This project introduces stories
of Brahmi (ancient Sanskrit letters) in a format that
combines visual art, music and the latest web technology.
The navigation is perfectly minimal and the delivery
of this editorial is purposely deliberate and slow;
be prepared for slowly evolving photography that is,
however, worth the wait. The conceptual inspiration
of the project is rooted in Buddhist philosophy and
is intended to deliver a message on tolerance, compassion
and the nature of being.

the Movie ()
A beautiful site for a new surf
movie (kind of...) presented by Jamie Mosberg and Billabong.
Inside, get familiar with the rough-edged and tweaked
duotone design style. It's a great homage to the old
school surfer graphics and you may even associate a
certain Carson-esque influence. "8 surfers, 8 exotic
locations, 1 wannabe and a jar of magic pickles".
They forgot: "1 great web site".

Crew Cuts is an amusing movie
editing & production haus located in California and
NYC. The design is original - using all hand-drawn and
cartoonish style - which really sets them apart from
the competition and brings their strengths into focus.
As far as web design is concerned, the 'Crew' uses great
Flash driven interactive bits in ways you won't see

A collaboration of new Canadian
artists, 6+ pieces of content focus on the essence of
exploring surroundings and emotions with design and
animation. These broadband dialogues - based in Quicktime
and Flash - are housed within a great grid interface
package. The experience prevails here, and while the
visuals are quite excellent, we'd wish there was a little
more to go on in terms of explanations or at least an
indication the length of some of these presentations.

A super hot teknikal design
feat. This release, replacing an already heavily awarded
previous site (done by Oyster Partners), brings the
best of the latest - minimal and future-tek-angular
design trends - together into one spectacular release.
This new push is dedicated to developing the best digital
entertainment destination, and this ripe design sends
the message: they are doing the business!

'Center' is the full frontal
interactive trailer for the new movie by Arista, released
April 20th. This Flash-built experience brings you into
the nightclub where a simulated quicktime interface
allows you to touch and select girls to dance for you,
seduce you, and much more. The interactive elements
are done so well by the crafty design team that at some
points you may even wonder if it's happening for real.
We also loved the hazy reds and purples - reminds us
of our corner XXX joint.

It's been a while since we've
posted a feature with great typography design, so it's
only fitting that this work comes from the Cranbrook
Academy of Art alumni. At this moment, the site is sparsely
populated - and will always remain in development -
but it stands as a great vista from which to examine
the online explorations of Cranbrook grads. Cranbrook
is a small school with limited enrollment, and this
site appropriately creates a modern yet matured aspect
that is befitting of a close, intimate community.

ei2ei Virtual Easter
A sweet pixelated holiday treat;
find the Easter eggs in an randomly generated landscape.
Each egg contains a hidden treasure, from mini Flash
movies, to egg recipes, short bunny movies, and even
an egg font... obviously, the crew behind this is following
a strict theme. There's also some fancy customizable
options going on behind the beautiful scenery.
