Spicy No Spicy – Website

Creating a really great website for a restaurant has become somewhat of an art these days. We really appreciate what The First The Last have done here for Ukrainian restaurant, Spicy No Spicy. The restaurant itself has a very well considered interior design and one can immediately see the logic in having a website to match.

Great illustration, beautiful use of colour and a really nice cursor (who would have thought that would be something to mention!) make this site a really great example of a functional site that does its job incredibly well, while also being a joy to use and look at.

Is Japan Cool?

This project by Enjin an Birdman for ANA, a Japanese airline company, asks a question we probably know the answer to: Is Japan Cool? (Yes, of course it is!) and answers it in a really fun way. This website, which is all about the beauty and importance of craftsmanship in Japanese culture, allows users to upload an image of themselves, then create their own samurai avatar, using an online tool. Once it’s done, they can then download the schematics and print their creation on a 3D printer.

Is Japan cool? Most definitely! Even more so than before!

Patagonia – The Blue Heart of Europe

Patagonia is a brand known for taking responsibility. They’ve made doing good and giving back a part of the brand from the very beginning. Here, we’re sharing one of their latest projects: The Blue Heart of Europe – a website which raises awareness about Europe’s threatened rivers and gives people something to rally behind and support. We love the work done by Upperquad on this!

Not only is this a great site to interact with and use, it’s a really interesting way that Patagonia is both doing good and representing itself as a brand. On every page, you see the Patagonia logo, but instead of throwing it in your face or trying to shove product down your threat, it doesn’t try too hard. And this is what makes Patagonia such a beloved brand throughout the world.

Good work for a good cause – what could be better?

Niika – Website

Niika is a digital design and branding studio from Australia with a website that shows off their talents to great effect! From great web design through to 3D objects and some really fun scrolling techniques – this site has it all.

It’s always so much fun watching people at the peak of their powers flex their creative muscles and this site really is no exception. Take a look at the site right over here.

GROWx – Website

Such a gorgeous, clean website for a great cause. GROWx is an urban farming start up based in Amsterdam. We love the use of photography, typography and scrolling effects.

It’s really interesting to see how traditional design principles can start applying to websites – and the more we see, the more we love!

Ninja Tune – Website

We really love this minimalist site for Ninja Tune. As an independent record label, they focus on high quality music they really believe in. To mark 2017’s releases they created this really fun website, which marks each release for the year.

Not only is the site a beauty to behold, the music is great too. Who knows, you might even find something you like!
