Inspiration web design

I really get stuck with my web design although it is not returned yet. This website is pretty cool and pictures turn in color as we click the picture in the bottom. The huge black and white graphic as a background can be inspirational for my design.

The idea is that the colors of fonts fit the graphic a lot. Look at the red scarf, blue shirt and the “story town;” they fit!  Choices of fonts fit the graphic; the serif corresponds to the curve of the hat.

A pretty awesome design, I am in love with it. Do you notice that the main graphic in the middle has some texture, little lines across the picture. The moon corresponds with the circle buttons. The gradient is so great in this design. Just love it!

Isn’t it look simple, fresh and comfortable? Information is clearly shown, too. I like the graphic!

The uses of colors are so lovely and fit the content a lot. Most of the pictures include green and pink, which also show a sense of consistency of this web design. The font used here convey a feeling of brightness, making people feel warm.

Since it is a relatively abstract graphic, I add a subtitle to explain what the poster is trying to convey. I darken the headline to distinguish it from subtitle. I pull up the event information so that it is with the headline and subtitle, but the distance between event information and main graphic indicates that it is less important, but still needed if needed.

A cool poster

I think it is just cool, using letter, number and very simple graphics to make this “cool-face” poster.

Liao Xiaoyang- Resume – Redo- FINAL

I spent a lot of time on my wordmark. I want my wordmark to be easily recognized and dominate on the page, but it won’t confuse people by distinguishing my last name and first name. Finally, the most straight way I can think of is to write my name in accordingly, first name, last name. “X” is a quite interesting letter, so I make it a little playful, using different font.

I align all my information, such as experience, education and skills, with my wordmark. I bold all important titles, such as “Department Chair” and “Director.” I make events small sizes, trying to make them like a subtitle.
