Bearskinrug
Crack open the newspaper-like portfolio of designer and illustrator Kevin Cornell and you'll get a delivery of his excruciatingly banal prose, a sampling of his online portfolio, and if you dig deeper, relics like the only known picture of Kevin during his stint at Oxford. Fabulous illustrations await you.

Mac mini mania!
Even if you're a PC die-hard, it's hard not to enjoy these 2 new miniturized offerings from Apple. One is a key-chain size $100 iPod (512k or 1BG) that lets you take a musical party shuffle on the go... And the other is a new mini-Mac, about one third the size of the old (failed) G4 cubes, but starting at only $500. So, even if you're still a PC head, for $600, you can now out-style any old Apple head.

SNYVO!
Snyvo is the beautiful, side-scrolling portfolio of Yves Hellemans, a yound graphic designer from Belgium. And can you guess why we liked his site from the start? Because of a simple entry page that kick-starts the navigation scheme, and at the same time, provides some FUN graphics. So.. what did we expect to find inside? Some really nice work too... and from the look of it, it seems like the Belgian punk rock-scene belongs to him! Lots of scratchy, photocopied and almost cut-out graphics adorn his many great print and web works, which are nicely antiqued, and always have a couple flourishes of flavor to them. Excellent stuff!
SNYVO! (BE).
goxxip
A great punky, new-wavish and unfinished web site for a collective, whose parts make up more than the whole. Part young band, and part high-school art students, Gossip is like the doodles in your class notebooks come to life. We liked the funky line work and general disarray, along with the mixed up typography. It all comes together to make a mess... and good design sense.
Goxxip - Gossipyouth.
Level Vodka
The last thing you want to see after New Years celebrations is more vodka, for sure. But this ultra minimal new "little water" from the makers of ABSOLUT has a clear and clean site with a James Bond-like finish, and a fully interactive Flash presentation that will leave you spinning. Then, once you find your legs again, you'll level out and appreciate this fine piece of marketing and web design, despite the nagging hangover.
Level Vodka (SE).
WADE
Wade tells us that Wade is not a person, ok. Working independently, and with a range of talented artists, Wade currently produces a range of work from commercial to printed matter, interactive, and moving image. Nice site.

WHAT WHAT
This may seem not to make any sense, but we instictively knew this site would be great when we saw the large "ENTER" button. It's just like... What, What? They GET IT! And then we proceeded to not hate the music, although an OFF button is easily available. Then what else? Well, What What is a weird and wonderful world. A collection of curious characters inhabit this crazy place. So, explore, and get lost... and 'njoy!
