I subscribe to the DesignersDepot website for latest updates. Normally I don’t get many excellent ranking websites in the list from my books. However, today was a real treat as the new year approaches. I’m telling you, these websites are awesome. I’ll list the best from the 10 and you count how many are great.
Now, I’m not really sure what this website is about because I was too lazy to read and my P3 500 couldn’t really handle the Flash. However, their usage of the vector arts is superb with a nice touch of 3D I think.
This website looks like the ordinary Jane. However, I give merit to them in the Flash version for their transitions. It’s quite old school but it’s what that make most people not confused. I just opened the Flash version in IE and minus all the points I give them because it launches a ‘full screen’ window. It’s annoying! Oh yeah, I use Firefox. Thank you.
Oh-My-God! This website really takes the cake for me if I wanted beautiful women in lingerie. No, it isn’t a website like Victoria Secret. It’s the website of a photographer, Sacha Dean Biyan. *drool*
From acclaimed Flash company of the century (judged based on the mumbo-jumbo reference by clients), 2Advanced pulls out another winner of a design here. Elegant fruity design that maintains it’s concept. I think they could’ve done so much better with the loading screen but I guess because the client didn’t pay enough, 2A gave them a small dose. Pity..
We head down under with this piece from Australia. This website looks really nice. The color combination is something I couldn’t have thought of better. Easy reading but 1 fatal flaw, not Firefox friendly. Open it in the browser and thee shall heed its wrath.
Reason of these two being together is because their genre is roughly the same. Both were going for the futuristic feel to their website and both had some unique stuff that I liked.
So what are you waiting for? A whole bunch of links on top there for you.
The project that I promised to tell you all about can finally be revealed. This is my biggest freelance project that not only involved the creative but also the development. I admit that the website isn’t perfect in every way but if I were to say I could do better, every designer is a perfectionist.
A project of this size with not just involving a website but also banners and others did come with a sacrifice. Designers or those working in creative agencies should already have guessed it..sleep. As deadline nears and there’s much to squeeze into during that time, we end up not having enough sleep. As for me, I only slept at 6am today. My mum was shocked to see me awake thinking if I was really alright cause my sore throat is killing me.
Before I give you the website link, I’ll enlighten you about the purpose of this project. It’s about promoting the new phone from Motorola that’s coming soon. It’s the Motorola MPx and it’s going to be first released in SE Asia then worldwide. This is different from the other MPx models that you might have read about. What’s so unique about the website? Well, it’s really a blog that has 4 bloggers. Each of them have been given the phone exclusively to be used during this process. How cool is that? Free phone that’s not even out yet! And if my memory serves me right, they’re bills are covered by Motorola now I think. *shrug*
Okie okie, I know most of you must have opened up Google or Yahoo! and search for MOTOBLOG. Sorry if you were just too lazy to read through my post. Anyway, you can visit the website at: www.motoblog.com.my Enjoy!
