I am looking for some excellent examples of corporate web sites that
differentiate themselves from the standard format that most seem to
use at the moment (columns of text and a few images). It seems that
most corporate sites, for one reason or another, are very much the
same, both visually, structurally and in terms of the user
experience. They are not bad, but not particularly good either, they
are nice, safe and secure. This sameness opens for innovation within
the area of user experience and I am looking out for those that
manage this well.

More particularly, I am looking for some examples that use
storytelling principles, or manage to achieve user engagement of a
high standard, or which provide a particularly good user experience.

Any suggestions?

Two recent reports on excellence in corporate websites are the Nielsen
Norman Group's "Intranet Design Annual"
http://www.nngroup.com/reports/intranet/design/ ($148) and Avenue
A/Razorfish's "Corporate Intranet Best Practices Report"
http://www.avenuea-razorfish.com/reports/regReport_popup.html (free,
though you have to register).
