Netdiver magazine (ISSN 1911-866X) is a design anywhere + digital culture magazine that uncovers, reviews and publishes outstanding work by the international community. Founded by editor Carole Guevin and "creative code officer" Jean-François Simard aka JF it is now in its tenth year. They love everything design and promote its value worldwide, and wish to inspire their readers from indie projects to portfolios exposing the creative class at work online and beyond.

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. This year they aimed to list 100 and just could not, so the 7th edition showcases 110 because Netdiver feel they gave their 110% best. Refresh your memory and (re)encounter new sources of design inspiration.
Below is a small selection. Go to the Netdiver Best of The Year 2008 gallery to see all 110.
