“Pownce is a way to send messages, files, links, and events to your friends“.
We have all seen sites that are designed with huge footers (cough cough) but Pownce put a nice spin on their design with their over sized header. It emphasizes the branding so much, by the contrast put on the logo. An elegant two tone stunner, nice work Pownce.

“Hot Meteor is a media firm specializing in web, print, and branding materials. All of our work is created with the individual in mind but perfect for massÃ‚Â consumption“.
Hot Meteor have a real raw organized and yet a slightly edgy streak to their style. They definitely pull their own design off very well indeed. From their design you can tell they really love playing with typography as their are quite a few fonts surrounding the content. It works well and has a bit of edge. Fantastic job Hot Meteor.
Warm Hearts was designed by ttcadvertising.
“Palliative Caregivers Sudbury/Manitoulin is a non-profit agency providing end of life support and compassionate care for terminally ill clients and their families in our community“.
Warm Hearts boasts such a striking design for a great charity. I think the real beauty in this design is the detail. Take the site’s background for instance, it is such a divine pattern and really polishes the design up. The second fundamental thing the designers have worked very well with is the attention to detail in the colors. I think it’s safe to say that all these spectacular colors work very well together. And I love are the stock photographs. Again these photographs are well suited and add alot of feeling to each page. Indeed some excellent work Warm Hearts.
I have been meaning to add Veerle’s award winning blog for some time now, but only felt the need to add her blog for inclusion now. The reason being is I was trying to think of new ways to describe what a masterpiece she has built but ended up rehashing what everybody else said, regarding the illustrations, color scheme, excellent attention to detail etc etc. So I don’t think words are appropriate to showcase Veerle’s Blog, just check it out.
