Design Week Portland

Design Week Portland

At first I didn’t consider the site “Most Loved” worthy but when you dive deeper there is definitely loads love in here. The responsive works well and I like how the big numbers are a selectable web font. Also there is actually a ton of info in this site but considerately hidden by accordions, really useful when skimming sessions. Lastly the “party mode” scheme switcher bottom right is a nice touch:)

Its hard to put in words the awesomeness of this wedding site, you really need to experience the parallax scrolling and illustrations yourself. Can imagine this site took months to build and so worth the result.

Loving this One Pager for the (free) Overgram iPhone app. It has such a good demo, you just have to sit and watch the iPhone whilst the browser background also previews examples. Brilliant.

A lot of companies get the full screen + keyboard navigation concept wrong, Perconte has got it spot on in a slick minimalistic way. Brilliant job with quality images too.

Fakeer

Fakeer

Not the best looking preloader but spot on with concept. Fakeer seems like a pretty bad ass drink and their design correlates with their image. Mega parallax scrolling against a solid background with a grunge feel. With a market so saturated you’ll need this first impression for new users to remember you when scanning supermarket shelves.

The Mailboxing game website is one of those sites you land on and you literally scroll down and up several times to take in the awesomeness. Its busy yet bold and minimal. The color is just bursting out the screen and that double ipad/iphone slideshow is really the x-factor for me. I recently interviewed Asketic team member, Austris Urtans

The majority of sites within the health sector are terribly designed so you can imagine my surprise when Andrew Lucas submitted the beautiful Cambridge Healthcare site to us.

I caught up with Andrew and asked him a few questions about himself, his role in the site, approval process and how he requests all the fine details in the development. Read the interview here.
