Bruno Coulais 11/19/03 Description:
a site about French movie music composer Bruno Coulais (Flash)
At first, I thought it was Bruno Coulais' own site about his work as a movie music composer. As it turns out, it appears instead to be tribute to the composer, done by French web creative and freelance art director Frank Borsato.

Not surprising that the navigation rests on the belly of Splif's big orange balloon. The "artwork" section includes the "junkyard" of sketches and fast drawings, "inkings," both rough and monocromatic, and colorful hand-drawn illustrations – dozens of each. There's 7 other sub-sections/pages including 3D work and cool doodles. If you're a designer or graphic artist, you'll probably enjoy the "themas" section. The nav-balloon leads to other stuff too. Impressive site design and works... (renders best in IE) [finelayout.com < Newstoday®]

Launched just over a year ago, today's pick is part of a digitisation project meant for people to "learn from and enjoy" while preserving the jewels of Wales' cultural history for future generations. Nicely organized and comprehensive in scope...
