BBQ Box

In a world full of corporate branding and identity, here's an guy walking the walk just for the heck of it. Eric Cheung (aka BBQ Wing) is a graphic designer, and he's created this site because. . . hey, he wanted to. It's an expression of thoughts and ideas, all in some pretty awesome Flash animations. Think "sharing," not "selling." The site is populated with little animated alter egos of the artist to guide you around. We feel good about this.... More

BC Design

We have to salute BC Design for their clean, straightforward approach. They spell out their anti-bureaucratic, process-oriented misson with a neat little graph, and then offer up their hotshot portfolio. It ranges from a '50s-style pulp packaging style, to some cool, mod designs for Urban Outfitters. Here's a test: how stylish can you make the word "DRINK" look on a beer glass?... More

Beehive

Since 1994, the buzz about Beehive is the work produced is as sweet as honey, and just as alluring...so much so that upcoming nest.tv has become another hive of symbiotic activity. Their silhouette style pops with the bright inquisitive colors that would attract both person and inspecting insects alike. Interactions include their silhouette profile page and a sophisticated reel that belies the cutting edge of the company. Expect the reverberations of this heightened hive to increase to swarming levels when unleashed the ad market.... More

Big Spaceship

Big SpaceshipRemember the days when films just had posters and maybe a trailer or two? Big Spaceship was one of the firms to change that. These guys are behind the websites of many of the major Hollywood films you've seen recently. We love visiting websites for movies—especially when the website is better than the movie itself. (Catwoman, we're looking your way.) But that's not where the Big Spaceship stops. They've also produced cutting edge Flash sites for Nike and Coca-Cola... well, you ask; "who hasn't?" That's true... but at least they're not one-trick-Hollywood-ponys.... More

Blast Radius

Blast RadiusTheir online portfolio presentation is super-saturated with dizzying, high altitude images, and the best corporate product jargon money can conjure. This is high-powered design service for the high-powered.

Blind

Are you blind? If so, my apologies (and how are you reading this?) If not, treat your eyes to a delectable visual feast. Their unseen influence is wielded in TV commercials (Nike’s “Rocketman”) as well as music videos (Jet’s astonishing “Be My Girl”). Providing a peek into their studio might relay a glimmer of inspiration for a visionary firm.... More

coa

coacoa is primarily a print design shoppe. A boutique, if you will... A two person studio, that puts out some fantastic and diverse work; from edgy Moby album cover designs, to more "traditional" Bloomingdale's work. Between the two principals, they appear to be able to crank out any design style required to suit the job at hand. Versatile and deep... what else can you ask of a design team?... More

Coudal

Headed by Jim Coudal, these guys have got it going on. They have a relaxed, MoveableType-based website that promotes creativity over commerce. Their projects cover the fields of television, print, interactive and brand development -- and they like to walk around the city of Florence for inspiration. We can dig it. To top it off, they like Macs, and they designed the logo and uniforms for the Houston Astros!... 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
