Diphthong ID (old site)

From Singapore comes Diphthong from co-founders Max Hancock and Wesley Grubbs. Lots of refreshing samples and silky flowing interfaces. For you verbal geeks, a diphthong is, in English, “a complex speech sound or glide that begins with one vowel and gradually changes to another vowel within the same syllable”. Like the "ng" in "dipthong." Ya see. A unique and yet necessary combo to the language. Great name for this firm. Apt. (Oh, looky. Another dipthong, there.)

Recently, this firm has dissolved, and these two partners (still friends) are pursuing new individual projects.
