Nobody likes it when things going wrong. When it comes to websites when something goes wrong, you are never responsible. Twitter brought us the fail whale, a wonderful illustration to display when the site was barfing. Then came the quirky Tumblrbot. Workfu has taken those mythical creatures, wrapped them in leather and stiching and batted them out of the park. Here’s a link for you to try out and see what I mean about this stunning concept behind 404′s and no search results.

The descriptions are also inconsistent. Clicking on yes please or selecting no thanks.

The thumb keyboard concept is great, I have no end of trouble with my HTC Desire HD, despite not having the problem with the same UI on the Hero prior.

To me it doesn’t need to be a permanent feature on the keyboard.
Tribal DDB created an engrossing email campaign for Canada Travel put together this viral email which requires engagement from the user to get to the call to action. A blend of stunning illustration and wonderful logic made this an obvious choice for the Webby Awards.
See how New Zealand based agency Aim Proximity solved the problems Tower Insurance were having with their email marketing campaigns sending to purchased data lists mixing common email client settings with a fun game.
