Design, uninterrupted #26

May 17th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of by Russ Maschmeyer. The saturated yellow color used as the background fill is offset by subtle gradient transitions using darker yellow towards the edges; an extra background layer of texture noise and random smudges adds a welcome relief as well. Strong red reinforces the vibrant choice of colors – it is used as the link foreground color and throughout the various visual elements in the site header, logo and sidebar. The portfolio slideshow embedded in the main page features an attractive layout that highlights the design itself, as well as Russ’s role in the project.
