exploration of human behavior

you’ve heard the philosophical references on how life imitates a circle and the more mundane “what comes around goes around”. this neat little site, developed as an exploration of human behavior, uses a circle as a navigation tool. it’s very addictive and very intuitive.

their circular life

is it possible that apple discovered this little insight into human behavior and designed the ipod's circular navigation to appeal to us in a sub-conscience manner?

living with modern design

many people wonder how one could live with modern design. you've heard it...."it's too cold", "it doesn't feel like home", and "does anyone really live here".

this neat japanese site tries to place the user in the modern setting by using flash, good web design and most importantly, people. most modern design sites have plenty of pictures of furniture and architecture but few use people (or at least caricatures). desio uses the human factor to show that modern is definately livable...and in my opinion....the only way to live.

see for yourself.
