Incredibox is a interactive website that allows users to mix their own beatboxes using the skilled sounds of The Incredible Polo. The website is fun and super simple to use. You just drag and drop the types of sounds on the the beatboxer's t-shirt to add to the mix. Click on any of the beatboxers to remove their sound. The end effect is really enjoyable to experience.

Photographer Simon Hogsberg has created a beautiful, explorable, 100 meter image, of people crossing a railroad bridge. The project is called We're All Gonna Die. The subject of the photos are 178 pedestrians, photographed over 20 days in Berlin. The photos are stunning. You can't stop looking at the people. Some of the people clearly notice their picture being taken, and others are so lost in their thoughts that you can't help wondering what they are thinking about. I'm going back to look some more...

GE has a beautiful new interactive website to promote their Smart Grid innovations. The website is stunning, with intelligent interactive features like a print and play augmented reality Smart Grid. The forward thinking website reflects well on their forward thinking ideas about energy. GE has some intriguing ideas about integrating alternative power sources and smart meters into consumer's lives. They make a convincing argument by visualizing the potential impacts.
I have been admiring the artistic use of infographics in the AutoKratz Stay the Same video. It was directed by Laurie Thinot of Partizan Labs. The storyline is a little strange, but animation and flow are noteworthy. I was especially taken by the color pallet used. The dark, rich colors accentuate the illustrations and the old school projector effect. (Found through Motionographer).
I was reminded of Greg Washington's portfolio site today. I first saw it about 4 years ago, and to this day it remains one of my favorite portfolio examples. The main background for the site was Greg's hands and face squished up as if on a scanner. His breathing was reflected in the glass. The whole effect was just so unique and brave that I remember thinking - if I received this portfolio I would hire him immediately. Unfortunately the original site is no longer up but you can see some images and video of the website on Greg's Behance page.
If someone has a more interesting portfolio example, please send it in. I'm always looking to be impressed by portfolio sites.
