Bill McMullen

Bill McMullenWhere popular culture and urban street art meet is where you will find Bill McMullen, a New York design talent who got his start putting together club and show flyers while he was in school in San Diego, California. Here, at his portfolio, you will find an eclectic mix of mashed-up street art, pop culture, apparel and graphic design. Previously designing hip-hop albums at Def Jam's design subsidiary "The Drawing Board" for three years, Bill more recently has been out on his own pursuing other projects like his SwishNYC label and his own art. McMullen's clients include Beastie Boys, Adidas, Criterion Collection and MTV, as well as his own projects like t-shirts, limited edition jewelry, and the vinyl 'Shuttlemax' toy with KidRobot. Of all the "mash-ups," one of our favorites is the shell-top Adidas/AD-AT from Star Wars. Bill is currently (2007) working for Burton and Adidas.... More

BURNKIT

BURNKITA nice creative site for a Candian online media company whose work focuses on professional sites with high-end video integration. We quite liked their overall site which integrates brisk copy with a strong visual slideshow that unspools like a long reel of work. It's also worth checking out their company profile pages that have taken some commonplace ideas (such as the in-house web cam) to the next level. After all, they bill themselves as an "ideas studio", and this site definitely stands on its own as quite a creative accomplishment.... More

To that end, they produce very professional designs, brand expressions and digital narratives. Fantastic looking site with solid portfolio projects.... More

Clement MokWhere would web designers be today without Clement Mok? Certainly a little less rich for experience to draw upon.

Cleo Buro

Cleo BuroTrue or False: Art directors are a dime a dozen? Well, definitely FALSE when you see it from where we are sitting. From things printed, to animated to interactive, we were pleasantly surprised to see the wealth of work in this single designers' portfolio. His selected works show a sure command of multiple medias, and the work itself is bold, clean, professional and comes with just the right touch of tongue-in-cheek playfulness to make this one superbly rounded indy designer... err... art directors portfolio. Impressive.... More

Creative Intelligence

Creative Intelligence  It could never be sufficient in this small space to sum up the cornucopia of invitation design and print work done by Marc Friedland and his recent off-spring; the Creative Intelligence studio. He is literally the King of Invites—a one-of-a-kind, single-minded artist working in the field of invitations, who can boast over 2,000,000 invitations created over 20 years... And we're talking quality AND quantity here. In fact there's a 13 minute video depicting his design history that is actually pretty interesting. Yes, he's a happy fellow, because invitation are his business – and the site exudes that cheery, bright, glitzy, Hollywood feel, with just the right amount of restraint. If you are interested (at all) in print design, event branding and invitations then this is all old news to you... but if you haven't, well then... meet your invitation design royalty.... More

Critical Mass

Critical MassCritical Mass's full-bleed, animated portfolio captures the full-on sizzle of professional portfolio site. Released in early 2008, this site is still making waves in agency circles, and will probably be one of the more emulated portfolio designs before the end of the year... Of course, it helps to have an established list of high-end clients, but it's amazing how far a cool redesign with large scale photos, and some magic Flash pixie dust, can go towards making a firm look hip and desirable (Hint: check out the previous portfolio design). Very slick upgraded site for this USA, UK and Canadian-based interactive firm.... More

Well, we'd have to say that about sums it up in a nutshell. The typographic wizard himself has a site where you can explore a lifetime of showcase studies and keep tabs on the man. Most recently at this re-write, we are eagerly following the release of his latest graphic design book, titled Trek.... More
