Flugtag San Francisco

Flugtag San FranciscoThis site promotes the very first Red Bull FLUGTAG to be held in the US. Flugtag, which is relatively new in the States, has been putting on these freak fests around the world for years and they are always a beautifully original experience. Throughout the Web site, the design conveys a clean, yet playful appeal in it's illustrated elements and motion details. The great design is further enhanced when minimalist hand-drawn extras - such as the swirling wind graphic - are positioned in contrast to full-on typography.... More

El Semillero

El SemilleroFrom a simple seed can sprout the most implausible creations, and the only thing that you need to do is to go up, up and up… So starts a journey through one of the most original websites we've ever visited. Discover the brain-bugs, the hand-flowers and the hearts with human caterpillars, all inside the incredible universe of “El Semillero?", a school for creatives, advertisers and designers located in Mexico. The site is truly an ingenious work of love, with 5 stages of such beautifully animated and rich interactive sections, it makes it difficult to put into words. From what we could gather with our tepid Spanish skills, El Semillero is essentially an elite design school that is responsible for filling up many of the open positions in Spanish speaking advertising agencies across the world. It's really worth checking out every section completely, as each area has its own fantastic elements.... More

Doritos | Snack Strong

Doritos | Snack StrongWith a bit of nacho-on-tongue-in-cheek showmanship, Doritos beings us into their immersive virtual 3D hollywood production set, which doubles as a slighty apocalyptic-hued fantasy secret lab. Again, the detail in these animations is certainly beyond the scope of reasonable spending, but the results are really impressive. There is more than enough eye-candy to go around—down to the randomness programmed into little ant-like people on the ground... and it's only 2/5 complete as three more sections are due to be released in the near future. As a big childhood fan of original Doritos, I'm personally not sure why they need 15 new flavors, but evidently these guys have more time on their hands than you can shake a spice rack at.... More

Desktop.com

Desktop.comThe Desktop application and efficiency tool helps you keep your many disparate forms of information in synchronicity. Their online software provides a 'corner of the web' where you can store your site passwords, bookmarks, and even retrieve web content you want and need. To enable this, Desktop provides a growing list of online apps located at 'desktop' urls and 10Mbs free storage to start. The design is bold and effective, providing large and easy to understand iconographics set within a bold, although un-original, file-tab folder design that is very nice and effectively impresses upon the user the fact that the site doubles as an application and usable tool....

D&G Time

D&G Time The new D&G Time web site for watches features a truly advanced navigaton concept, beautiful design and original sound. Designed and developed by Koinema, the site operates like clockwork precision, allowing you to either narrow down these luxury wrist watches by color, type and styling, or simply spin the wheel and let D&G pick a random watch for you to view. Built entirely in Flash, the circular navigation is actually a powerful sorting device... yet unlike a straight database list, it is more like a Rolodex (not a Rolex) of watches that is fun to use and explore....

Coca-Cola BlaK

Coca-Cola BlaKAn online branding experience for the new coffee-injected Coke that invites the user to three beautiful virtual rooms representing three drinking moments of a Coca-ColaBlaK (after lunch, at work and at home). Once inside, visitors can access a couple mini-games related to the French tagline "L'esprit Vif?" (translation: "The Sharp Mind"). They give the opportunity to the visitor to take a Coca-ColaBlaK break and accept a mental, uplifting challenge. Overall, it's a very pretty promo for this new Coke drink, showcasing design, bold color-choices and the new, hip Coke packaging more than anything else. An effervescent endeavour for a visually-driven promotional vehicle (written in French).... More

Featuring Colby Chester (you might recognize him as the Bad Guy from Dukes of Hazard, Episode #4) and a lemur in a ballet leotard. This real online ad for Microsoft Home Servers makes you take a second look - it's certainly not the usual line-up of dry corporate facts and photos, but rather a video and actor driven, tongue-in-cheek parody of advertising. Corny? Yes! Effective? Absolutely.... More
