167 / INTERACTIVE PORTFOLIOS AND WEBSITES
One section of Fili’s site is dedicated to her food-packaging designs. In a traditional
print presentation, segues between cracker tins (top), margarita mixes and salts
(above), logos, and restaurant signs would be awkward, but on a website, these
transitions become seamless, and the designs hold together perfectly.

white background. The name of the client appears in small type above the image.

/ Building Design Portfolios
Skolos-Wedell’s website is very engaging. While it loads, spinning roulette wheels roll
onto the page (above). Each wheel has eight thumbnail tabs that feature work from the
area the wheel represents, such as poster design, product photography, graphic design,
and photo illustration. After these images have loaded, a fifth wheel containing general
categories such as awards, clients, contact information, teaching, and lectures spins
into the center.

171 / INTERACTIVE PORTFOLIOS AND WEBSITES
One of the most exciting things about this website is the format—its kinetic nature
differentiates the site from the vertical and horizontal grids that dominate the Web.
And since there are no layers or subcategories, viewers never get lost. Users simply
click on a thumbnail option to cause the subject to spin into the forefront and open.
The purity of the design gives it a certain strength.
