A transparent navigation menu with sketched, hieroglyphics-like icons, floats over the stunning graphics of Bully studio’s portfolio.
Here you are a classy, finely shaped tab menu from Weightshift, a small studio based in San Francisco.
Though we loved this web site on the whole (the typography is great and, generally, you can catch a meticulous attention behind every detail), we liked the most the quite vertically compressed menu (since the so-called web 2.0, we usually can spot only gargantuan tabs navigation) with small rounded corner, polished by graceful overlapping circles and subdued mouse over effects.
An effective, minimal and charming way to introduce your studio, your work or the philosopy underlying your materspieces could be writing it in a short introduction (or simply summarizing it with a witty quote). Even if you’re a vector virtuoso or a photoshop goddess, a nicely written text may be the way to distinguish yourself (your firm, your business, your personal recreational webpage) from many others and to make your website memorable.
Artel is a Russian design bureau with a great logos and identities portfolio and a really nice navigation system.
We loved the tab menu because of the rounded cut just above the logo and the way the single tab displays a punch card, once you click on it.
Roughly from French:
We’re sorry but the page you’ve been looking for it’s not been found. We suggest you to go back to the web site, because here there’s not a shadow of any bright idea.
The metaphor is unusual and the good copy matches perfectly the illustration: this error page is simply…brilliant!
Yummy Gum is a small Dutch graphic design studio: its bubble-logo will change color every time a page is refereshed/loaded.
I immediately loved Modalinc low-fi icons, an U.S. study of interaction and design.
