Stockholm Design LabŪ
Don't you get it yet? "It's" all about having like one graphic on your site. Geez. Take it from the Swedes.
Stockholm Design LabŪ.
Though this kid comes from the school of "holier-than-thou", if you still think that mixed media is all the rage, then you could probably publish a book on it using nothing but his glue-based collages and found "art". Nice, simple site.

Francis Lam
This simple black portfolio of Francis "Shanghai" Lam showcases great digital-style print, sceen and art works. The interface is a real treat and everything about the site jives with his pixel style art and design.

iPod's Dirty Secret
Can neither confirm nor deny this, however, using a Sony Walkman to listen to my old NWA tapes is apparently still the right move.

Shilo Design
We're stuck on Shilo's crafty 3-D motion graphics with contemporary flat 2-D edges (or is it 2-D graphics with 3-D edges?) Animated into compelling clips... you just can't seem to tear your eyes away.

A wispy portfolio and monthly exhibition site from a Bogota girl - focus is on showcasing "like-minded" illustrators - which breaks down to mean that if you are reviewed here, you already are a hot-as-shit illustrator. Truly tons of excellent work in here.

Road Runner
Welcome to the soft and sexy world of Road Runner (Time Warner's broadband brand) that has *maxxed* out the smoothness and soft edges in this full-on flash experience. It's like that first marshmallow fresh out of the packaging. Mmmmmmm...
Road Runner Flash Portal.
Forget calipers (PC), xScope (OSX) brings you a suite of 6 nifty measuring, tweaking, zooming, pinching and rotating tools to let you agonize and pixel-push web designs in real-time on your screen without taking screenshots. And, if IconFactory can devise a screenshot tool that doesn't push your hex values around and include it with this suite of tools, we'll be the first in/on-line.
xScope: from Iconfactory.
Photos, illustrations (lots), motion collections, and type. In other words, everything a growing designer needs.

For all those interested in getting into some hands-on design, get your needle & thread, and contemporary embroidery kits from Jenny Hart.

Reuters Messaging Demo
There's something attractive about the pop-up demo off of this page (hit "VIEW DEMO"). The design is defined by clean, open white space and simple line work - although the look of the application itself could use some serious ID work.

Indien Sthlm
Sorry, but we're still addicted to blank sites with this winter background of white and the light diagonal lines. If you're tired of it, then we understand... But *we're* tired of not being to read web sites anymore. That being said, bump up that font size a few notches you damn Swedes!

An interesting design firm with a slimmed down philosophy exemplified by their bare-bones site with nice case studies. Great identity work and self-promo books. Some work by Ryan McGinness found inside.
