Spartans vs Hipsters
The Belgium Creative agency Epic has designed a fun multiplayer and cross device game. Users act as the "ruthless" Spartans out to kill the "cuddly" Hipsters who are threatening to "hipsterrify" mankind. The game is creative and the concept well designed.
Annemieke van der Hoek
At Fueled, we're constantly on the lookout for gifted designers and so, we're constantly looking through digital portfolios. Annemieke van der Hoek, a Dutch webdesigner and front-end developer, has a portfolio that is a breath of fresh air. Her work is outstanding and the site a pleasure to explore. We like the color scheme, interesting navigation, and responsive design.
FH Studio produces media for brands, big and small. While the site is simple and interactive, the real inspiration here is the incredible content. Although the site isn't that easy to navigate, you'll want to spend time here.
Someone once told us that if you're from St. Louis, you say you're from St. Louis- not Missouri. But what about Springfield, the third largest city in the state? Great things are brewing in Springfield by the looks of Mostly Serious. The company "builds beautiful online properties, from conception to construction to continual upkeep." We really admire the site's sharp images and great SEO. It's easy and clean.
