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

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.

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

Letterpool

LetterpoolLetterpool is a brilliant community art project built around uncovering exceptional typography found throughout the streets of Liverpool. Powered by the public, this interactive exhibit calls upon users to send in their own photographs of found type either modern or dating back in history and the winning 100 entries will be published into a hardback book. A fantastic idea, executed with exceptional design... and perhaps a project that could be expanded to many different cities.... More

The Royal Mint - New Designs

The Royal Mint - New DesignsWhat if one 26 year old designer could change the way you look at history? This is the real story of how Matthew Dent, a professional graphic designer, won a competition to redesign the coins of the entire British nation. He has literally stamped his mark on the future, by redesigning the past. Truly, if you needed proof, here's how one person with some original thinking can affect millions of people. Inspiring to say the least.... More

Open Doors Student Site

Open Doors Student SiteAs wary as we are to post anything on Digitalthread with a religious slant (Note: you may notice two things we almost never post about is religion and alcohol-related products), we are fans of this rather simple tri-tone (actually it's 5-toned) design of this youth-oriented Christian site. It used to be that many of these organizations had horrible design standards, but over the last 5 years they have poured more money into design, recognizing the benefits of graphics in attracting a younger audience. Does this slicker design package breed a skeptical distrust among other "non-affiliates"? Naturally, it might, but who is to say these "firms" cannot engage in smart marketing of their own message and "products"? It leads to all sorts of prickly questions around the branding of religions that this editor cannot hope to undertake in this forum, nor is it prudent to do so... but do feel free... More

Happy New Year!

A neat little Flash application whipped up so you can send out a New Years greeting in one of 69 languages. From Serbian slavic to Indian sanskrit... Vatican City latin to Vietnamese... Reach out to an International friend and say Hello!... More

Happy New Year!

Robotmania

RobotmaniaThis site will be of special interest to anyone fascinated by the dreamy age of space travel and technology, and of course to collectors and fans of 50s and 60s tin toys. The amount of creativity and artistic talent that went into crafting this collection of space-themed toys and robots is truly amazing—certainly these unique pieces define a bygone era not to be repeated again. And the Flash site by Alberto Cerriteno is a perfect blend of modern, yet rustic design... and even includes a retro game of Space Invaders.... More

More isometric angles and bizarre pixel illustrations than you can shake a magic wand at, EbOY truly is the king of all pixel designers. And this is the palace of all of their art... from the eCity Pixorama to the pixel portraits, this is an online cornucopia of digital goodness. 'Nuff said.... More

Digital Egypt

Digital EgyptHad you never been to Egypt proper and you plan to, but haven't had the chance yet... or even if you were turned away at the border (we were!) and you can only get your fix by seeing the Giza pyramids on TV, then this one page wonder of a web site will virtually whisk you away to the big pyramids of Egypt in ancient Egyptian style. Everything you wanted to see in one trip is presented in nicely made QTVR panoramas and photos, framed by hieroglyphics, and it even comes complete with tourists! Only covering one area at this time, Digital Egypt is a great themed design and amateur visual resource for taking a peek at Giza, Egypt.... More

Usta Usta Theater

Usta Usta TheaterUsta Usta, or Mouth to Mouth, is the promotional site for a experimental theatre in Poland that puts on a trio of interactive shows that blend video, sound and performance art in a live theater environment. Partly an introduction - and an invitation to get lost in the material - the site is an immersive series of mini interactive Flash pieces that together act as a mysterious patchwork of concepts from the three main theater pieces. An interesting approach, a-la Hi-Res!, that works well for this avant garde theater group.... 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

Milarepa

Milarepa (Link Down)A compact and window-driven site for the Milarepa Tibetan action fund. The organization urges people to vocalize their opposition to the physical and spiritual occupation of Tibetan culture. The design uses the windows effectively with a minimum of confusion and it's also foolproof to technical disturbances. Great photographs of Tibet and simple color combinations grace every page throughout this pure pop-up site.... More

HEL13 displays new designs and tricky additions in each issue so exploring each archive will often bring a nice surprise amidst a tasty range of graphics. They often redesign the entire look and feel of the magazine when appropriate, so explore and discover. HEL13 stopped producing new issues at #13, and the site is no longer in service.... More
