Adobe Studio

Adobe StudioThe new Adobe Studio boasts a sleek, vibrant design, and promises to become a worthy resource as a flexible online collaboration environment for creative professionals. The site is quite appealing, providing a breath of fresh air and space amidst tight icon and navigation development. The information and direction of the site is clear, and one can even follow the track of design by hillman curtis inc. in a type of showcase that focuses on iterations in page and icon design. Although this site was removed within a couple years, it is now replaced with the Adobe Design Center, a type of gallery of articles and creative processes.... 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

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

Baltika7

We certainly have mixed emotions about this beer promotion site... For a non-Slavic brewery to brashly market a beer to kids using under the guise of "New-Russian-Style" is an insulting swipe at underpriveleged Russian youth living in difficult times... All in one site, they manage to callously poke fun of the subjects of squalor, poverty, homelessless and punk culture, and then try to hide it all under the dangerous branding-theme of "cool" irreverence. It's an unfortunate marketing scheme, appealing to no one except perhaps the least compassionate alchoholic looking for a cheap beer, and the butt of the joke enforcing the stereotype of poor, alchohlic, Russian youth. The one saving grace of this site is the complicated Cockroach Race which has some novel gaming features. But besides that, the photos, branding and marketing slant of this site are questionable to us, and perhaps a result of marketing gone awry. Maybe... More

Beautiful Freak

Beautiful FreakI've always personally considered myself somewhat of a Naked Freak... meaning I have no tatoos or piercings... and that's just been my preference. But Beautiful Freak has a beautiful website that showcases a style of tatooing that I've always thought is the only way to do tatoos... And that is with a personalized style and custom fit. Seriously, what's the point of needling indelible ink into your skin if it's the same artwork that Bob from Nowheresville has... and he got it before you did? None... Therefore, if you are into a style of tribal, abstract or even geometric, but don't want to copy Bob, then Beautiful Freak is the place to experiment with your custom fit and personalized pattern. The site is so nice, it even made me consider getting a piercing... but of course, it would tastefully complement my new custom tatoo.... More

Center for Digital Amnesia

Center for Digital AmnesiaWhat do you get when you a real Microsoft product with a fake disease? The Center for Digital Amnesia Awareness! Featuring Colby Chester (you might recognize him as the Bad Guy from Dukes of Hazard, Episode #4) and a lemur in a ballet leotard. This real online ad for Microsoft Home Servers makes you take a second look - it's certainly not the usual line-up of dry corporate facts and photos, but rather a video and actor driven, tongue-in-cheek parody of advertising. Corny? Yes! Effective? Absolutely.... More

Coca-Cola BlaK

Coca-Cola BlaKAn online branding experience for the new coffee-injected Coke that invites the user to three beautiful virtual rooms representing three drinking moments of a Coca-ColaBlaK (after lunch, at work and at home). Once inside, visitors can access a couple mini-games related to the French tagline "L'esprit Vif?" (translation: "The Sharp Mind"). They give the opportunity to the visitor to take a Coca-ColaBlaK break and accept a mental, uplifting challenge. Overall, it's a very pretty promo for this new Coke drink, showcasing design, bold color-choices and the new, hip Coke packaging more than anything else. An effervescent endeavour for a visually-driven promotional vehicle (written in French).... More

D&G Time

D&G Time The new D&G Time web site for watches features a truly advanced navigaton concept, beautiful design and original sound. Designed and developed by Koinema, the site operates like clockwork precision, allowing you to either narrow down these luxury wrist watches by color, type and styling, or simply spin the wheel and let D&G pick a random watch for you to view. Built entirely in Flash, the circular navigation is actually a powerful sorting device... yet unlike a straight database list, it is more like a Rolodex (not a Rolex) of watches that is fun to use and explore....
