Letterpool

LetterpoolLetterpool is a brilliant community art project built around uncovering exceptional typography found throughout the streets of Liverpool. Powered by the public, this interactive exhibit calls upon users to send in their own photographs of found type either modern or dating back in history and the winning 100 entries will be published into a hardback book.

Universe

Universe - by Jonathan HarrisUniverse is an unique new interactive method to explore the news and stories of our planet. Universe was inspired by questions like: if we could draw new constellations in our night sky today, what would those be? What are our great stories? What are our great journeys? Who are our heroes and heroines? Universe presents an interactive night sky, composed of thousands of twinkling stars, which then connect to form constellations. Each of these constellations has a specific counterpart in the physical world—a story, a person, a quote, an image, a company, a nation, a mythic theme. Any constellation can be clicked, making it the center of the universe, and causing all other stars to enter its orbit. Universe is infinitely large, and each person's path through it will be different. For an explanation of how it works, read "Stages". For a longer discussion of the ideas behind the piece,... More

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

ESPN TV

ESPN TV When the Internet arrived, and TV stations started fumbling to put content on websites, for a moment there, it almost seemed like they forgot they already owned the second-most engaging medium around (film being the first). So it's about time one station understands that if I'm going to visit the web site of a TV channel, its pretty much essential for me to quickly be able to find out what's going to be coming next on the TV! This ESPN TV site was developed to roll all ESPN promotional TV sites under a consistent platform... and with 9 different channels, sport fanatics have been thirsting for a slick little site to quickly find out what is coming up on TV in the next 24 hours and beyond. Plus, with a strong navigation and flawless UI, all your favorite sports shows are rarely more than 2-3 clicks away. But that's not... More

M!nd

M!ndUsing the tagline, "Cultural ammunition for better business", M!nd is an experimental news filtering tool and idea refueling station created by a branding company called Modernista!. M!nd provides the ammunition they need to help draw out emerging patterns from events occuring around the world. It acts as a type of news filter coupled with cultural introspection that helps digest the overflow of information individuals are bombarded with on a daily basis. Literally M!nd is what Modernista! uses along with their clients to help them "mind" their business by making sense of the world around them. It's a fascinating application, and since anyone can use it, you may find yourself returning to it on more than one occasion (even though it seems like updates have mostly stopped since 2003). The M!nd has no limits. Since this posting, we discovered M!nd was actually the very first incarnation of the Modernista! website. And... More
