Joshua Distler

Joshua DistlerThis super understated HTML portfolio betrays little of the actual work that went into the selected print and interactive projects. It doesn't scream "Wow. Look at me!", or "Hey, I'm a great web designer!". Nope. None of that. Partly that's because the designers' strength is in print, packaging and book designs. Partly because it's easy to update and shows photos of his work in a really accessible way. And partly because of the Joshaua's obvious love of minimalism. The end result is that we looked through almost all of Joshua's contemporary design works - including his contributions on none other than Apple's iPod and G5 award winning packaging design. Great stuff.... More

Julien Moulin

Julien MoulinCurrently a freelance designer working on both sides of the Atlantic, Julien Moulin has a solid history in design, working on newmedia projects including websites, CDRoms and animations for broadcast, but also in print and environmental design for more than 12 years (at this posting). His latest portfolio site incarnation is a superb showcase of his illustrative design nature, as it sparkles within a classic layout and brims with brightly colored web projects, identity design and animations....

Julius Tarng

Julius TarngReally sharp portfolio of work from an upcoming industrial and interactive designer. Really great and simple site layout shows just enough to tease, and comes loaded heavy with project details if you want more. From sketches, to an amazing student-based mobile platform design, this is a true talent with a portfolio that will not disappoint.... More

Kiss Me I'm Polish

Kiss Me I'm PolishPolish girls are hot. So we just can't resist this boutique-size strategy and design firm that specializes in branding for web and print. Great portfolio layout with just the right amount of confidence, and color in the cheeks. Started in 2003 by Agnieszka Gasparska (born in Warsaw) and located in NYC, this great little endeavor that makes us long for a romantic European getaway... but, until then, I guess we'll have to settle for a kiss....

Kyle Meyer

Kyle MeyerKudos to Mr. Kyle Meyer, who is a young and upcoming web designer with a promising future in the industry. His work (and play) projects have an outstanding level of refinement and polish to them. The work is clean, minimal and well organized, and the typography is simple and effective. There's not really much else to desire, is there?... More

LAB25

LAB25An independent designer with a nice non-scrolling portfolio of work. Edgy and urban, with a distressed tone, David Torres' work is mostly related to designs for a skateboard shop called CCS. We liked the stencil-style interface.... More

M Studio

M StudioM Studio is a small Flash specialty studio that develops engaging, and award winning user-experiences. Their specialty is working with visual firms to achieve the best implementation of technology to create compelling interactive media. This award winning site design was realized by MSLK, and the programming was created in-house (of course). One of the best all-around, minimalist portfolio sites we've seen in years!... More

MAP

DesignbyMapYou know you've stumbled onto something special when you sense a light breeze tickling your screen. Very sensuous, slightly feminine, and with a clearly Eastern influence, MAP (previously DesignUnion, est. 2002) is a relatively new boutique with impressive and sophisticated clients. Paul Lee is the man; he majored in Rhetoric at Berkeley (who knew that would prove so marketable?), with an MFA from Yale. A bonus: he is fluent in Korean. And more than fluent in spare and lovely design. Go see. You'll feel rinsed.... More

Mark Yeo

Mark YeoLike a young Samson in his prime, apparently this young art directors true strength comes directly from his finely coiffed hair. And his clients can relate, because most of his advertising and editorial designs are made for the fashion and high-end luxury fields. His art and layouts of advertising pages have been in the pages of numerous magazines, such as Esquire, Zest, Good Housekeeping and while in Singapore, he conceptualized, designed and art directed covers for Elle Magazine, Cleo and Woman's Weekly. So don't mess with Mark's "do", lest you spoil the perfect balance of art and design.... More

Michael Dick

Michael DickDeeply dark and inviting, Mike's website like his work straddles the line between creative design and front-end development. What we liked very much about this portfolio is the transparency of the process. As a designer specializing in interface design, he reveals all of his previous site iterations, and endears us through his openness, devotion and immersion in the materials of his work. Good job....

Milky Elephant

Milky ElephantMilky Elephant is a professional collective of three unique design artists based in New York. This collective consists of Karl Ackermann, Eun-Ha Paek and Mumbleboy (a.k.a. Kinya Hanada), who together make installations, games, illustrations, music videos, animated series, and artistically inspired designs. They work on an eclectic variety of funky projects spanning from toy design to viral interactive e-postcards that you've probably helped spread. Very quirky, often miniture and cute, it seems like they have a niche around being silly and youthful, which also shows in the variety of mediums they like to craft their projects (everything from coin purses to TV interstitials). Also check out The Milky Shop, the cool pink retro nav (that we really like) and the sites of the three design artists.... More

Mogollon

MogollonMogollon is collection of graphic design, production design, branding, illustration and motion graphics by a fresh, young duo who met while working on a film documentary for PS1/MoMa. They produce some interesting work spanning a range of media that has a youthful appeal and is still in a process of evolving. They even had a steaming series of music accessible from their site dubbed "Mogollon FM" which you can just click and play. These two are true kids of the multimedia age, getting their fingers messy in any way that they are able.... More
