Kontain

KontainKontain yourself, alright? And welcome to your own blog and share site for novice to intermediate web users. At Kontain, you get lots of friendly tools, but need to know nothing about HTML to build your own web pages. And that's the point... Keep the sharing simple, stupid! Nice big buttons and colorful clean pages make this "web 2.0" design fun and friendly for all.... More

Letterpool

LetterpoolLetterpool is a brilliant community art project built around uncovering exceptional typography found throughout the streets of Liverpool. Powered by the public, this interactive exhibit calls upon users to send in their own photographs of found type either modern or dating back in history and the winning 100 entries will be published into a hardback book. A fantastic idea, executed with exceptional design... and perhaps a project that could be expanded to many different cities.... More

Members Project

Members ProjectGorgeous sites are even nicer when they have a purpose. American Express funds $2.5 Million to 5 user-selected projects addressing everything from environmental issues to education, community development to health. Meaningful content drives great design, as shown in the clear and crisp layout of this altruistic project. But just as important as the site design, is the variety of brilliant ideas [link] giving hope to people from all walks of life, no matter what country or culture.... More

Milarepa

Milarepa (Link Down)A compact and window-driven site for the Milarepa Tibetan action fund. The organization urges people to vocalize their opposition to the physical and spiritual occupation of Tibetan culture. The design uses the windows effectively with a minimum of confusion and it's also foolproof to technical disturbances. Great photographs of Tibet and simple color combinations grace every page throughout this pure pop-up site.... More

Morimoto Restaurant

Morimoto Restaurant NYCAn exceptional restaurant and celebrity chef (Starr Restaurants) deserves a modern Flash site with sharp transitions, perfect execution and appetizing presentation. The "flavor profiles" of this design tantalize the user to explore the aesthetic and gastronomic qualities of the restaurant in this full-screen Flash presentation. Check out the menu and tour sections where tasty transitions make it feel like the site is being diced and sliced for your dining pleasure.... More

Once Upon a School

Once Upon a SchoolThere's just not enough saints, givers and teachers in this world... but you can help make a difference. It's a time of service and sharing, and Dave Eggers has recognized it – and provided us with a platform for making a difference in our local schools; by teaching and leading kids as a volunteer. Simply dream up a project, make it happen, and tell your story to inspire countless others.... More

Open Doors Student Site

Open Doors Student SiteAs wary as we are to post anything on Digitalthread with a religious slant (Note: you may notice two things we almost never post about is religion and alcohol-related products), we are fans of this rather simple tri-tone (actually it's 5-toned) design of this youth-oriented Christian site. It used to be that many of these organizations had horrible design standards, but over the last 5 years they have poured more money into design, recognizing the benefits of graphics in attracting a younger audience. Does this slicker design package breed a skeptical distrust among other "non-affiliates"? Naturally, it might, but who is to say these "firms" cannot engage in smart marketing of their own message and "products"? It leads to all sorts of prickly questions around the branding of religions that this editor cannot hope to undertake in this forum, nor is it prudent to do so... but do feel free... More

Robotmania

RobotmaniaThis site will be of special interest to anyone fascinated by the dreamy age of space travel and technology, and of course to collectors and fans of 50s and 60s tin toys. The amount of creativity and artistic talent that went into crafting this collection of space-themed toys and robots is truly amazing—certainly these unique pieces define a bygone era not to be repeated again. And the Flash site by Alberto Cerriteno is a perfect blend of modern, yet rustic design... and even includes a retro game of Space Invaders.... More

SUMMER

SUMMERA simple, apparently thoughtless design, the SUMMER page brings something more to light. It is the simplicity and heated moments of Summer days passing by in slow sluggish strides, a trodding giant across our skies. Welcome to Summer. Enjoy the sun, and drink lots of water. Shockwave required. Brought to you by Team Internet Services at META DESIGN Berlin.... More
