One way to produce an immersive experience is to lay out your content such that it takes up the entire screen and even beyond, so your audience is compelled to explore every part. It can get a little overwhelming, so the trick is for each item to be compelling enough but still also cohesive when combined side by side with the rest.
This week’s featured designs will give you access to new opportunities not found on your typical job sites. Made for designers, by designers, let’s see how these sites address your needs.
Another round of video backgrounds used in the wild in this week’s set of featured sites.
The clean, minimal, and handcrafted feel that has dominated the current generation of web design is probably most apparent in this crop of websites. Time to take some notes on their attention to detail in building an interface that’s familiar to us all.
Remember when adding circular elements to your design was a novelty and a breakthrough thanks to CSS3? These days it’s not all that surprising to see them, but this week’s featured sites take it to the next level with interactions and layouts that spin, rather than just look round.
In this limelight this week are sites whose companies develop games for a living. It’s interesting to see how varied all their styles are, as reflected in their homepage designs.
The sites we’re discussing this week have translucent markings and shapes floating on top of the main content, as though they’ve been annotated with bright, neon highlighter markers. Do they add new depth to the designs or do they look distracting?
Featured this week are sites that offer beautifully crafted print publications in the realm of design, with very familiar names at the helm.
Robotic doesn’t mean drab, boring, or lifeless. Not with these featured site designs for the week.
