As I surfed through the internet looking for interesting websites that really caught my attention, as well as website that use features such as layout, design, colors…etc. in a very interesting and unique ways, I stumbled on few website that I thought are worth sharing with my readers.
1. This is one of the websites that caught my attention:
It is a website of a web/graphic designer: Melissa Hie. The website has a very sleek modern design. Although the content may be lacking some information, I think it is a great example of a successfully designed website. Being a website of a web/graphic designer, it is very important that the creator sets it as example for future clients. The website is basically made of one page with tabs which leads to different sections in the website. Navigating through this website is very interesting as the section slides to a different section of the webpage. The creator chose to set one color for each page/tab which also go well together. She included a short biography, samples of her work (which if clicked will take you to the real website), and her contact information.
2. The second website I chose to write about in this post is a very twisted website, called Nobody’s Here:
The second website I chose to write about in this post is a very twisted website. As you open then website you see the silhouette illustration of a man sitting in front of his computer with words on the right. As you point your cursor on the words a phrase appears on the left side as if someone is typing it, and if you click on the word it takes you to another page that has a few paragraphs talking about the particular word. For example, if I click on the word “alive”, it takes me to this page:
…and in order to go back to the homepage we have to click on the illustrated “I”.
The reason this website really caught my attention is because at first I had no idea what the website’s main function was, so I started playing around the website and going to different pages and reading what’s written. I believe the person who created this website has a very unique was to attract the attention of the viewer. Even though the website is extremely plain, with a white background, I still found it very interesting.
3. The third website I found interesting is also a portfolio website by the Swiths interactive group:
This website is a portfolio of two young men, one is a web designer/designer/coder and the other one is a programmer. The most interesting aspect of this website is the design; it looks like a desk with papers on it, and if you scroll down to the bottom you will find feet which represent the feet of the person sitting in front of the desk or the viewer. The colors of this website is very light and very easy to the eye. We can see the the website shows that the designer payed attention to some little details like the roll-ons on the buttons or the tabs which takes us to other pages.
