dConstruct 2012 Conference

 

 

 

Fully responsive web development site, and awesome design! Love the color overlays on the black and white photography, and the subtle geometric shapes in the background. Adds some nice texture.

Ryan Sims – Chitwood & Hobbs

I absolutely love the design and spirit of this blog.  Love all the crisp, Futura type, the headings are great and the black & white background photos are epic.

“Chitwood & Hobbs is a blog dedicated to the intersection of sports and culture as curated by Ryan Sims and Nick Hall. We have a soft spot for the 70s and 80s before sports was all about statistics, global brands, or the 24/7 news cycle — when there only was winning.” (taken from the About page on chitwoodandhobbs.com)

Michael P McMillan

This guy makes me sick (mainly because he’s still in school).  Lovely portfolio, logo and I love the 3D dropshadow effect on the thumbnails.

Check his website out here.

Marcell Póka – Lemon and Mint

 

Such an excellent identity.  Love how the branding carries through to both print and web so nicely. And the yellow is just so lemony. Well done I say.

The Artfuls

This is great platform for illustrators to display their work. There are interviews, downloadable wallpaper graphics and a “look book” section where you can quickly scan through work to find inspiration.  The website design is stellar too.

Paravel

Web, print and branding agency formed comprised by Trent Walton, Dave Rupert and Reagan Ray. They worked on gems such as themanyfacesof.com, and Lost World’s Fairs.  I love the illustrations, the watercolor-esce background and the care of which they’ve arranged the type.
