Iomega

IomegaIomega's site employs a 'templated' design concept of bold lines and tonal balance that differentiates a range of products while it still maintains unity under a single brand. Their heavily framed section dividers invoke the same design used in the package and identity design on their data storage products and equipment. This site has since been redesigned.... More

ideo

ideoThis large industrial design firm's site is an excellent example of Swiss design methodologies. Strong linear Swiss grid techniques lend support to this visual structure while the contrast of the bright yellows and blues help highlight the products. Ideo enlisted the excellent web talents of Metadesign to create their website, which garnered several web design accolades and awards for their innovative and appropriate design solution.... More

ic! berlin

ic! berlinHome of the legendary eyewear designers ic! berlin, this site is just pure fun in a fabulous line work design which emphasizes the feather light style of designer glasses.

Fuse : Industrial Design

Fuse : Industrial DesignThis small site for a hybrid industrial and product design company features some nice gratuitous 3-D Flash movement and good overall cohesion and 'sense of space'. The highlight of this very crisp design is the green, living, modular and sometimes gooey nav system found positioned at the bottom left which guides you through the six basic pages of the site....

Flymo

FlymoThe British invention of the hovercraft was the inspiration for Swedish lawnmower inventor Karl Dahlman to develop a flying lawnmower and this site presents the product line with a lean but bold design impact. This is a well branded, brightly colored and amusing site that remains clean and clutter free, but sprinkled with demonstrative gif builds. An overall appealling product design and impressive online delivery of it's capabilities and range of models.... More

Electrolux

Electrolux.comAh, we can feel the effervescent cleaning power at work on our brains already... With this sky-blue background and gravity-defying water droplets, this single page gateway site for Electrolux – a Swedish appliance company – oozes with a fresh, sensual appeal. Unfortunately, the killer drawback to this page is that every single link takes you to another pop-up Electrolux site... Which wouldn't be so bad if the designs were more similar. It's a great gateway splash page, but ultimately this page is 99% functionally irrelevant. It's a testament to the difficulty (and failure) of unifying a multitude of branded global sites under one design. We can only hope, perhaps, that the design of this one page wonder will eventually be "filtered-down" to all the sub-country sites. In the meantime, enjoy the bubbles, but just don't click on anything!... More

Design and the Elastic Mind - MoMA

Design and the Elastic Mind - MoMADesign and the Elastic Mind explores the reciprocal relationship between science and design in the contemporary world by bringing together design objects and concepts that marry the most advanced scientific research with attentive consideration of human limitations, habits, and aspirations. The exhibition highlights designers’ ability to grasp momentous changes in technology, science, and history—changes that demand or reflect major adjustments in human behavior—and translate them into objects that people can actually understand and use. This Web site presents over three hundred of these works, including fifty projects that are not featured in the gallery exhibition. Originally launched in February of 2008.... More

Core 77

Core 77The old school industrial design magazine from the Pratt Design School in NYC. Core was changed in 1999, but still features articles and student projects with a clean delivery. Designed at Pratt University in NYC, originally by industrial design students, this site was a portal for showcasing student works and exhibits. Core77 is now (Nov.2000) more focused on promoting web design and ID together as a more universal graphic design portal and resource, but it has lost much of the interesting interface design that first made it a standout project....

Clase-a

Clase-aClase-A was developed for advertising the Mercedes - Benz A Class in 1997. 15 days after releasing the web site the car had it's own technical bugs. "The client gave us total freedom" Since the year of it's design the site has been regaled as a beautiful product despite the delivery extention on the car. All graphics were done using Freehand, Photoshop and After Effects.... More

Best Made Company

Best Made CompanyExactly how all websites may look one day - this is certainly the way we'd love to make websites; minimalist, white, with light splashes of color is what it's all about (for us). Trim copy, big product images, an appearance of high quality for this bespoke outdoor camping products shop. What's not to love? Neat looking & really simple.... More

Automobili Lamborghini

Automobili LamborghiniThe official Lamborghini website is the ultimate purist site for an Italian sports car lover. It does exactly what an exotic sports cars design company should do... And that's the opposite of thrilling you with special car games or cooler-than-thou navigation... Lamborghini righteously showcases their entire auto history with full-screen photographs, specs and measurments of some of the sickest cards known to man - from the very first model to today's ultra refined speed machines. Done up in the simplest black, with a totally minimal navigation yet a healthy heap of attitude, you may have to look twice to realize it's a full Flash site. All the effects and transitions are played down as to reduce their interference with the goods... And for any sports car purist, 'the goods' are the sexy, aggresive and mind-blowing designs of the Lamborghini autos themselves.... More

Audi-TT

Audi-TTThe culmination of websites that are supporting the launch of the Audi-TT Coupe. The site demonstrates a great grid-based web design. Multiple medias like streaming video, DHTML and integrated audio provide visitors with an opportunity to peruse through a rich description of the creative paths taken in the construction of this car. The structured nature of the metagrid boxes couples control and flexibility and an elaborately expanding interface control utilizes pictoral navigation to maintain a theme of beauty & exploration. All this while light design contrasts highlight the subtle silver tones and sophisticated beauty of the Coupe.... More
