A different take on stock image search

One of the designers I work with sent me a link to this new Japanese stock photo site. It is an interesting new take on this old genre that is a grind for anyone in advertising. You view the images in a mosaic format where they slowly scroll up the screen or you can switch to more traditional thumbnail layout. This is the kind of thinking and innovation I wish we would see out of Corbis or GettyOne. Maybe it’s like cell phones where the Japanese get the cool stuff first and we will see it in three years.
