Another Norwegian only site, this time for a two person creative web/photo/print agency. I like the little details, and some of the work in their portfolio is outstanding.

Time for another Norwegian studio portfolio. This time it's a digital advertising/production agency located in Oslo. I came across this as Magne Hage, a childhood friend of mine from Skien, sent me a tip about the new site. Magne is their 3D animator, and as far as I can tell, a truly skilled one at that, too. I really like the way The Voyagers are focussing on creating a story and "universe" around their portfolio. It works very well, even though I think they're using a bit too much Flash when they shouldn't.

The personal blog of two Norwegian students currently attending Sweden's world renowned Hyper Island. This kind of stuff makes me proud of saying that I'm Norwegian. Truly one of a kind. The use of illustrations in the design works perfectly, and the colors are priceless. All I can say is AWESOM-O.

Matt Hamm is a Freelance Web Designer from Farnham, Surrey, UK. The welcome illustration, combined with the color scheme made this one stand out from the crowd, imho.

Here's a site in Norwegian only to showcase the beta CMS Apilot from Funkpilot and Rocking Chair. Those clouds, that rocket and the overall colours are priceless.

The tumblelog of Garrett Murray recently got a visual overhaul. You can tell that this guys likes his Macs just by looking at the visuals. I'm not saying that he's copying Apple's designs, most definitely not. I'm just saying that he's showing the same kind of attention to little graphics and typographic details. I'm also saying that I love how this design turned out. It's a simple tumblelog that comes out on top, and I'm diggin' it.

Mr. Doob just started working for Hi-ReS!, which in turn brought my attention to his blog/portfolio, which is quite rad. The blog is a beauty and the works on display show off some of the best Flash work I've ever seen. Especially being just one person. Impressive.

Adelaide South Australia based IT support specialists in Mac and Windows small business server. Their website isn't designed as a fantastic new layout or a completely unique idea. Instead, it's a direct approach with tabs, icons, etc. Instead of reinventing the weel, the designers have focussed their skills on the details. This one is done with great love and it shows. Very straight forward and very well done. Via Web Creme.

Grooveshark is a music-sharing community in which users listen to music for free online, download music, and earn free songs for sharing. The site interface for this app is lovely. This is the kind of site I would love to be able to say that I had designed myself. The graphics are so sharp, and the information so well laid out. Make sure to take a look at Grooveshark lite.
