Cuban Council

Cuban CouncilCC is a small independent design firm composed of 4 partners, and homes in both New York and San Francisco. Their projects all begin with a quirky edge, and their specialty is crafting pixel-tight designs and small, compartmentalized modules. They are the developers behind K10k, but their work is not just limited to this specialized field of "design for other designers"... their projects are fun, friendly and their thoughtful little additions to each site make their work a joy to view and visit....

cypher13

cypher13Self-confident enough to pose in their underwear and savvy enough to still get clients, cypher13 is the "tactical design and brand strategy" studio of three young designers from Boulder, Colorado. Treading a fine line between Jackass(es) and Vice-like pretense... this trio "pants" themselves to separate themselves from the traditional online design crowd... and they somehow pull it off. Bold typography, bright identity design, colorful illustration work, and clean tighty whiteys!... More

Digitaria

In sunny Southern California in 1997, pixels rejoiced as Digitaria burst upon the emerging web market. Deriving their unique name from a star, the diversity of their patrons reflects their universal photographic style. Digitaria’s own site warms up the crowd with a concise introduction to their digital services. An impressive, high-profile client list and quick interface mask the difficulty at locating multimedia samples and an absence of any self-promotional flash, leaving only a slight rasp in what is an otherwise harmonious pixel aria....

Dotology

Dotology created one of the most successful pay-per-view events in Playboy New Media's history. Lest you fear you are too clad to be on their list, note this: they've also done web work for architecture firms and The Animal Legal Defense Fund. This is sparkling clean design with strong, gripping images. Just like Playboy specializes in. Only, um, different.... More

Duffy and Partners

Duffy and PartnersBrand building, packaging and identity work; Minneapolis style. That's what you'll get from Duffy and Partners, a well established and awarded branding firm whose recent work has included rebranding the Islands of Bahamas, as well as identities for Toyota Trucks, and new packaging for Fresca. Clients know what to expect when coming here, but in out opinion, some the styles and designs in the portfolio have a slighty dated feel—like an ad agency that was huge in the 90's but still hasn't fully lost its tendency towards using quirky character illustrations of the era....

Elro

Elro provides cutting edge media content, from the simplest Flash animation to Jurassic Park-style dinosaurs. Well, maybe not that cutting edge -- but Elro's site does emphasize their 360ok design department, which provides 3D models for pretty much any sort of application your heart may desire. Want an interactive automobile model in three dimensions to grace your homepage? They can probably provide it. Want as awesome Flash-based movie promoting Legos? You're in luck, because they've already provided it. It's called Brickolizer, and it's the bees knees -- check it out, along with the rest of their swell portfolio.... More

fangohr

fangohrA small Brooklyn-based firm, fangohr combines funny with pragmatic values, meshes German design with New York style and irreverence, balances cash and its corporate soul, and in the process their identity teaches people how to spell their name. A bit light on projects (at this moment), this boutique-style firm is already launching off on the right foot with some pretty big clients. Quality, not quantity, defines their work... and the rich portfolio detail reveals a source of talent beneath the calm exterior—fangohr is best compared to the rumbling power of New York's underground subways....
