You can use the same symbol for your website pagination as for its menu navigation, provided that you change its orientation.
Thanks to Jesse Kirsh, a brilliant designer from Portland, for providing this bright specimen of contact form.
A cut in the N‘s stem brilliantly creates the I of Nemeth Interactive’s logo.
I couldn’t shake this feeling that I was missing something in my collection of navigation, so today I picked for you this fine example of textual accordion menu.
The first thing you’ll need to do, when meeting an unknown audience, is obviously to introduce yourself.
You’ll have to do it also in your website. In this case, illustrator and webdesigner Jacob Souva is introducing himself using an old photo of himself as a kid, framed by concentric circles, conveying a warm and friendly feeling.
Dropr is a multimedia collective portfolio AKA a hosting platform that aims to bring together artists of all media & backgrounds by crushing the walls between different art fields.
The HTML droplets falling down in the website’s home page are quite a subtle and poetic effect.
Interesting navigation bar displayed on Fuzzco’s portfolio.
This piece is taken from the web design portfolio and project gallery of Rhode Island based web designer Jeremy Girard.
Vintage inspired dropcaps polish the impeccable typography of Adrian Pellettier‘s blog portfolio.
An useless yet fascinating navigation, replicating Google Maps UI, welcomes you to Kelli Anderson‘s website.
A brilliant logo concept consisting in a single continuous line drawing a light bulb.
A nice example of a heavily styled 3D pagination, with strong but clear hover effects.
Mixing different weight and style and, possibly, different typefaces, is one of the most ancient trick in modern typography. The risk is that sometimes text is not enjoyable or readable, but we think this is not the case.
Pagination and main navigation links are both displayed on a beveled toolbar, duplicated at the bottom page: I think it’s really clever how Eico’s design have unified in one place back/next button, category, year, name of the project and link back to the portfolio’s home page.
Is Sucram logo’s grinning or grinding? Love the way the stereotype of the smiling clown is turned upside down by this very talented designer.
With a smooth, nice transition, thin layout guides drop into place while fancy typographic headlines fill columns blank spaces: Balsamstudio‘s portfolio provides an outstanding layout, simple and elegant, while showcasing a lot of interesiting identity projects.
Have you ever thought about displaying your resume as statistical data, shaped as nice infographics?
Well, Oli Gosling, web developer based in Bristol, did it with beautiful and memorable results.
You’re looking for an Owl and what you get? A one-toothed cat photograph.
That’s what happens when you run into Meagan Fisher’s inspirational 404 error page.
Explosively colourful call-outs and layout elements from Kidd81‘s portfolio help to warm up a gray day in Milan.
We love so much Fudge Studios’ layout that we wonder whether we have to be happy for or just loathe the fact a new website is coming up.
This website simulates a photoshop (or generally a graphic editor) workspace soooo well that becomes difficult, if not impossible, writing what we’ve liked most.
The favicon shaped as a precise picker cursor? The cyan guides? The transparency grid used as a background or the cursor’s blinking in the fake text-area?
I know it sounds quite naive but I do love the way images scroll down when you roll the mouse wheel: ok it’s a quite obvious ajax effect, but, nonetheless, in this context, looks like a very smart choice.
Zara Picken‘s a Bristol-based illustrator that brings us back to the magic Fifties with her clean, marvelous illustration style.
Aside from that, we definitely love Zara’s website structural rigor: broad wide spaces are cut into columns and rows simply by black/gray lines while circle shapes of various kinds play a major role in grabbing user’s attention and to mitigate the otherwise too rigid elements organisation.
- a black circle is used to create this website’s logo;
- semi-circle shapes, jutting out from the layout , emphasize slideshow’s arrows;
- big gray bullets encircle posts date.
Odopod is a extremely creative digital agency and its site certainly is characterized by the choice of a strong and unusual color.
The menu has a hover effect with an outside expansion of the block that I find very pleasant for its fluency; a similar movement, but downwards, is activated when you expand a link.
