Destroy Rock City   Lock this link...Send this link...
Destroy Rock City is a veteran of the web - we remember being wowed by an early revision years ago. This update compounds the effectiveness of the site's colourful illustrations, which animate beautifully and stand head and shoulders over other illustration based Flash sites.

Express Fashion   Lock this link...Send this link...
Covering familiar ground already well-trodden by other fashion sites, Express manages to pull a few neat tricks out of its hand-bag. The detachable menus work well and all navigational elements have a healthy elastic feel to them which makes the site fun to use. A sharp site that shows off the range well.

Memoirs of Hijiyama   Lock this link...Send this link...
An intense interpretation of writer Toyofumi Ogura's "A Paper Grave", an account of the bombing of Hiroshima. Dark distressed design delivered with DHTML belies this startling departure from the more ego-led personal spaces. It's refreshing for someone to try to deliver a message with their work.

N.A.S.A. 2.0   Lock this link...Send this link...
Truly new ways of navigating are rare these days, which is why this site's attempt stands out. The simple-to-use yet effective system moves with you as you interact with the site, giving you instant access to any section whilst also offering a handy helper guide whenever you need it.

Select from a variety of musical styles before proceeding to the composition area to lay down your latest sound and vision opus. Build up your track from the loops and stabs whilst visuals do the same developing a themed album cover to accompany your sounds.

Classic Motown   Lock this link...Send this link...
Proving that with careful planning, Flash-only sites can deliver a large amount of content effectively, this site from Kioken sidesteps some of the pitfalls they've been accused of falling into in the past. With a more readily intuitive design and less to confuse novices, this crafted site sets a new standard.

Nosepilot   Lock this link...Send this link...
To fully experience Nosepliot, free up about ten minutes, sit back and enjoy the show. A crossover of Czech and French animation styles, we challenge you to find anything like it on the web. A huge amount of effort and imagination has gone into this opus from its US animator, and there are not a Flash cliché in sight.
