“WOW” Sites

Web design amazes me. I think because of how new it is, and whats never been uncovered, its almost limitless to what you can do or think up. A good programmer will research forever to figure out how to manipulate a program in order to achieve an Art Directors dream, and make that amazing navigational experience come to life.

There is so much involved in the creation of these sites, taking into consideration the target user, and their equipment, tolerance, technical ability and then whats actually possible with design that hasn’t yet been done, and finally whats possible in the navigation ( or sites actual movement) that has yet to be accomplished.

Sensi Soft, which is a company in the classified business market had a dream that came together beautifully. It was carefully executed by the Endorfine agency who hired web guru / illustrator / designer Pawel Nolbert ( Who is also better known as HELLO COLOR!)

The end product is fascinating, click here to see, and make sure to click the right arrow to take a journey through the world, and through time…



is Google in trouble?

Apparently some of Googles former engineers and programmers have developed the “David” for Googliath, and named it Cuil ( Pronounced COOL ) We’ll see if she holds up, for starters the layout of the searched items are pretty cuil.

Heckler Design Desk

Being an Imac owner myself, I look for clean lines, and precision in a desk to house it. While, my second monitor wouldnt fit on this beautiful design by Heckler, im sure many would agree that its the perfect desk for an all in one.

The rear shelf will house all your cords, drives, etc and even has laser cut “cord wraps” to keep everything tidy, and locked in. Not bad for under $700.00

Get yours at Heckler.

DeWalt 16 nail gun

This puppy can stick a 6-D nail into a 2×4 from 200 yards. Meaning you can chill in a lawn chair and snap together a dog house. Just make sure you’re wearing Kevlar and a bullet proof eye mask.

Created by David Wiggins, Dave says, “I’d just picked up a new (to me) M-16 and was in the process of fixing it up a little. It needed new furniture anyway, so I sourced the safety yellow stock, guard, and grip. Then, I went down to the DeWalt factory service place a few miles from the house to get a sticker. There, I saw they had brand new battery casings, so I picked up one of those too. I got home, found a short magazine , and got to work.

I traced an approximation of the size hole I’d need in the top of the plastic casing, and slowly dremeled away the plastic I didn’t need. Once done, I epoxied the magazine body into the hole and quickly assembled everything so that I could make sure it all looked right before the epoxy set up. Once the epoxy cured, I took the mag back apart, cleaned up some of the bigger resin boogers, and then masked the top of the mag and hit it w/ some mil-spec glossy black coating (aka Krylon).”
