Standout Series v:2wo

August 12, 2008

Welcome back to the standout series again. I came across our next standout browsing around wordpress. BXC Branding Advertising and Design is a California based company that seems like its a fun place to be and to have work done by. They are deeply rooted in the surf community and the down-loadable portfolio is impeccable. The branding is fun yet clean and refined. One thing i noted about the portfolio is it’s size. As soon as I thought I had seen it all there was more, most of it being wonderful work. Their website also has an interestingly fun layout, breaking away from the mold of design companies with lots of busy flashy web presences. They also use the brands they create every effectively. Round of applause to BXC

Welcome back, or nice to meet you.  I’ve decided to start a new series devoted to the standout pages/designers/fonts/photographers that I see. Something unique… truly unique that grabs my attention and holds it. These days it is rare to stay at a page for more than a few seconds but i spent at least 15 min poking around and admiring the interface. So to kick it off we begin the series with OurType. OurType is not only a great site for font viewing but the site design is fresh, stylistic and most of all… it’s entertaining. Designed by group94 a Belgian based flasah and web developer (who also has an interesting, yet confusing web site), OurType is the brainchild of Fred Smeijers, who has been a belgian type designer for over twenty years. Play around in the try section for a while. You might even buy something. The typefaces are clean, contemporary and interestingly unique. If you have any suggestions for the standout series I’m think about doing it on a weekly basis.
