Manhattan Loft Corporation

Manhattan Loft CorporationContrary to its name, MLC operates out of London, England. As one of Britain's most innovative property companies, this site helps set them apart from the standard fare expected of a conventional property development firm. Think more art, design and architecture, rather than concrete, bricks and mortar.... More

The Script

The ScriptAn excellent site for the UK band, The Script. Nice grid-based 3-column design, and we just love the contrast of the extra large animated header, and change in depth perception. Great feel, good use of space, friendly and fun.... More

Alexandra Hager Photographer

Alexandra Hager PhotographerThe portfolio of a contemporary Viennese photographer Alexandra Hager. Her portraiture is a bizarre mix of Victorian era clothing, haunting settings, and some modern stylistic mash-ups. Often times, her subjects appear surreal and doll-like in their frozen stillness. Great editorial, and advertising work for European clients. Nice simple Flash site.... More

Nonesuch Records

Nonesuch RecordsThe redesigned Nonesuch Records website features a complete overhaul of the site’s content, features, design and technology to provide Nonesuch and its artists with a robust, attractive new platform to directly interact with fans—introducing them to new artists and genres; supporting their exploration via blogs, radio players, videos and music tracks; and then driving them to purchase. The entire site is built on a customized Drupal-based content management platform that can be easily updated and fully supported by Nonesuch’s own resources.... More

Morimoto Restaurant

Morimoto Restaurant NYCAn exceptional restaurant and celebrity chef (Starr Restaurants) deserves a modern Flash site with sharp transitions, perfect execution and appetizing presentation. The "flavor profiles" of this design tantalize the user to explore the aesthetic and gastronomic qualities of the restaurant in this full-screen Flash presentation. Check out the menu and tour sections where tasty transitions make it feel like the site is being diced and sliced for your dining pleasure.... More

While this site is not really breaking any conventions, sticking to expectations and a certain number of boundaries is always going to be friendly and accessible for your clients. Overall, it's a breeze to navigate.... More

Martin + Osa

Martin + OsaAlthough it looks like a Swedish version of The Gap, Martin + Osa is actually an American Eagle Outfitters company. The name comes from a pair of early 20th century naturalists, photographers and safari adventurers from Kansas, named Martin and Osa Johnson. We really liked the site's simplicity, and we found the 'Layer Your Own Look' feature to be a pretty slick idea for stimulating multiple purchases.... More

Kent Rogowski

Kent RogowskiKent Rogowski is an artist and photographer. You may be familiar with his work titled Love = Love, that patch-works pieces from different puzzle sets to create unique fantasy floral scenes. We also enjoyed his latest work Bears (see thumbnail) where he has photographed a series of toy bears turned inside out. His work is simply beautiful, and soulfully stirring.... More

Letterpool

LetterpoolLetterpool is a brilliant community art project built around uncovering exceptional typography found throughout the streets of Liverpool. Powered by the public, this interactive exhibit calls upon users to send in their own photographs of found type – either modern or dating back in history – and the winning 100 entries will be published into a hardback book. A fantastic idea, executed with exceptional design... and perhaps a project that could be expanded to many different cities.... More

Gateway to Lithuania

Unofficial Gateway to LithuaniaFor a publicity and marketing site for Lithuania, this "unofficial" gateway site for the small eastern European country has some great information design. In one compact package, it wraps up important business and tourism information and presents it clearly to the viewer. The gateway has a bit of an advertising feel to it, but overall, the site accomplishes it's goal of changing perceptions about this country, which is technologically advanced and socially open-minded....

Eden Organix

Eden OrganixThe first site in our new web design category of "green" design, Eden is a shop that carries over 20 different hand-picked brands of eco-friendly cosmetics and beauty products. The site design strikes the right notes with some very neutral toned, earthy, color choices. It also features a harmonic design system using an inverse bracket – playing off of their logotype – that runs through the site. Spacious typographic lock-ups and ample white space round out the entire experience, which ultimately leaves shoppers feeling good about making healthy choices.... More

Converse - Germany

Converse - GermanyFive solid series of designs bringing together the various sections of the Converse sneakers site for the German market. From history, to clothing & campaigns, the design style is unified by a consistent navigation style and appearance. The true highlight is the "Katalog" section, where you can zoom into a large star arrangement which is made up of hundreds of converse sneaker designs. On the flip-side, the site features an annoying video host, who pops up and acts bored every time you don't click something immediately.... More

The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web

The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the WebExamine this statement: "Typography on the web sucks!", true or false? Well, for too long most designers have been stuck in the mindset that when it comes to applying practical typographic styles and attention to detail to type on the web, it's a lost cause... But it doesn't have to be that way! The web has caught up, and we can no longer use technology as an excuse. Enter, this perfect little site that translates the best aspects of Robert Bringhurst's seminal book on typography into a practical guide for managing web type. This is an indispensable site that should be shared between designers and developers alike!... More
