The Creative Mind

Adobe - The Creative MindIt's been a little while since we've seen a hot Adobe web advertisement like this... The visually eye-blowing site features the work of several design studios and image makers, spread across a universe of three exquisitely rendered, illustrated, and animated planets. The result is a free-flowing, interactive animated experience that shows off the new capabilities of Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 within the abstract framework of a designer's mental universe. Not to be missed.... More

Interact 10 Ways

Interact 10 Ways | Getty ImagesIn a semi-promotional experimental collaboration, Getty Images teams up with 5 renown designers and agencies (Sumona, The Barbarian Group, Tomato, Less Rain and Great Works) to create 10 exploratory interactive pieces. The firms conceptualized and developed some interesting hybrids of playful interaction and visual experimentations that focus on and around photographs from Getty's huge archive of stock imagery. And each module has its own interesting aspects, but the two by Sumona (the only designer without an established web presence) - especially one called "information" - are just not to be missed....

EnBW Spamrecycler

EnBW SpamrecyclerHow many do you get each day? As you can expect, we get hundreds. But there's hope! In one of the more curious experimental designs we've seen in recent years, the Spam Recycler turns your data waste into art. We're not sure how it works - sounds like Star Trek technology - but somehow the emails you submit get shredded and broken down into little particles and then are used to create virtual graphics and small personal pieces that you can print out or use as a desktop background. Brilliant!... More

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

Dodge Magazine

Dodge MagazineNot much of an actual 'web' design, but rather a series of digital flat screens. Dodge, Issue #1, is a print-like collaboration of several young and upencoming digital artists who created a two-tone series of flat pixel designs that are fun, and just nice to examine. At the end, you'll also find links to all the contributing artists' sites, which is useful in and of itself.... More

VerbWe like it hard, and this is the kind of site that ultimately gets us hard as steel. Why? It's the navigation, stupid. Or rather... it's smart navigation. Take a spin around Verb to see how it's done: notice how Verb calculates your current position and sends you links to relevant information from other areas. Hot hot hot.... More

Warp Records

Warp RecordsWarp records is the label site for a great many new electronic and independent-style artists. The design features a tight, dark style of flat, 'blocky' colors meant in many cases to imitate 3-D or a 3-D version of equalizers. The overall appearance can be a bit sparse at times, but allows for efficient updates from the database as this is a comprehensive site for many artists. Programmed by: Kleber.... More
