simple

23 03 2009

while working on my own informational design, i have noticed that the simplest design is what stands out for me. very clean lines, good use of negative space, not too much color….  

here are four different pages that i felt would be good lay outs for and information design piece..

Also on OBT Design‘s website I really enjoyed their logotype designs. They were very playful and looked like a lot of fun to design!

In class this week our “digital weekly” assignment was WHITE SPACE (or negative space)  which got me to realize when designing a website with a lot of information, it could be really difficult to not get cluttered. So while searching the web I began to appreciate the clean web sites that took advantage of negative space. One site I enjoyed looking through (and one that kept my attention and time) was OBT Design‘s web site (above image of home page). Very clear to the point, easy navigation, and no clutter!

 

This good use of negative space also carried through in there work…..

PEEPSHOW

19 10 2008

Great website! LOTS and LOTS to look at!

Go to PEEPSHOW, then click on “ENTER SITE”….

From there you will see plenty to look at. 

I really enjoyed looking at the animations, some of them are in the simplest form and still get the point across, others are more abstract and create some beautiful compositions.  

Over all just a really interesting site how the user navigates through the pages. I really like the idea of using the slides as different categories and pages. Very creative.





finding the beauty

The Sartorialist is a fashion blog that is just amazing! All the shots of the “models” are just random people in the streets of New York that happened to be dressed well and got a picture snapped of them. The pictures look great because of the lighting and the setting, it all just works! love it!





music to relax you…

23 09 2008

Listening to music always helps me relax, and also helps me clear my mind in order to really crack down on a project. The perfect background music for me is music that is soft, and easy listening, nothing load and distracting.  One of my best friends form back home is an amazing artist.  Im jealous of him in a way because he is just out doing his own thing, taking classes here and there, but ultimately just exploring what life has to offer and making good music.  His music in particular is GREAT relaxing background music.  His name is Jake Troth.  There is a recent blog that has his whole new album (BLIND CONTOURS) available to down load for free.  That’s right FREE MUSIC!!! So i just wanted to share this and hopefully you all like it as much as i do.

 





mind blowing!

I know a lot of people have probably seen this, (I saw it a few years ago in a chain email) but I still always find my self going to the site to see what is new.  These sidewalk chalk drawing are amazing to me! The skill and patients that must go into creating these works or art is crazy to me! Impact Lab has a lot more pictures of these illustrations.
