The top spot this week goes to the weblog and portfolio of Szabolcs Bakos a small-town Hungary web designer. Bold use of color, typography and just a smashing user interface, love this site. NewConcept.hu is also doing a decent job of leveraging the ExpressionEngine publishing platform.

A nostalgic flash animated website, this one from the Symphony gallery, where they had this to say about it…

“Since Symphony is based in XML, it’s the perfect tool to drive a Flash site. The band can add news, shows, albums and songs all through the Symphony back-end. All the content is then formatted into XML documents that are loaded dynamically by Flash. I can’t think of any CMS in existence that would have allowed me to do this as quickly and cleanly as Symphony did.” A nice testimonial for flash dev’s.

This seems to be the week for new WordPress sites. This one, eight6 is for a one-man design studio in Detroit, founded in ‘98 by Noel Jackson. One possible reason for all of the new WordPress sites is the milestone release of version 2.5+ back on March, 29th.
