Playb3yond

Playb3yondIt's not often when the future of a major music and entertainment company like Sony rests on the release of a single product. So when you debut two new technologies in one gaming system and sell it for a $400 loss in hopes of making billions down the road... Yup! Sounds like the perfect reason to blow even more money on an extravagant, animated web advertisement - complete with Captain Kirk voice overs! Sadly, at the end of 15 minutes, the site is ultimately an expensive, 3-D marketing brochure with lots of glitz and no interactive substance (somehow, Shatner specialties). However, it also makes us salivate for the very latest in high-definition gaming and graphics. Sony is drawing deep into its brand loyalty cachet and they are betting it all on this console's success. It shows in this high-end video production, but where's the web2.0 love?... More

Kids Ro Foundation branding

Kids Ro Foundation brandingAs some people may know Rosie O'Donnell recently returned to TV (today) as a host of The View. You may not know that since being off TV, Rosie has put her energy into a bunch of charities for kids... Why is that interesting to web designers? Well, because behind the scenes FDTDesign has crunch released 3 sites with an all new Rosie branding, custom font and logos... and the following 3 URLs show this great branding design spread through 3 different sites. First: Rosie's Shop (http://shop.rosie.com/), Second: For All Kids Foundation (http://www.forallkids.org/), and finally, Third: Rosie's Broadway Kids (http://www.rosiesbroadwaykids.org/). We love the bright colors, big photo images and the scratchy style utilized through all 3 sites in a coordinated branding effort. Great results.... 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

Test Drive Unlimited

Test Drive UnlimitedIn a continuing sign of the explosion of video gaming to come, Atari rises from the ashes to release a first-of-its-kind Massivly Multiplayer Online racing game for the XBOX360 platform. Test Drive Unlimited is the signature release for the 360 (much as Halo was for the first generation XBOX) which is virtually set on 1000 miles of 3D roads on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Test Drive brings many unprecedented online features to the racing genre and is the first title to fully showcase the true power of the new triple-processor system. If you haven't been keeping up with video games since the days of Spy Hunter then you'll be astounded by the graphics available for home systems which undoubtedly rival the realism of 3D created for blockbuster animation movies. We're very happy that Atari has released a slick, flashy site that describes all of the features, and provides fresh... More

Teatr Muzyczny

Teatr Muzyczny (Musical Theater)A very dark and distressed promotional site for a musical theater company in Poland. This site shows how it really takes a number of elements coming together in harmony to make a great online presentation. We were very impressed with the full screen "slicing" Flash transitions, minimal use of colors, grainy diffused photos and solid type treatments. Even if you don't understand Polish, you can have a good experience just from flipping through these large page designs using a very easy to understand navigation. Dark and dramatic!... More

Zaum

Zaum Portable FashionZaum is a small fashion laboratory that creates progressive purses, bags and accessories for both your home and travel excursions. Each purse or bag is handmade with a bright palette of colors that accentuates their belief that everyone should enjoy what they wear and add color to the world at the same time. The site is crisp and functional, with an easily understood navigation and great product shots... and because of the limited green color employed as the site background, each colorful product they display has twice as much visual power on the screen. An overall tight production.... 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

Motorazr Dolce & Gabbana

Motorazr Dolce & GabbanaA pure promotional showcase, this site presents the new Dolce & Gabbana co-branded Motorola Razor V3i phone. Done up in a kind of gilded-orange tone with DG logos, the phone also comes with a few similarly tricked-out gold accessories. Overall, the site is fairly straight-forward - obviously geared to the youth market - and although you can't stop the background music, it has a certain flair that complements the design of the phone. Written in Italian and created for the Italian market.... More

In-Synch Challenge

In-Synch ChallengeOwning a home or a small business can be a risky proposition. To help identity and avoid those risks, Fallon & B-Reel helped insurance company Travelers create "The In-Synch Challenge," an interactive experience - complete with fully 3D rendered environments and composited green screen footage of actual actors - that puts ones safety awareness IQ to the test. Sure, the insurance companies want to put a little fear into you, but the real fear should come from checking out this demo and asking yourself as a web design company... Damn, how the hell could one possibly compete with the depth of this production? Sure, it's a touch dry, but from a development standpoint, it has every possible feature one can cram into a website design - film, motion, 3-D, voice-overs, acting, plus interaction with a bit of game-play. And from a business view, it must be seen as a total... More
