    Apologies for being somewhat off topic, but Bernardes Jacobsen’s website is very good (click on the link provided at the top of the page). Anyone know who designed it or how it was designed?

    incredibly trivial and in now adequate or related to the context given by overseas containers.

    the concept is interesting and I really like it, but too many people have done this before, I mean,, it´s not original, just a copy, maybe out of date.

    Yes, it´s not original.

    in fact, something in that way was already made, also in Brazil, at the 3rd Mercosul Biennal in 2001 in Porto Alegre. And it wasn’t approved by public, which complained about warmness inside the containers.

    for Jhawkred website question above. It was built in flash, and yes it is very well orginized. Flash is a little gimmicky though and the fancier sites take longer to load/view. I’m sure the concept could be applied to a dreamweaver site as well with a flash button inserted for the navigation feature.
