Design, uninterrupted #21

April 30th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of by Jessette Dayate. The background texture is reminiscent of the pattern left by the crayons on a pavement. This texture extends into the inset effect of the page header title, as well as the beautiful hand-drawn illustration of a girl sitting on a stack of crayons. The footer section uses illustrations as well – for the horizontal separator and the tweet decoration. If you reload the page, note the fade-in effects on the “Latest project” images.

The layout could use a little bit more alignment. The left edge of header section text hangs in between the two columns of the main content. And while the left edge of the “Latest project” images is aligned with the main content column, the right edge falls short.
