Screams across the web

Screams across the webThis emotive wonder was created last year for Lycos's Halloween Hot Picks. It's a conceptual wonder - fine textures and subtle movements evoke fear among surfers of the web! A spooky conceptual demo created last Holloween (1996) by Entropy8 for Lycos. The design treatment combines script type and some early English type to create an antique, gothic feel.... More

Sm:)e comm

Sm:)e commSimplicity evokes a wealth of ideas, as displayed by this single page minimalist intro to a web design firm. The inside is also subdued, but we just loved this front page. Smile Comm's entry page utilizes principles of Swiss grid graphic design without losing it's objective strength and interest. It also loads fast, which puts a double-smile on our face. The site has changed since this posting.... More

Smashstatusquo

SmashstatusquoMore than just one site, these designed marketing vehicles for Adobe's suite of development tools are great interactive 'mini-sites'. These sites dazzle and amaze with rich-media, dynamic movement, animations and novel navigational interfaces. Smash showcases with a 4-Quadrant navigation, while Defy takes you through a linear walk-through of a ground-up development of Defy itself with it's 'reverse deconstruction' metaphor for the design. Adobe recently released a third such promo-site featuring more of the same with a slightly more hip & digital design - to market to even younger users, Splatterpunk.com. However all three of these sites are now long gone. No one likes to keep nice classic designs up anymore.... More

Spychaser

SpychaserA showcase of branding, Spy merges 3-Com network products into an online spy story. This site is no longer active. For a tight frames site with impeccable navigation, Spychaser can't be beat. It's tough for the site to really capture your attention for long, but the branding experience is worthwhile. This promo site is down since this posting.... More


Teatr Muzyczny

Teatr Muzyczny (Musical Theater)A very dark and distressed promotional site for a musical theater company in Poland. This site shows how it really takes a number of elements coming together in harmony to make a great online presentation. We were very impressed with the full screen "slicing" Flash transitions, minimal use of colors, grainy diffused photos and solid type treatments. Even if you don't understand Polish, you can have a good experience just from flipping through these large page designs using a very easy to understand navigation. Dark and dramatic!... More

Test Drive Unlimited

Test Drive UnlimitedIn a continuing sign of the explosion of video gaming to come, Atari rises from the ashes to release a first-of-its-kind Massivly Multiplayer Online racing game for the XBOX360 platform. Test Drive Unlimited is the signature release for the 360 (much as Halo was for the first generation XBOX) which is virtually set on 1000 miles of 3D roads on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Test Drive brings many unprecedented online features to the racing genre and is the first title to fully showcase the true power of the new triple-processor system. If you haven't been keeping up with video games since the days of Spy Hunter then you'll be astounded by the graphics available for home systems which undoubtedly rival the realism of 3D created for blockbuster animation movies. We're very happy that Atari has released a slick, flashy site that describes all of the features, and provides fresh... More

the ad*itive

the ad*itivethe ad*itive bills itself as a cultural creative shop: a place that connects brands and people together. This is not a web shop - it is probably best described as a new age marketing firm. The site design is highly visual and subtly active, built in Flash and enhanced by photography, sound, animated pictographs and good typography. Web designers familiar with some of their previous designs will accurately recognize this as the work of One9ine.... More

the apartment

the apartmentA novel net-promoted shopping experience - not all online, and not at your home - theapt asks you visit their store, which is really a well furnished apartment in NYC's soho area. theapt.com is a teaser for a shopping experiment that caters to people looking for a diversion from the usual shopping experience. Furnishing an apartment in New York and selling items right out of the living room is a new venture, and theapt.com site created the online buzz needed to make the apartment a promotional success....

The Coke side of life

The Coke side of lifeCollaborating with a number of ad agencies, this online adaptaion of a Coca-Cola campaign is flooded with rich graphics and visual goodies - essentially an animated world where you can download all manner of online knick-knacks, explore fan-sites, play games, and discover tons of cross-promotions. While we feel somewhat dubious as to the true usefulness of a site like this, as a pure artistic splash of animated exploration, its certainly a treat for the eyes. All text and copy in German....

The Creative Mind

Adobe - The Creative MindIt's been a little while since we've seen a hot Adobe web advertisement like this... The visually eye-blowing site features the work of several design studios and image makers, spread across a universe of three exquisitely rendered, illustrated, and animated planets. The result is a free-flowing, interactive animated experience that shows off the new capabilities of Adobe Creative Suite 2.3 within the abstract framework of a designer's mental universe. Not to be missed.... More

The Enchanted Office

The Enchanted OfficeMicrosoft strikes our pages again with some imaginative advertising for their new Microsoft Office 2007 rollout. This web advert takes the form of a ten page illustrated fairy tale comic book that features a fairy tale princess CEO who saves her woodland empire through the wonders of Office’s newly redesigned interface. Kudos for Microsoft for breaking out of the usual boundries of creativity in promoting software products.... More

The Tap Project

The Tap ProjectAs mega software drink companies make millions off bottling spring water for the "health conscious" masses, on March 22nd, participating restaurants in New York City will draw attention to the less fortunate, and invites patrons to donate just $1 for the tap water they usually enjoy for free (for those who may not know, NYC has some of the cleanest tap water in the country, and the world). All monies raised will help UNICEF provide safe drinking water to children around the world. And non-New Yorkers can donate too through this site. So drink up on World Water Day.... More
