Design, uninterrupted #115

December 20th, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of The light blue background of the main section is further accentuated by irregular blobs floating in the background to evoke the illusion of summer northern skies. The content is laid out in three columns with the auto-advance portfolio ticker dominating the top part of the page. I like the usage of dark turquoise for the hyperlinks, but the testimonial blurbs set in white foreground with barely discernible drop shadow are not very readable – neither in italics nor in all caps. Hand drawn illustration style is evident elsewhere on the page – from the rough sketched doodles behind the social links in the footer to the oversized illustration with an elephant with peanuts on its mind (move the mouse over). Browse other pages to see additional paper-fold animal illustrations (bird, butterfly and kangaroo).
