Design, uninterrupted #111

December 9th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of An attractive single-page design features a strong balance around the center vertical axis, clean typography with a number of embedded fonts and noise textures that help break the monotonicity of large dark header and footer sections. Light sepia is used throughout the main section for background, decorative elements and text styling.

Note how the desaturated red from the main logo is used sparingly for the two contact links and the follow-me-on-Twitter link in the footer. Also note the simple yet effective drop-shadow rollover effects on the portfolio thumbnails and the off-by-one translucent text shadow around the text sections to improve readability.
