Design, uninterrupted #117

December 23rd, 2010

Today’s post highlights the design of the portfolio page of by AurĂ©lien Foutoyet. Different shades of sepia for are used for intricate background textures and illustrations, as well as the main body text and header sections. The color palette is completed with orange-brown range used for hyperlinks and some of the headers, along with a few splashed of vivid colors on social icons in the site header and footer.

The four-column grid is preserved throughout the entire page, with some sections spanning two or four columns at a time. Note the perfectly centered content balance to preserve the visual weight, and careful usage of inline images and oversized section separators to break the moderately large text sections into quickly scannable pieces. As an extra visual treat, move the mouse over the different visual elements in the inspiration and social sections.
