Design, uninterrupted #54

August 5th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of Set in a monochrome theme with strong dominating black elements, it uses color sparingly to highlight the latest project and provide rollover indication on the rest of the portfolio thumbnails. The portfolio takes the main stage, with a spartan header that features the bare minimum of information about the designer, and no footer at all.

An unusual four-column layout gives an impression of a random positioning. However, note the cross-column horizontal alignment of elements in the first and third column. The “latest project” thumbnail in the fourth column is top-aligned with its counterpart in the second column, and has larger height to balance the visual weight that would otherwise be off-center since the last column has only one element.
