The Boom and the Arty
Strangely atmospheric and ecclectic, the Boom is an original music, graphic, digital and analog portfolio of work housed in a beautiful Flash-driven online atmosphere. Everything about the Boom, and the music made by the artist, is highly twitchy and very detailed, making for a beautiful visual platter and a delicious audio treat.

Juega 10
A new hot summer launch, this is a commercial Nike Latin America site to promote a new "street-wear", or "active-wear" clothes line, launching in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. The site itself is quite pretty, including some nice interactive moments and an amusing digital film. The script of the film was developed by Wieden Kennedy agency and produced by GrupoW. The film and the site are entirely in Spanish (and Portugese).

Stefan Gissberg
Sifting through young Stefans Gissberg's Flash-based online portfolio is much like sipping on a tall refreshing glass of glacier water. It's pure of intent, refreshing, and immediately understandable (it's crystal!). He's a graphic designer in the pure sense, and also progressing at web design work, as can be seen in his portfolio site design, and other works.

the open spaces
the/open/spaces is a newly birthed freelance design studio for an outstanding print designer. While the site itself is bare-bones HTML and the pop-ups are a little mundane, the print works - from posters to packaging and identities - are truly inspiring. The artist blends multiple mediums in his projects but focuses primarily on print media, with great results.

bendable element
Easy on the eyes and rapidly digestible, this is a great "to-the-point" portfolio site of print illustrations and online design interface work. Basically presented in a linear format, it's quite simple to see the big picture and understand this graphic designers style and skills... which is good in all regards!

Get Elevated
A fluid composition of imagination and navigation help create a storybook of creative action in this portfolio site built in Flash. Very elegant presentation, with a very clean slate, the work - from print to identity, and even some traditional art - stands out quite beautifully.
