Knnox Web Designs

I would, of course, never advocate smoking cigarettes (they will damage your health and that of your loved ones). But if I was a smoker, I’d want one of the brutalist brass lighters from Knnox, and it’s all thanks to the scandi-noir art direction on this site.

A&Mcreative Web Designs

French creative agency A&Mcreative presents its work in typical Parisian style: understated, effortlessly cool, and probably three or four times over your budget. Compare the modest way its extraordinary client list is presented, to the way some agencies talk up their work.

Part Architects Web Designs

The site for Part Architects, is both extraordinary, and difficult to love. The text is very hard to read, using a font that wouldn’t be out of place advertising a club night. Scroll through and the text projects along the surfaces at the extremes of the viewport. It’s bonkers, but brilliant.

Throwing its hat into the ring of the emerging electric bicycle market is Centros. Targeting customers who have more money than peddle power, the slick, animated site mimics tech sites like Apple, without ever straying from the tablet-friendly format that baby-boomers prefer.
