One column attitude

I find black and white layouts so sexy: especially when, like in this case, text is center aligned, set in a large column, with big leading and with small, lovely serifed numerals.

As for the contents, Inventory Magazine is a trendy publication dedicated to featuring on some of the most inspiring and talented people in the industry, as well as editorials, reviews and original photography.

Zaraillustrates’ minimal layout

Zaraillustrates website's grid and illustrations

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.

In fact:

  • 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.
