

Designer's WorkoutMemoirs is an experimental web presentation that mainly focuses on interface design and visual art communication. Memoirs is a visual narrative presentation on the Hiroshima bombing during World War II which attempts to give graphic representation to survivors' experience and witness accounts of the event. This was a major design research project for BA study in the year 2000.... More

Praystation

PraystationEvolving ever since we can remember, the Praystation of 1999-2000 is a leader in demonstrating the highest levels of complexity in Flash tek and design interactions. From digital paintbrushes, to Replicating Snowflakes, to Building a Tsunami, Praystation promises the widest and wildest array of Flash Tek experiments online to date - at best guess, more than 50. And as both the artist and the teacher at the same time - Pray delivers eye-fetching content, while more recently he provides code from the experiements for others to learn from - then throw in occational updates of the authors' exploits with a smart interface that leads your through all of the modules and you have one of the diamond superstars of Flash Tek....

BAM

BAMThe Brooklyn Academy of Music is a performance venue for dramatic stage shows in Brooklyn, NYC. BAM offers a very hip and modern feeling site which elegantly showcases their shows and offerings. BAM is also the home of BAM Rose Cinemas - Brooklyn's only movie house dedicated to first-run independent and foreign film and repertory programming. The use of tonal greys and horizontal banding when mixed with big, clean san-serif type and sparesly colored imagery makes for finely branded and modern feel, appealing to a newer and younger audience range of theater-goers....

Design Museum

Design MuseumThe ultra-clean site of the Designmuseum in London, England is available in either Flash or Regular HTML. Designmuseum Flash features a great teaser gallery of pieces in their collection and on show through their Gallery3(cubed). Some of the best parts of the site, aside from the great industrial designs showcased within, are the miniture loading animations between pages. The design style is also effectively translated into the navigational elements to create a cohesive content delivery vehicle.... More
