Design, uninterrupted #172

April 7th, 2011

Today’s post highlights the design of It combines a number of attractive elements in a compact space, highlighting the attention to detail and not overloading the landing page with too many details. Each element is finely polished and precisely positioned, from consistent lighting on the 3D typographical elements with exaggerated perspective to overlapping geometrical primitives on the portfolio ticker. This is a central element and deserves a special praise, with its rich blue palette that is the perfect complimentary to the mahogany browns of the background. Note how this oversaturated element is mirrored in the much smaller icons in the right column, creating a vibrant yet consistent color palette. The playful Onetrick font completes the picture, bringing extra playfulness to the main section headers.
