The North Atlantic

The North AtlanticA site for the indy rock band The North Atlantic that uses full-sized industrial photographs with a navigation merged with the bands orginal artwork to create an gritty atmosphere that fits the music extremely well. We liked the way the main navigation (on the right) pops up differently for each page, yet is still completely usable and recognizable - regardless of different placement and artwork (...the left navigation icons are also nice, but those take you outside of the main site to affiliate sites and blogs). Overall, a very tenacious portrayal of a modern American wasteland sets the right tone for this rock band with punk influences.... More

Palass

palassA French record label with an interesting '9-Quadrant' design... It's edgy and distressed, yet clean, with lots of open white space... Palass uses a Flash-derived navigation to scroll beyond your browser screen edges and expose parts of a larger page design. And each quadrant contains a different 'magazine' style navigation with flippaple pages that contain the news, a scratchbook, videos and more. The artists inside include Emir Kusturica, Liquid Architecture and Arielle Dombasle. A hip, yet ultimately, nicely structured home for a variety of lables.... More

just for the F of it

just for the F of itJust another really sick animated Flash music site from our falafel-eating, funky-faced, far out friend, Todd Purgason. But this time it's different - this time the site ain't anything you've seen before. So figure out what the hell a fugly fairy really is, and even torch her with a bow and flaming arrow by a belligerent french ferret. And hey, there's cool Easter egg stuff to download, like free MP3s from some bands, and a blog by Mark Hoppus. Did we forget to mention this was a site for Fuse TV? Have fun!... More

Warp Records

Warp RecordsWarp records is the label site for a great many new electronic and independent-style artists. The design features a tight, dark style of flat, 'blocky' colors meant in many cases to imitate 3-D or a 3-D version of equalizers. The overall appearance can be a bit sparse at times, but allows for efficient updates from the database as this is a comprehensive site for many artists. Programmed by: Kleber.... More

Classic Motown

Classic MotownAs complete and through as possible, this graphic and architectural wonder leaves little room for improvement. The Flash-driven navigation is a showcase for an ever improving design team and their final solution for this amazing project. As deep as it is wide, Motown is the ultimate culmination of great design, Flash technology and interface development that represents the height of online design and the essense of great user interaction. What we loved best was the intuitive simplicity that solved the challenge of presenting an entire history of musical information with visual impact. Motown enables the user to decide exactly what they want to see and which moment of history to explore by providing dual complimentary navigations; historical and visual (by artist). Designed by:...

Farmhouse

FarmhouseWinner of the 2000 Flash Film Festival, 'Welcome, This is a Farmhouse' is the Flash site for the band Phish and their new album. Phish have demostrated an eye for web design before, and this development is great for it's overall design, but also because it breaks new ground in Flash navigation. Farmhouse presents an environment where elements of the design must be pulled on and dragged to reveal snippets of interviews, songs, movies and content. The illustration and design is fantastic but the Flash animation and true interactivity enhance it to greatness.... More

music3w

Music3WMusic3W is a music fan site that features a slick purple and yellow cutout style page design. The site is very clean and flavorous, but unfortunately does not look like it's being updated much recently.... More

Gorillaz

GorillazGorillaz is a real band represented by fictional animated characters and this is a great virtual reality site and online home for the band. As you swoop through Kong Studios, the nav is a little confusing at times, but they do have a good help area hosted by a monkey... if that makes you feel any better. Contains lots of rooms and entertaining diversions.... More

medeski martin & wood

medeski martin & woodWe loved the combination of the woodblock type over the psychedelic purple and green rust pattern, but after the intro, once the site flips over to a three-frame design, it lost a little flavor compared to the opening sequence and the promising circle-based navigation.... More

Planet of the Drums

Planet of the DrumsA rocking site for the promotion of drum & bass music. 'Drums' features finely integrated audio, great 3-D work, and a wholly chaotic construction of parts that houses DJ info, concert dates and more. We were really impressed with level of minute digital details that went into this design: a highly technical Flash introduction, original architectural shapes and finely woven textures nestled into sharp duotone backgrounds....
