Graffiti art is getting more
and more integrated with the latest design trends and
Marc Ecko's success is a sign of the times. Ecko, formerly
a street artist like your humble editor, has blown up
the spot with his strongly graphic oriented take on
fashion. And his online vision is just as progressive
- he utilizes flash, photography and experimental navigation
to create a unique composition that weaves multiple
disciplines into one great package. Look for parts of
the old site and navigation under 'archive' and be sure
to check out ROBo's area under the Climate CD portion
of the site... and enjoy.

Many 're-mix' projects - the
sort where a sequence of designers create variations
of, improvements upon or additions to an initial digital
design - have come and gone... however, this is the
best one we know of that still rocks on. RMX is a tight
collaboration of eight Brisbane designers, launched
from a desire to produce exciting visual work in an
unpredictable way - generating visual works that, in
the final viewing, are "as surprising to the creators
as they are to the viewer".

Busting out the fresh funky
style - this is street art taken to the vector dimension.
This release marks the creation of a new height in online
graffiti where the styles born in the streets of NYC
are merged with a sharp graphic eye, tight computer
skills and the love of Gundam. 123KLAN is on online
crew hailing from Lille, France. Reprazent ma brothahs

Simian's fifth incarnation titled
'Journey Inwards' presents 7 semi-interactive movies
that tend to induce a dreamlike state of mind. They
offer a peek into the consciousness of an artist strangely
enveloped in a veil of peacefulness who travels the
twisted paths between brilliance, insanity and emotional
distress. Take your time with these: each semi-interactive
story unfolds at about 5 minutes each, with your help...

of the Drums ()
A rocking site for the promotion
of drum & bass music. 'Drums' features finely integrated
audio, great 3-D work, and a wholly chaotic construction
of parts that houses DJ info, concert dates and more.
We were really impressed with level of minute digital
details that went into this design: a highly technical
Flash introduction, original architectural shapes and
finely woven textures nestled into sharp duotone backgrounds.

Warp records is the label site for a great many new
electronic and independent-style artists. The design
features a tight, dark style of flat, 'blocky' colors
meant in many cases to imitate 3-D or a 3-D version
of equalizers. The overall appearance can be a bit sparse
at times, but allows for efficient updates from the
database as this is a comprehensive site for many artists.
