"beauty in unusual circumstances comes easily to the camera of kerstin zu pan, one of berlin's most original photographers. her photos are moments amid stories - playful wild stories that leave the reviewer guessing. her work is expressive, ebulliant, and strange. there is always more here than is apparent at first glance."

remember that 1999 diesel campaign with nuns wearing denim or that old woman grabbing a passed out drunken man's crotch. erwin olaf was behind the flash. since the 80s olaf has put together a collection of masterpieces that will no doubt leave you a lifelong impression. here are a few of my favorites but his portfolio is a must-see! - scratch that, a must-live! thanks sean

this site takes traditional layout design and integrates it in flash. I am not talking about your usual flash + html site, this one is a full blown html free flash site. the preloader, the loading effects, the integrated radio station, the fade-out overlay menu option, the designers integrated everything with tact. the overall site just needs some navigability tweaks and it can convert any not-ready-for-flash-htmler into a flash junkie.
