Thumbnail of CSS exercise - Sinister Poker Game

mondrian inspired

This design was influenced by the art of the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian whose artwork often consisted of a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors. Throughout the design I also used the Golden Section, an aesthically pleasing formula often used by artists and architects obtained by using math and a value known as Phi.

This design uses images of cards and skeletons to convey a dangerous and dark poker game. There are images from a collection of cards that have a death theme. I also used a very dark background with cards falling to support the hellish feel of the piece.

Pet Sitters Site Redesign Thumbnail 1

sit-n-stay design 1

The goal here was to redesign the Home Page of a local small business. I selected Sit-n-Stay Pet Sitters because I am familiar with their business and know that their site could use a freshening-up. I was able to achieve a more professional look by eleminating unecessary design elements. Using a limited color palette enabled me to emphasize the cat and dog in the image.

In the second design for this site I utilized a similiarly clean layout. This time I chose cute images to convey a happier, less formal look. My thought was to use the same pets in different poses on each internal page. The use of natural colors were selected because of their warm and welcoming feeling that a pet owner would associate with their pets.

Newspaper Redesign Exercise

tribune & georgian online

Thechallenge for this exercise was to improve upon the design of an existing small online newspaper. I chose to build the site upon a twelve column grid, this allowed an improved reorganization of content, but also permitted a fair amount of flexibilty in the grouping of content. Color and placement were used for content emphasis. The result is a more intuitive, easier to navigate design.
