Texture, Color, and Detail

February 18, 2009


This Website (no longer available) caught my eye yesterday as I was looking through entries on CSS Mania. I posted this screenshot on Flickr. I did a pretty extensive commentary on Flickr in the summary and using the notes feature to point out different elements on the page.

What I really like about this site is the sense of dimension that it has. The designer used texture, shadow, and highlights to make this design come alive. A couple of horizontal elements look like they fold behind the main content area and this adds to the illusion of dimension. I also liked the color scheme of this site.  Nice work FortySeven Media.

Sidenote – I was excited a couple of weeks ago when CSS Mania posted my design for Big-Break.com.
