Blonk Raphael

Blonk RaphaelWe're using an inefficient and crappy American typewriter, and are unable to add the necessary umulet -- you know, those two little dots -- over the e in Raphael's name. Still, we'd never have thought of enlarging the name so that this top half of the letter and the umulet itself turn into an exclaiming smiley-style face. That's the kind of simple and creative design you'll find at this branding firm... or as they put it: 'fresh ideas' that lead to 'winning deals'.... More

ZAAZ

ZAAZZAAZ has a lot of (dare we say it) pizaaz. They provide platform-based web solutions that range from consumer brands to interfaces for all sorts of business utilities. Where they really shine is in their custom-made interfaces for everything from traffic analysis to Washington Mutual Bank. Where would we all be without ZAAZ? Using boring, old-fashioned ATMs, that's where.... More

studio aka

studio akaConstruction paper cutouts and ‘primitive’ pen marks run rampant at the studio aka site. Some nice illustrations, but after perusing the sample pages, we have to say, um, "been there, done that." Sure, they've won awards, but if the London based production company doesn’t inject a little variety (and reach out from the UK), their days may be numbered. That being said, they can probably use the ‘singular style’ style for identity recognition, aka "branding."... More

Trollback and Company

Trollback and CompanyEmmy-winning title sequences, as well as some of the most effective print work we’ve seen, move through T + Co.’s very fine website. The Nike Butterfly ad does make us want to buy the shoes. More impressively, however, The Lifetime Channel branding makes us wish we actually watched. Conclusion: this company works miracles....

Dry

DryDry puts it up front: they're addicted to consumerism, and they make ads, as well as short films, that make people want to buy things. Their campaigns are specifically marketed towards teenagers, so their site features clever graphic designs, flashy images, and sexy women in jeans. Their site is actually hard to navigate – we're still not sure what's what – but at least it looks cool, which is probably all that matters to teenagers.... More

If Your Mind Was A Room

The very name of If Your Mind Was A Room suggests constraints, four walls, boundaries, etc. This UK-based firm, however, is the antithesis of that concept. As they so eloquently put it, choosing them for your advertising campaign is like walking through a dull grey market in a rainbow colored suit -- i.e. they'll give you a branded identity in the advertising world that's different from anyone else, while still maintaining the efficiency and effectiveness of the very best campaigns. They'll also provide you with furniture. We're not kidding. Check out their site.... More

Firstborn

firstbornFirstborn does really lovely, effective work that isn't limited to websites—they reach all the way to the relatively antique advertising method known as printing brochures. You know, the kind of thing that uses paper? Check out their website for more info on who they are, what they do, why you'd want to work with them, etc. You'll join an impressive, eclectic bunch: Bacardi, Calvin Klein, Madonna, Columbia University. Sounds like a great party.... More

Segura Inc.

Segura Inc.This is where you'd turn if you want those very accomplished Segura folks to cook you up a print campaign, custom font or corporate identity. The famed Chicago based firm has an uncommonly deep portfolio comprising scores and scores of pages of work—which makes it a great adventure to explore. Their contemporary style has been the envy of many clients, and the list is varied and quite deep... from print campaigns to comic book covers, TV titles and logos... Segura does it all.... More

Seven Worldwide

Seven Worldwide Seven's up! Oh, and include Dr. Pepper, Kellogg's, and a slew of other big clients in Seven's lofty corporate roster. Having recently expanded to Asian and the Hong Kong area, a full global conquest appears to be within Seven's radar. However, some of their portfolio pieces are so difficult to navigate, we longed for a detailed map. The overly simplistic construction and lack of flash at the firm's web site suggest some more work might be explored in-house.... More

Landor

"Building blocks" might sum up the construction of Landor’s expansive Internet portfolio. The square format dominates their visuals, but detailed resources and a wealth of information show a definitive “outside the box” mentality. With several corporate industries handled by several continental offices, look for a Landor office opening soon near you.... More
