Cut & Taste is a food blog that I write with friends. Featured on The Huffington Post and 3 times on Smashing Magazine, including their most popular post of the year, Web Design Trends For 2009.
Damn, Cut & Taste looks totally sick. Wasn’t the last design fucking awesome too?
QN5 Music is an independent record label. Played on MTV, BET, ESPN, VH1. Mentioned in Rolling Stone, NY Times, Spin, XXL, The Source. Over 10 million plays logged on Last.fm, over 8 million views on YouTube. 100% independent.
In 2008, I quit my design agency job to completely rework QN5’s website from the ground up. We’re crafting the most community-focused record label site: a home for our talented artists & our amazing fans to connect.
Featured twice on Smashing Magazine: Website Archives Design: Good Practices and Examples + Horizontal Navigation Menus: Trends, Patterns, and Best Practices and other design collections: 25 Beautiful Comment Designs (Vandelay Design) 40 Excellent Blog Designs (Six Revisions, part of Smashing Magazine network).
All indie labels, the new QN5.com is now your new goal. Beautiful design + community focus.
It is truly stunning. Visually appealing, clean, very functional (I love the music and video sections!) and easy to navigate. QN5 constantly lead the way for other record labels, and not just musically. This is a huge brag.
Wow. Just wow, folks. Even if it weren’t affiliated with the finest label on the planet, it would still be pretty awesome. The design and the functionality of the whole thing has me in awe. I thought that QN5 couldn’t get any better. Never again will I assume such foolish nonsense.
QN5.com is my new reference site. love a lot of the details.
This is a really sharp looking site design, it’s pixel perfect in it’s details and looks really polished. The artist detail pages are probably my favorite part of the site, it’s really rich and deep with content and the layout really plays up the depth of media on the site. This site has a ton of content and it’s all packed into a nice sleek design.
This site touches my geeky soul. The audio player is. just. sick. I love that there is no lightboxes or FLASH! Chris, sir, you’re nasty… and you can quote me on that.
neat focus is where I handle business: My friends and I design interfaces, build websites & craft user experiences. We’ve worked with small businesses, bootstrapped teams, VC-funded startups & Fortune 500 corporations. And we’re hungry for more.
Been Said is a blog I started in 2006 to share interesting quotes. It’s featured in several design collections, including 45 Beautiful and Creative WordPress Designs by Six Revisions (part of the Smashing Magazine network).
