History of Parliment

History of ParliamentFrom Kings and Queens right down to Ministers, Members, and all their Yea's and Nea's, this rightfully clean and proper site covers a very comprehensive research project: The History of Parliment creates an account of parliamentary politics in England, then Britain, from their origins way back in the 13th century. Unparalleled in the comprehensiveness of its treatment, the History is generally regarded as one of the most ambitious, authoritative and well-researched projects in British history. This site gives you an overview of the entire project and some behind-the-scene insights.... More

Herron School of Art

Herron School of ArtBeautiful tonality and finely detailed designs grace each section of this schools website. The color scheme and planning are excellent, as are the richly layered images. Herron features great print work adapted to the web. This is a beautiful site design that integrates navigation quite intelligently to create an exemplary site. The site has changed slightly over the years, but much of the fine orginal work is preserved.... More

Firehouse735 Condominium

Like a good old-fashioned 'block' party (but minus the grill), this web site uses lots of squares of information in a colorful design, while using Flash to elegantly warp and transform the grid on each different page. With a limited amount of content, the site does a good job at balancing the building’s rich past (built in 1880) and the neighborhood’s soulful character with the sleek and modern residences inside. The design team used subdued, matte colors to showcase both the sunlit interior shots and the charming photos of Firehouse 735 as it once was in past times to appeal to an up-and-coming neighborhood in Brooklyn, Prospect Heights. Quite nice.... More

finemagazine

finemagazineVery fine! This promotional web-zine and artists forum has one of most pleasant and intuitive interfaces ever to grace the 'Thread. The content was originally supposed to be updated bimonthly making this magazine a truly worthwhile skulking ground, but actually, it was more of a promotional piece that helped launch Kioken's two lead designers into leadership of an established and still profitable firm in 2000. This site is no longer updated.... More

FAILE

FAILEIf you're not familiar with his work, FAILE is one of the modern day gods of the half-tone dot, stencil art, and gritty pop-culture graphics—and we were ecstatic to discover this website covering his unique multimedia designs. Done up like a sort of yellow pages ads on LSD, FAILE's many projects pick up where Andy Warhol left off... Prints, stencils, screenprints, and videos that resemble a street art-inspired cross between CONCRETE TV (MNN) and the Cartoon Network run through a photo copier. There's just too many gems in his site to list here, but let's say: clicking around will be heavily rewarded. For us, beyond a doubt, one of the best sites and artists of the year.... More

Espeluzland

EspeluzlandIt's not often in these days of clean, corporate CSS that you find completely wacky off-the-wall web sites that promote art, and actually are art at the same time. Enter Espeluzland! With it's weird and wonderful viral, dripping, decomposing framework that houses some beautifully decaying illustrations and art... Explore, and be rewarded with some kind of nasty art-born virus... Otherwise known as the disease of creativity!... More

entropy8

entropy8zuperA beautiful range of design graces these pages. Each full page, once loaded, completely fills the space like an artists' canvas. Great animations combine with content and backgrounds to give this site a richness usually reserved for print or painting work. Not enough can be said for the work of Auria Harvey. Her work has graced Digitalthread three times to date. This was her personal & professional site, which featured many original ideas and designs that were often heralded by design mags and emerging web design review sites. This site has since merged with Zuper.org. See links below.... More

Entreprises & Construction Durable

Entreprises & Construction DurableThis captivating design for a green website on sustainable construction is crafted with movement and unique transitions to diametrically oppose grey, static architecture websites. We absolutely love the way each page zooms out to show the entire page layout, then transitions you smoothly back to reading distance. Written entirely in French, even if you can't understand everything, you'll appreciate the flowing beauty of the Flash transitions and the intuitive user interface design. Fantastic design!... More
