Island Creek Oyster Bar

Island Creek Oyster BarEating out is never so much fun as when you travel and dine, exploring new locations and sea-side destinations. So, whether you are near to this Boston locale, or dropping in from points West, you get the feel here of a fast, and easy, "on-to-go" sort of location. Fundamental to this experience is the idea is that they bring the restaurant to the farmer. Neat concept. Neat execution. Great experience.... 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. We were most impressed with the skillful blend and transitional elements that nimbly mingle the textures from the "earth" to "sky" portions of the design.... More

IBM - Smarter Planet

IBM - Smarter PlanetGood old IBM leverages its branding power and smarts to try to make the planet a better (and smarter) place to work, live and do business. If you are looking for new grid designs and graphs, you'll find clean pages, graphs-a-plenty, and a very snazzy set of colorful icons... And that's just what you see on the surface. It's all about the ideas and how they can help make things better for all of us.... More

Ask Nature

Ask NatureNature already has all the best answers to all of our major design problems. So why not ask nature? Evolution has already developed and created the perfect designs, and all we have to do was emulate mother natures' wonders to improve our lives. In this time of green consciousness, a Darwinian approach to a green future will harness the biology of nature (biomimetics) to help us innovate naturally and efficiently. Find out more at this great portal design, sponsored by Autodesk.... More

Once Upon a School

Once Upon a SchoolThere's just not enough saints, givers and teachers in this world... but you can help make a difference. It's a time of service and sharing, and Dave Eggers has recognized it – and provided us with a platform for making a difference in our local schools; by teaching and leading kids as a volunteer. Simply dream up a project, make it happen, and tell your story to inspire countless others.... More

Lose Your Excuse

Lose Your Excuse"What's your excuse?" poses the - by now rhetorical - environmental question to the 8-12 "tween" market. It encourages them to save energy at home with a 10-step energy action plan, by way of flash modules and mini-games – which might only be briefly fun for anyone over 12 years old. However, the message of healing the planet, taught to our latest generation of conscious consumers, sponsored by a government agency, is priceless. This site initiates a journey for compassionate, educated kids to learn AND probably teach their parents about positive energy saving habits.... More

Members Project

Members ProjectGorgeous sites are even nicer when they have a purpose. American Express funds $2.5 Million to 5 user-selected projects addressing everything from environmental issues to education, community development to health. Meaningful content drives great design, as shown in the clear and crisp layout of this altruistic project. But just as important as the site design, is the variety of brilliant ideas [link] giving hope to people from all walks of life, no matter what country or culture.... More

Eden Organix

Eden OrganixThe first site in our new web design category of "green" design, Eden is a shop that carries over 20 different hand-picked brands of eco-friendly cosmetics and beauty products. The site design strikes the right notes with some very neutral toned, earthy, color choices. It also features a harmonic design system using an inverse bracket playing off of their logotype that runs through the site. Spacious typographic lock-ups and ample white space round out the entire experience, which ultimately leaves shoppers feeling good about making healthy choices.... More

THE ECO ZOO

THE ECO ZOOIf you wanna see something fantastic, look to nature... but if you are sitting behind a computer, you should settle for the second best thing. Explore this green-themed web site built with Papervision 3D engine in Flash. Be sure to check out the pop-up books, and the unique animals in this amazing site which will actually teach you a thing or two about how to live green(er).

the greencurve + alittlebettergasstation

the greencurve + alittlebettergasstation.comThis posting is actually two sites by BP—two sites which share the same branding, color scheme and purpose; to indroduce us to "greener" ways we can live our lives in conjuntion with gasoline usage. BP is savvy when it comes to grasping the idea of environmental impact, and has used it extensively in crafting their brand. In site one, (thegreencurve.com - see main link) we learn how well we are doing personally on the "greencurve" of environmental impact. In site two, alittlebettergasstation.com, we explore some new forward-thinking industrial design by BP in the form of their futuristic and eco-friendly gas station. This page contains a stand-alone Flash piece that uses animated, "cartoony" characters reminicent of very early TV ads for gas stations with a dash of Looney Tunes thrown in. Hopefully, this kind of thinking, and eco-friendly branding becomes more of a trend moving into the future.... More

nau

nauDoes the world need another sports clothing company? Absolutely—when that company such as nau sets forth with a new business paradigm... a company that puts design and functionality first in both their business philosophy and the development of their products. With the goal in mind to create something other than a business with "profit" as their bottom line, nau is unique. It is a company looking to profit from the ways they can share and sustain beauty, and positively change the conditions of conventional commerce. When companies take action like this, we all profit! Simply an amazing grid-based design, fabulous functionality, photography, and excellent interface design.... More
