Netdiver Best of Year 09


Netdiver Best of the Year has now become a tradition; it is the culmination of revisiting a full year of design news and picking up which projects or websites that have impacted us most from the point of view of their originality, quality and inspirational value.

Releasing the new yearly edition is always a thrill. We hope you enjoy our 8th edition as we do.


Netdiver Best of Year 08


Netdiver Best of the Year is always a long awaited release of which projects and whose talents have made a strong and lasting impression in the previous year.

Now in its 7th edition, the crop of the year is for us, the top of the year. Hope you agree. Refresh your memory and (re)encounter new sources of design inspiration.


Netdiver Best of Year 07


Netdiver Best of the Year are more than a yearly retrospective - or a trendy compendium. We share the same space as TIME Best of the Year (via Google) and for an online sub-culture design magazine, we think that's pretty awesome.

Review our 100 best of the best! These folks whatever their disciplines create memorable and dazzling projects, taking us to uncharted territories where imagination, skill, talent abide - inciting us to keep pushing forward.
