Design, uninterrupted #12

April 9th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of Infinitum, the online portfolio of James Li – who designed and developed featured in the very first post of the “Design, uninterrupted” series. Infinitum uses a simple color scheme which can be found on a number of other portfolio sites – dark gray foreground on off-white background with consistent use of dark orange for headers and links. The main page features few of the portfolio highlights, leaving enough white space around the elements to prevent overcrowding of the content. The navigation menu and section headers use a custom font which can benefit from better pixel grid alignment to prevent blurriness around vertical stems. The footer section is a slightly odd duck here – while it does not have any background differentiation from the rest of the page, it breaks the main column grid and uses different separators around it.
