Design, uninterrupted #35

June 4th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of A warm, unique and memorable illustration highlighted by soft drop shadows is the main design element. A simple navigation menu along the top edge borrows some of the saturated colors from the stockings to separate between the three menu elements. The playful tone set by the main illustration continues in the header typography, with handwritten ligatures and a tree sprout projecting from the letter “o”. Custom framed portfolio thumbnails blend beautifully with the autumn green background which uses horizontal gradient to breath some life into the surrounding white space. Combined together, the design elements create an elegant and lasting impression.
