Amazingly Well Done Site: The Vintage Aviator
Poking around and viewing hot examples of Drupal sites usually doesn’t turn up great design. But I just came across a Drupal site that is so well done, so gorgeous and such a delight to poke around in that I had to pass it along.
The Vintage Aviator is a New Zealand site that has very high production values and a retro design that is evocative of days gone by. From the backgrounds, to typefaces used, to the great photographs, I was impressed, but when I got to the Playing Sopwith and Spitfire video it made me sit straight up and say, “How did they shoot that video!“
Who are these guys? On their site they state, “Our customers are generally private collectors and museums. We are currently building aircraft and overhauling engines for customers in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA.” From the quality of all aspects of the imagery, video, representation of the planes and parts, I’ll bet they do a lot of business.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
