Build is a one man London based Graphic Design studio which prides itself on its craft-like approach to print. The Build portfolio is hands down one of the greatest websites I've encountered in my life. The amazing attention to details, the overwhelming simplicity, the lovely shades, the intuitive and unusual navigation, the large product photos. This is one outstanding site that every web designer should take a look at. And there's no Flash to be seen anywhere.

Online portfolio of Norwegian graphic designer Gjermund Rein Gustavsen and his studio Divensis Design. I know from experience that Gjermund is a very talented and determined designer who pays a lot of attention to the very smallest details. His brand new portfolio is a treat to behold, and my only issue
with his site is the heavy load of the background image and logo is fixed. Go Gjermund!

Webdesigner superman Jason Santa Maria is back with a "rethinking" of his personal portfolio site. You probably all know his work by now, so I don't need to tell you that this site is great, just like everything else he turns his mind to. This is all about information, and presenting it perfectly.

Here's a one-of-a-kind single page portfolio. It's all laid out as one expanding horisontal list of works on display. The navigation works really well and the images are of a high enough quality to make us really drool over his designs. I'm missing permalinks to each project, though. And I would love to be able to right click the images and save them in my "graphical inspiration" folder.

Laurent Baumann (aka AveTenebrae) is a french graphic designer, working in a press agency and doing some icon design during his free time. Although his portfolio site has been around for some time, I just recently rediscovered it as I was collecting the names and portfolios of great icon designer. I think this site definitely deserves some linkage as it is a great example of how to make a site that oozes of Mac. I mean that in a good way. Notice the narrow column, the delicious graphics, the drop shadow and the incredible icons.

Marcus Eriksson is back with another redesign of Subdisc. It came out a couple of months ago and managed to slip past my radar. This time it's all about crystal sharp photography in a smooth flash portfolio. This is crisp and excellent stuff once again from Marcus.

This site may be a little on the slim side for some of my regular readers. For me, however, this one appears to be a tiny near perfect delicacy. The yummy icons with their slick transitions make me focus on the simplicity. I like it a lot.

Sticking with the minimalist agenda of the previous version, Sam's latest portfolio redesign is one of the cleanest and most understated I've seen. Very clean and very white, reminiscent of something out of THX 1138. It's elegant, very effective and brands the designer clearly.

Volll is a small European atelier for design and development based in Budapest, Hungary. The scrolling of this site is a good example of how to make it fun to find your way around a portfolio. I love the nice touch with the animated details on mouseclick. Cute, friendly and fun.

Our compadres over at Tank Design just launched their spiffy new Flashfolio. Slick transitions, clean surfaces and lots of whitespace add to the Scandinavian/Norwegian identity of the bureau. Their work deservers a closer look, of course. The only thing I'm not feeling about this one is the rather large download. But that shouldn't be a problem to most of their visitors.
