Kickass website of the week

This is one of  the best side projects I’ve seen in a while. While it seems like most designers these days are keen on using their spare time on ridiculous “re-branding” projects for corporations like Facebook and Microsoft, it’s refreshing to see it being used to create something truly unique like The Message is Medium Rare. It’s a side project that documents eating a burger at a different establishment in the San Francisco area every week for a year. The website itself is simple, clean and contains some really beautiful photography (considering the subject is burgers). Each burger photo is accompanied by a review of the burger (and often the establishment that makes it) that is well-written and even has a metaphoric creative lesson at the end. Kudos to MINE, the design studio behind the site.

NYC ads

Some nice ads for nycgo.com from designer Willy Wong. They’re very minimal and eye-catching, and I love the color schemes.

The Pattern Library

I’m not sure if I would actually ever use one of these patterns in a website, but it’s fun to scroll through and see them all at full-screen size. Plus they’re free to download and you can submit your own to share. Nice. [thepatternlibrary.com]

Not really a separate website in and of itself, but a nicely-designed (and interesting) page put out by Frog Design

Badass hot sauce packaging

I’m loving this old school ‘Hawt Sauce’ artwork and packaging from UK-based Telegramme Studio. I hope the actual sauce lives up to its sweet packaging.
