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

Departement Design Interactif

Departement Design InteractifBuilt up of a three-man team, and located in Montreal Canada, studio DDI seems to be a synergistic team of talents whose work is clean, creative, colorful and captivating. Their work tends to bleed towards motion and video when possible, but their talents are rooted in incorporating all new media into cohesive, collaborative online concoctions. Quite nice!... 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

Organic

OrganicAs one of the few large firms that survived the iBubble (as we like to call it), Organic has shown how adapting and changing into a full service digital media firm can be successful, given the right environment. Their work these days is focused largely on the auto industry with development of Jeep and Dodge sites coming from their strong relationship with DaimlerChrysler (as of this posting). But with 5 offices in the USA and Canada, Organic is a big presence in the world of online media—and with unique marketing advancements like their "persona rooms" and "experience labs", they continue to lead, not only in experience, but with their branding "experiences"....

Paprika

PaprikaPaprika is a Canadian graphic design firm with a strong reputation in creating brand identites, packaging and print collateral. On their site, as in their stationary, we see hints of a toned down identity which involves the repetition of words, forming a light minimal texture and suggestion of a bar code design. Their technique is modern, yet marketable, meaning that it is both refined, yet approachable – perfect for high-end and luxury clients – and inside these pages you'll find a portfolio of print projects whose appearance is quite professional....

Beside

BesideBeside (perhaps "B-side"?) is the brave and colorful portfolio of Canadian Flash developer Bram Timmer. His portfolio has that cool dark digital feel, with nice gritty accents, and some bright popping colors. His client list of Canadian firms runs pretty deep, and his design work runs the gambit from clean, corporate white sophistication, to expressive color-rich abstract photo-illustration. Very nice, indeed.... More

Gregory Durrell

Gregory DurrellIn a simple linear "book" format (on a website aptly named Xrtions) Gregory leads us through his outstanding graphic design projects created from 2004-2006. The typography, posters and print designs comprise a collection of client, personal and some school projects. A lot of the more social/political work comes from working as a graphic designer for a non-profit charity in Toronto called War Child Canada. A designer who is both socially responsible and extremely talented... well, watch out world!... More

Marian Bantjes

Marian BantjesA typographer and illustrator extraordinaire, Marian's work harks back to the ornamental styles of illustrated manuscripts and hand-crafted type. Reminiscent of the days when crafts-persons really went through the painstaking details of, well, creating painstaking details! Marian combines great line work and flourishes with an exacting eye for type forms to make unique and invaluable typography and art.... More

A Brand Above

A Brand AboveA Brand Above is a multi-disciplinary advertising company thats creates some very refined solutions with graphic design, art and creative direction. Based in Vancouver, Canada, A Brand Above has a real strength in crafting outstanding identity and logo designs, which on screen look like finished museum pieces. They also have an ongoing relationship with Wired Magazine illustrating and designing editorial spreads. Cap that off with some nice custom typography design, and you have a firm that really appeals to our inner design child. Jealous we are!... More

Aegis

AegisRed is the color of passion. And in the website for a branding design firm based in Toronto, Aegis shows us a passion for simplicity and sophistication with a minimal selection of colors and a clearly defined philosophy on design. This passion and depth of experience in design filters down to their work, which largely involves branding and the creation of communications for leading international clients. We really liked the large photo samples in their case-studies which is driven more by copy than by an array of images (the images form the background). It's a nice twist, and a fresh way to deliver the message of this strong branding design company.... More
