  • Adam Hayes is an illustrator and designer in England. He recently released a new website, which displays his colorful work in thumbnails that pop—the site itself looks like an intentional, responsive illustration. His varied lettering style brings words and designs to life through custom forms and textures, and I have a soft spot for geometric shapes like those found throughout his work.

  • With all of those shiny pixels, it's easy to lose sight of the people behind the screen who have molded and crafted the web into what it is today. Offscreen Magazine steps away from the digital realm and takes a look at the motivations, inspirations, lives and humanity of some of today's biggest web talents. The magazine is only released in good, old-fashioned print runs—the original retina display, with no plans to bring it to an ebook platform.

  • Designer Frank Chimero's personal website opens up with a thoughtful and lovely vertical parallax tour of his design thoughts, forming a sort of mission / manifesto.

  • Happily, Nixon finally acquired their brand domain name, and such an event deserves celebration and a polished redesign. Their last site was beautiful, but the new interface takes the best of the old and adds friendlier function. The new minimalist site design keeps the focus on the product while highlighting lifestyle. The front page has become a friendly lookbook and the interior product and category pages make browsing to buy a breeze while capturing the story and details behind each product.

  • As we all know, many sites we interact with on the internet could use facelifts. Sometimes, when something works it can be difficult to see how much the user experience could improve. Vladimir Kudinov is on a mission to make the internet a better place. The Russian designer says "We can make the Internet better, I believe in it... We can show the world community and the way in terms of design and usability, and together we will change the usual apathy and make our lives better."

  • Over the years, Google has stepped up their game in the Google Doodles department. Originally a festive—if not slightly gimmicky logo replacement, the Doodles were just that—doodles. Some of the earliest examples seemed to fall victim to clip art and paint edits, but that's all in the past. Now we look forward to seeing what artistic creation Google will dream up next for their much-less-literal logo hybrids. Sometimes we're surprised by animation, other times it's a cheerful or artistic change that brings novelty or joy to a predictable experience.

  • Not only does the Dollar Shave Club promo video make us laugh, but their web site is pretty spiffy too. It reflects their business model quite well, showing a back-to-basics attitude through playful graphics, simple messages, and old-timey and weathered details. I'll let the video elaborate on their business pitch...

  • This infographic video comes to us from Fight for the Future, a non-profit organization helping organize the strike against the web censorship bills SOPA and PIPA.

    We've all grown accustomed enjoying the internet as a free and open marketplace of ideas, information and imagery, but the SOPA / PIPA bills could change our experience and access drastically. I'll let the video do the elaborating, but this will be a pivotal moment in history and for the future.
