Monsoon

MonsoonMonsoon impresses us mightily. Want to know why? They don't just list their clients and show portfolios of their work. They list their clients, describe the specific challenge each of them offered, explain how they dealt with the challenge, and then reveal the result. So a visit to their site will tell you how they helped Wu Tang Clan's last album go triple platinum. And also how they made the Urban Outfitters online store turn a profit in record time. It's downright inspiring to read how productive they are. We'd like to share our challenges with them any day of any week.... 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

Ignited Minds

This portfolio storefront is actually full of advertising clichés - both visual and verbal – but the quality of work here makes it all a pleasure. The Ignited Minds group says they know their asses from their elbows, and we have to agree. The cyber chicks look lusty and dangerous, the electronics look sleek and dangerous and the men all look like baseball hall-of-famers and, uh, dangerous -– and all in a happy-go-lucky sort of way. Ignited Minds also choose to eschew words like “edgy” and “extreme.” Okay, now we really like these guys.... More

the barbarian group

the barbarian groupOkay, you have to admit that Burger King's Subservient Chicken website is a riot. You know the one—the psuedo live video feed of a guy in a chicken suit who will do anything you want? It's hilarious and brilliant (and got over one billion hits), which is why we are excited to learn that barbarian group was the firm behind it. Their entire modus operandi, while exceedingly professional, is to create unique and surprising online advertising. Visit their website. You'll find links to a host of large projects, and not just games... but Flash specialty marketing, hotsites, and online advertising... but also a whole slew of cool online games. Marketing made fun.... 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

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

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

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

Plinko

PlinkoIt sounds like an 8-bit video game, but it comes out like a mega-pixel monster. Plinko’s style ranges from campy to cartoony, and adjusts perfectly to clients' specs. The 60’s-type interface pops with bright colors and fast loads—it's as alluring as a free game at a video arcade. Fun print design fills out the portfolio nicely, while a limited number of web projects show the range of capability, but don't appear to be the bread and butter.... More

Hello, Logan

A production company founded by Alexei Tylevich and Ben Conrad, Logan adopts the singular pseudonym in a guise similar to the various hip hop/dance music acts they identify and work steadily with. With several top notch music acts (no need to namedrop, ), their roster list is deep but their reel only allows a few tasty samples...with their flash patterns and 80’s flair. Just like the music biz they work with.... More

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

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
