Notts Art

Notts ArtA sweet and clean little Flash detection for a local arts project, 'notts' provides info on contemporary artworks situated across Nottinghamshire, England. We liked the colors and overhead location maps especially, but found readability slightly impaired - probably due to the use of Vag Rounded as copy text. Overall, notts art is a tasty, informative treat.... More

office for subversive architecture

Something different... Not necessarily designed to the most detailed of specs, this site appears to be barely glued together... but it's that bit of patchwork that enhances beauty and gives it some interesting visual flavor.... More

Painting for a cause

Using various printing methods and drawing techniques on found prints, Ornithology creates an interesting juxtaposition between old drawings and new drawing styles - which in the end makes the prints look old again ... or like they were run over by a utility truck at a garage sale (*not* a bad thing!). Well, WE liked them, however, if you're not a fan of the art, at least the web pages are quite clear and beautiful.... More

Praystation

PraystationEvolving ever since we can remember, the Praystation of 1999-2000 is a leader in demonstrating the highest levels of complexity in Flash tek and design interactions. From digital paintbrushes, to Replicating Snowflakes, to Building a Tsunami, Praystation promises the widest and wildest array of Flash Tek experiments online to date - at best guess, more than 50. And as both the artist and the teacher at the same time - Pray delivers eye-fetching content, while more recently he provides code from the experiements for others to learn from - then throw in occational updates of the authors' exploits with a smart interface that leads your through all of the modules and you have one of the diamond superstars of Flash Tek....

Prototype

PrototypeAn independently created classic from Sweden. Hard to believe it's just a 'prototype'. Until the Scandi webgallery arrives, this is just scratching the surface of the rich web design talent blooming in the Scandanavic regions. Mattias Jonsson brings us a dynamic wonder site from Sweden. Since this posting the old site is down, but a new innovation is promised to arrive at some point in the future. We'll keep you updated.... More

Qaswa

QaswaQaswa was an early showcase of 3-dimensionality online. Great use of shading created one of the first sites with an illusion of depth. The navigation used the default vertical nature of the browser to its advantage, while the iconography complimented the smooth nature of the shading. Clean, and tightly organized, Qaswa was a truly innovative web design in the design spectrum of the time. The site has been redesigned since this posting and the Qaswa entity (now qaswa communications) is mainly focused on doing design work.... More

Respiration

RespirationAn online 'folio for a prolific designer with a great compositional sense. Jeff has created a number of highly detailed, textural and ultimately beautiful sites. Jeff's list of site designs reads like a Digitalthread webgallery issue. His porfolio of sites includes Land Speed Skates, the Red#40 Site, Disappearing Inc.'s Font Arsenal and the Neoglyphics Site. He has worked with Disappearing Inc, In2, Giant Step, Neoglyphics, Red#40 and CDnow.... More

RMX

RMXMany 're-mix' projects - the sort where a sequence of designers create variations of, improvements upon or additions to an initial digital design - have come and gone... however, this is the best one we know of that still rocks on. RMX is a tight collaboration of eight Brisbane designers, launched from a desire to produce exciting visual work in an unpredictable way - generating visual works that, in the final viewing, are "as surprising to the creators as they are to the viewer"....

Robotmania

RobotmaniaThis site will be of special interest to anyone fascinated by the dreamy age of space travel and technology, and of course to collectors and fans of 50s and 60s tin toys. The amount of creativity and artistic talent that went into crafting this collection of space-themed toys and robots is truly amazing—certainly these unique pieces define a bygone era not to be repeated again. And the Flash site by Alberto Cerriteno is a perfect blend of modern, yet rustic design... and even includes a retro game of Space Invaders.... More

Simian

SimianSimian's fifth incarnation titled 'Journey Inwards' presents 7 semi-interactive movies that tend to induce a dreamlike state of mind. They offer a peek into the consciousness of an artist strangely enveloped in a veil of peacefulness who travels the twisted paths between brilliance, insanity and emotional distress. Take your time with these: each semi-interactive story unfolds at about 5 minutes each, with your help... hence "semi"-interactive.... More


Spavia

SpaviaEvery once in a while, we come across a site or portfolio that truly breaks new ground in interaction and interface design... Of course, you don't need to read any farther to know what you can only experience by visiting the site. But let's just fill in the blanks; This is an art and industrial design portfolio website for the works of a creative duo from Hungary. Spavia (both sections) contains artworks and projects in ceramics and porcelain, silicate design products, paintings, photograms and photography. Kudos go out to these two who have obviously contemplated the medium (Flash) and made their portfolio very easy to use and understand, while also developing a highly original creation. (Added HINT: Use intuitive keyboard buttons to "walk" through instead of clicking.)... More

Super Shibuya

Super ShibuyaMaintained by a designer in France, this site showcases the visual richnesss of Japanese design - illustrations, graphic design, photography, movie posters, and even some interesting eccentricities. Super probably qualifies as our first international gallery piece - originating in France - and it was one of the first personal sites that showcased a designers' ideas, works and interests in a well designed public presentation. This style of site is still the choice presentation for independent graphic designers to self-promote their print and web work. Usually, the designers use this style of site to hone existing skills, engage new projects and work, or to publicize some interest of personal importance. Super is still up, but hasn't changed since 1997.... More
