I'm overly fond of bright, whimsical and well designed personal sites — the kind that inspire you and draw you in to explore with no one section the same as the other. Remember those days? When the web was still much more freeform rather than a blog template? Add to the mix a healthy sense of humor, a unique identity and you have the work of one Arthur Jones, also known as Gorillasuit. Currently on the Monster Loteria Tour, showcasing the videos of Jones and Jim Finn, the work coming out of Gorillasuit is fantastic. Take for instance, the paint-by-numbers pledge premiums for This American Life on WBEZ or the gut-busting twistedness that is Magic Pants.
