A few weeks ago Creative Review Magazine contacted me about doing a small piece in their February issue about my site The Grid System. I just received a copy they sent me (I couldn’t find one in NYC believe it or not) and I think they did a great job with the piece. I’m deeply honored that I was asked to be included in the pages of this quality magazine and want to thank the folks over at CR for asking me to participate.

My good friend Duane King and his uber-talented crew at BBDK have just launched a stunning new site for Italian glassware company Luigi Bormioli. I personally consider this site to be one of the best sites on the web in terms of design, typography, functionally and usability.
The design is ultra-clean and simple and the great use of white space makes it all feel very elegant and sophisticated. Designed on a simple grid, BBDK was able to create an eye pleasing layout that enhances the gorgeous photography. It’s all topped with a precise use of Gotham and Helvetica. How can you go wrong with those wonderful typefaces?
The site is extremely easy to navigate and the slight transitions and interaction points make the it a joy to use, and work harmoniously with the minimal design. This is an excellent example showing that it’s possible to create an engaging site without the use of Flash. Ian Coyle of Superheroes, who designed and developed the amazing ShopComposition site, worked with BBDK to develop the Bormioli site.
If this site isn’t recognized for it’s brilliance, then there is something really wrong with this world.

For the new year, Family has launched a new site along with new work, a store and a blog. These guys have been busy!
Super talented, ultra nice guy, and cofounder of Six studio, Darren shot me an email about the new look of his personal site Keeps Me Sane. Gorgeous and to think it’s all running on WordPress.
Minimalsites.com is an excellent collection of sites featuring a minimal design. Just what the doctor ordered. Ironically, the site design itself isn’t all that impressive.
My personal site has just been added.
