Design, uninterrupted #87

October 21st, 2010

Today’s post highlights the visuals of Le28Thiers.Fr. A rich warm color palette of mahoganies and deep peaches, fine wooden textures and baroque illustrations create an aura of exclusivity and refinement. The eye is immediately drawn to the martini glass surrounded by ripe citrus fruit and green olives. Polished wooden texture with vanishing perspective, radial highlights and blurred reflection create an inviting three dimensional scene (that is unfortunately marred by the optically incorrect reflection of the glass stem).

The menu slideshow whets the appetite by showing an attractive selection of dishes and drinks, with full size pictures shown in lightbox on clicking each item. The menu entries are also highlighted in other parts of the site, this time using a Flash-based clicker that features complex rollover effects that combine zooming, blurring and translucent description tooltips.
