Among the websites that dominated 2013 include, but are not limited to:

  • Yoke – is a creative studio based in Melbourne and Bendigo. The Company offers extraordinary graphic design, web design, digital, branding and media services, the Company’s website on the other hand, offers an on-going slideshow of images showcasing the company logo [ Y ], easy to use in an in-your-face-but-not-in-your-face way.
  • Fior di Latte Gelato – claims to be the best gelato in Boulder, Colorado. The website offers appetizing images of ice cream on cones, with odd combinations of ingredients like strawberry and balsamic, along with saffron and almonds to spice things up.
  • MailChimp Annual Report – although not an all year round design, the MailChimp Annual Report for 2012 offers a “punny” way to look back at what its previous year had to offer. The report consists of engaging visuals to help alleviate the boredom by reviewing the content. Transitions of colors, and moving graphics, the report utilized the never ending page and ended with a chimp saying thanks for another amazing year.
