The image above is a small snippet from the Allyourprey website. The website is flash based and uses a very simple style and layout but is very original in its design. I think the animations are very clever in the way you shift and scroll through the various images on the site.

The above is a photograph of a sculpture made simply by cutting carefully into a pad of multicoloured bits of paper. I think it is simple but very beautiful and ornate. Here is the website showing how its done.

The United colors of Benetton is a well know Italian clothes company. Despite clothing being there knish market they have adopted a somewhat strange advertising scheme. They have chosen to use shock tactics to get their brand known, and they haven’t done this lightly. Addressing subjects such as AIDs, sex and racism in a shocking manner there ads often hit the news, not only making them controversial but effective. Above is an example of one of the advertisements. This picture isn’t often one we see and the blood and the pure realism makes it shocking but despite this Benetton used this as an image for there billboard ad’s.

This is a piece of work by the French artist Christophe Huet. His particular skill is in the manipulation of photography to create surreal but very realistic outcomes such as the one above. I really like his work because despite is showing the impossible the level of realism is astounding. This means his work can have great shock factor. An example of this is in his AIDS awareness campaign posters. These can be seen on his website as well as a lot of advertising work he has done for companies such as Motorola and Sony.

I came across the elmwood website while searching for examples of design consultancy’s. I love the use of bold typography mixed with simple striking photography that has gone into making this website. Built using flash it animates as smooth as it looks and gives the user a simple interface that allows them to find information quickly and efficiently. This is easily one of the best examples of flash design I have seen in a long time.
