We here at Five O’Clock Media appreciate good design and development when we see it, so we have made a list of ten sites that we loved this summer, in no particular order.

Wing Cheng | Graphic and Web Designer

URL: http://www.wingcheng.com/
Why we picked it: This is one of the most unique portfolio designs I have seen to-date. We can really appreciate the effort that went into making sketches of each of the projects on his portfolio.

Brad Coleman | NASCAR #18 Nationwide Series Driver | Team JGR

URL: http://www.bradcoleman.us/
Designed By: Five O’Clock Media
Why we picked it: We don’t mean to toot our own horn. We picked this site since it is a great representation of social media being integrated fully into a web site, from the YouTube video to the Twitter feeds on just about every page.

Goin Nutty

URL: http://www.goinnutty.com/
Why we picked it: We love the simplicity of this great web site for an iPhone app. Provides big screens of the app and the same design from the game is carried over into a spacious interface. Only thing is that it’s missing is the social media element.

K•Swiss Tubes

Why we picked it: Yes it is a flash site, and it is also a very nice use of the tool. We love the simplicity of the motion and navigation of this site, using the keyboard or mouse to navigate this site is a breeze. It would be nice to see this done with social media integration and with Javascript.

relogik.com | Design & innovation | Showcase of Damjan Stankovic

Why we picked it: Neat products and excellent presentation. Social Media is there; however, it is very weak on this web site. Overall, we love the creativity of these products and the web site.


Sharpie® Communities

URL: http://www.sharpieuncapped.com/
Why we picked it: Great example of social media integration and an excellent design to go with. We use Sharpies a lot here at Five O’Clock Media so why not support them on our blog?
