New photo albums and deja vu

I finally got around to posting some stuff into new photo albums, accessible at top right.  One album is from a vacation earlier this year in Portland, Oregon.  The other is some screens from websites that were produced under my direction, at both PUMA and Keds.

Earlier this week, I saw some interesting tags in David Armano’s RSS feed.  One was for Crispin Porter + Bogusky sites – some of the best work being done today.  Another was for the new US version.

I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between Nike’s new US home page and the one I implemented for PUMA three years ago.  Technologies (e.g. Flash, scripting) have evolved a lot since then, but the core businesses remain quite similar, which drives similarity in information architecture.

Take a look – what do you think?
