Needed some clues on coding my navbar with images and rollovers etc. and this tutorial looks like it’s going to be pretty useful. Haven’t tried it yet though, see how it goes!]]>
The most recent version of my homepage.
It has developed a great deal since my original idea (to keep the site very simple whilst still using my own drawings and designs etc.). Here the drawings themselves have become what the concept of the design is; to present my own work not only by publishing it on the site, but also through the design of the pages as well.
I intend for the subsequent pages to have a very similar background to keep a sense of continuity throughout the whole site and to make sure it is clear each page is part of the same site.]]>
A few images stand out for me,
I especially like the second one because it seems to capture a very creative style without becoming over-complicated with endless drawings etc. The hand written text seems to do enough.
However, having said that I also really like the first one for the opposite reason!]]>
My original idea had been to keep the site very simple; a small motif that ran throughout the whole site alongside navigation buttons directing the viewer to each section. I had always intended to design the logo/motif myself.]]>
Take a look at the website for illustration agency Breed London.
The site itself is very simple and chic; I especially like the way the navigation bar just fades out of sight to allow the viewer to look at the images, instead of clicking through endless pages.
I’m particularly impressed by Neal Murren’s portfolio. I love his drawing style and his immaculate use of Photoshop combined with his own hand drawn images.]]>
