A photographers' site where the design
and navigation rises to the occation to compliment the
photography with the utmost style. The design itself
articulates the mood of Aaron's photography from the
start, while the gallery navigation plays with several
metaphors and relationships between camera, subject
and viewer. Special attention is given to enabling the
user who is thankfully presented the director's throne
and unbowed by any overbearance of design.

Asterisk Project ()
Asterisk is a great design 'explora-story'
detailing the many threads spun during the course of
designing a symbol for The National Design Awards. The
clean site presents 30+ design interpretations on the
concept, including visions from a variety of artists,
while it details the steps from sketch to final product.

There's three reasons why we
like this site. 1) It explains itself from the get-go.
Wow. This simple concept has become the most under-rated
idea in the web world. And it's especially welcome to
us 'over the hill' surfers. 2) No substance? No problem...
No pretense! 3) Just great type and text work from a
St.Martins graduate. Simple stuff, not too deep, but
with some minor Flash experiments for fun. 4) The homage
to NY Knicks great Bernard King. Is that 4? I told you
we were getting old.

Evolution and Human Origins
are explored here in an extensive, information-rich
online destination for paleoanthropology. The site includes
an interactive documentary, educational exhibits, research
tools, and the latest news from scientists across the
globe. The Web site design itself is in the format of
the classic module (or mini-site) first popularized
by interactive feature work done for a famous
magazine, however much more thoroughly researched

is Print? ()
A kiosk and web installation
that works as a complimentary piece to print exhibitions
at the museum, "what is a print?" demonstrates
the steps involved in the four best-known printing techniques.
So grab the gouging tool, the etching needle, your chemical
solution and paper and have fun. Fine illustrations
and clean Flash navigation, as we have come to expect
from the developers.
Designed by: The
Evil is a cryptic destination
that heralds the power of interface more than the actual
design of the modules contained within. Entering the
site requires you to figure out some short interface
puzzles, but thankfully, it explains itself just enough
to hook you in. But, even when you think you've figured
it out, you've probably only gotten into a couple of
several possible modules. If you get them all right
away, cool. If you don't, head to the back of the class
for more punishment, "dumbass".
