  1. Maadonna-list

    We stumbled on to the Maadonna website not long ago and I for one was baffled and entertained by it in equal measure. It has the sort of random graphics and obscure responsive actions to your cursor that comes from some clever coding that I/we will not be able to name or understand anytime soon and, in short, we were intrigued.

  2. Lego_lead

    Back in the good old days of yore children whiled away their afternoons in idol play, lost in their imaginations with nothing but bed sheets, twigs and a muddy pit at the back of the house as props for their elaborate role-playing. Kings waged wars, empires fell and everyone had to get cleaned up before tea. Then came Lego and the shape of play changed forever, so much so that those little coloured blocks and weekend afternoons will be linked in my mind forever.

  3. Sound-dictionary-list

    The Sound Word Index might just be the best idea you’ll hear about all week, nay, month. It has been brilliantly realised by two Royal College of Art grads, Blanche de Lasa and Stina Gromark, in an easily navigable site with the familiar, communication-happy graphics of a trusty dictionary. But this is no Queen’s English, “aardvark” to “zyzzyva” affair. This is the ultimate reference for a new onomatopoeic and emotive vocabulary that infuses our digital messages with “an expressive and resonating language.”

  4. These-americans-list

    While the debate continues about what infinite-scrolling image aggregation is doing to our cultural landscape, there are still destination sites to which an extraordinary amount of people subscribe where they know they will garner rare insight and context. One such stopping off place is American Suburb X which, since 2008, has archived the “massively relevant oats, dramatically sifting present and rapidly unfolding future” in photographs, and it is quite something.

  5. Okfocus-list

    What does the digital studio love-child of Ryder Internet Archeology Ripps and Jonathan Vingiano look like? OKFocus – a remarkably ingenious portfolio of web wonders and playfully professional design solutions for the most contemporary of internet thinkers.

  6. Prinlist

    It’s all very well talking of “the importance of good design” but it’s a term often used and understood in wooly ways. So it’s always refreshing to see an organisation put their money where their mouth is and set out what they see as the fundamentals – all the more so if that organisation is part of, oh I don’t know, the British Government.

  7. List-webby

    The main award season may have come and gone earlier this year in a flurry of breathless hype but it’s time to honour those who have done fantastic things online in the past 12 months. Now in its 16th year The Webbys may lack some of the gravitas of The Oscars or The Grammys, but they are a respected judge of who’s been brilliant in arguably the most significant cultural field of all.

    What do all of us have, few of us share and some handle better than others? Yes, that’s right germs. But also secrets and that universal appeal helps explain the stratospheric popularity of Frank Warren’s PostSecret blog, where he invites people to submit their deepest darkest pearlers anonymously. He’s received hundreds of thousands of them to date ranging from the whimsical to the life-altering. As with the best examples of this kind of project it builds up to something much bigger than the sum of its parts – in this instance a fascinating study of people, their relationships and the ways in which they construct their own realities.
