Today’s post highlights the design of JordAndChan.com. Set in light brown and beige color scheme, the design overlays a number of watercolor ink stains (some of the fixed) on top of the noise background texture. The main section uses a simple two column layout, one for Jord and another for Chan. Each entry in the main section has a carefully arranged header with custom typography for the title, date, comment count and one-line summary sentence set in desaturated steel blue color. The footer continues the two column layout, embedding a Flickr gallery, category list and sparsely set archive sorted by year and month. With plenty of white space around the elements, large serif fonts for the headers and dark beige text color, the visitor’s eye is not overwhelmed by a rather large amount of text on the main page.
