Acura MDX

Acura MDX (Canada)A fairly fun site for Acura (Canada) that provides far more than a fair approximation of what this SUV feels like. In fact, beyond providing intimate marketing details of every feature of this automobile, it enacts several Flash powered 3-D dramatizations of futuristic special effects, like for instance, the hybrid hovercraft/suspension - that you really have to see for yourself. What more can we say? Go for it!... More

alta bikes

alta bikesA great sales tool for alta fixed-gear bikes, with a very nice yarn. Hilarious photo illustrations in a very short, sweet, and funny presentation... and besides the bikes are just sharp. The 'Thread behind the bike is that it's a joint project beween graphic designers (Bleed), furniture designers (Norway Says), product designers (Frost Produkt) and advertisers (Shnel&Melnychuck). Perfect.... More

Alternativ

Alternativ - furniture designA new Flash website in an austere style for Belgian furniture and partioning designer Alternativ. We liked how the site has a high attention to detail that is lacking in similar sites in this genre. And apparently, not only is the design very clean, minimal and beautiful, it is also functional and fully indexable by search engines. Ultimately, even though we felt the Flash transitions were on the slow side, the overall presentation makes the product photography appear artful – and distinctive.... 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

Audi-TT

Audi-TTThe culmination of websites that are supporting the launch of the Audi-TT Coupe. The site demonstrates a great grid-based web design. Multiple medias like streaming video, DHTML and integrated audio provide visitors with an opportunity to peruse through a rich description of the creative paths taken in the construction of this car. The structured nature of the metagrid boxes couples control and flexibility and an elaborately expanding interface control utilizes pictoral navigation to maintain a theme of beauty & exploration. All this while light design contrasts highlight the subtle silver tones and sophisticated beauty of the Coupe.... More

Automobili Lamborghini

Automobili LamborghiniThe official Lamborghini website is the ultimate purist site for an Italian sports car lover. It does exactly what an exotic sports cars design company should do... And that's the opposite of thrilling you with special car games or cooler-than-thou navigation... Lamborghini righteously showcases their entire auto history with full-screen photographs, specs and measurments of some of the sickest cards known to man - from the very first model to today's ultra refined speed machines. Done up in the simplest black, with a totally minimal navigation yet a healthy heap of attitude, you may have to look twice to realize it's a full Flash site. All the effects and transitions are played down as to reduce their interference with the goods... And for any sports car purist, 'the goods' are the sexy, aggresive and mind-blowing designs of the Lamborghini autos themselves.... More

Best Made Company

Best Made CompanyExactly how all websites may look one day - this is certainly the way we'd love to make websites; minimalist, white, with light splashes of color is what it's all about (for us). Trim copy, big product images, an appearance of high quality for this bespoke outdoor camping products shop. What's not to love? Neat looking & really simple.... More

Clase-a

Clase-aClase-A was developed for advertising the Mercedes - Benz A Class in 1997. 15 days after releasing the web site the car had it's own technical bugs. "The client gave us total freedom" Since the year of it's design the site has been regaled as a beautiful product despite the delivery extention on the car. All graphics were done using Freehand, Photoshop and After Effects.... More


Core 77

Core 77The old school industrial design magazine from the Pratt Design School in NYC. Core was changed in 1999, but still features articles and student projects with a clean delivery. Designed at Pratt University in NYC, originally by industrial design students, this site was a portal for showcasing student works and exhibits. Core77 is now (Nov.2000) more focused on promoting web design and ID together as a more universal graphic design portal and resource, but it has lost much of the interesting interface design that first made it a standout project....

Design and the Elastic Mind - MoMA

Design and the Elastic Mind - MoMADesign and the Elastic Mind explores the reciprocal relationship between science and design in the contemporary world by bringing together design objects and concepts that marry the most advanced scientific research with attentive consideration of human limitations, habits, and aspirations. The exhibition highlights designers’ ability to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and history—changes that demand or reflect major adjustments in human behavior—and translate them into objects that people can actually understand and use. This Web site presents over three hundred of these works, including fifty projects that are not featured in the gallery exhibition. Originally launched in February of 2008.... More

Electrolux

Electrolux.comAh, we can feel the effervescent cleaning power at work on our brains already... With this sky-blue background and gravity-defying water droplets, this single page gateway site for Electrolux – a Swedish appliance company – oozes with a fresh, sensual appeal. Unfortunately, the killer drawback to this page is that every single link takes you to another pop-up Electrolux site... Which wouldn't be so bad if the designs were more similar. It's a great gateway splash page, but ultimately this page is 99% functionally irrelevant. It's a testament to the difficulty (and failure) of unifying a multitude of branded global sites under one design. We can only hope, perhaps, that the design of this one page wonder will eventually be "filtered-down" to all the sub-country sites. In the meantime, enjoy the bubbles, but just don't click on anything!... More

Flymo

FlymoThe British invention of the hovercraft was the inspiration for Swedish lawnmower inventor Karl Dahlman to develop a flying lawnmower and this site presents the product line with a lean but bold design impact. This is a well branded, brightly colored and amusing site that remains clean and clutter free, but sprinkled with demonstrative gif builds. An overall appealling product design and impressive online delivery of it's capabilities and range of models.... More
