simple

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.
