If you’ve read my Site of the Day reviews, you know by now that I love it when a website design breaks with convention. And while this portfolio site for a Japanese web design agency ignores the typical layout scheme, I actually love it for another rule-breaking reason. Simply put, the style of this site resonates perfectly with the current design styles that are popular, and yet it breaks away from them in many ways. You’ll find a single-page structure, drop-shadow type, charts and graphs, duotone images and other trendy elements all mashed up together. Frankly, the site is just gorgeous and I love it.
