Design, uninterrupted #11

April 7th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of A dark and slightly textured background is offset with a vibrant color palette of header and footer that extends the main logo into the site design. Note how the navigation menu grows from the header illustration and is further accented by the separator lines that blend with the illustration as well. The navigation menu, section headers and the main copyright text use a custom font and manual kerning; due to the current limitations of browser font engines the site uses images instead of plain text. Beveled separators blend well into the dark background, and the main content is grid aligned across the sections – except the second column of “what we can do” that aims to create a tighter text section. To bring the final polishing touch, the design adds background highlights around the logo, below the portfolio slider and around the contact form.
