Here you'll be able to read about the design proces. (when the site is online, ill' make a shout. I will run through the five main mockups, and describe design decesions for each one of them.
The background is dark, with a subtle pattern, and a soft light to give another dimension, and to give the viewer the impression that i pay a lot of attention to small details.
I added a dark header and footer, to seperate the content added in the next steps. as a detail i added a one-pixel black line to give the impression that the header and footer actually overlays the main content.
Furthermore i italized the text "The ninja is currently preparing his next MOVE" as a metaphor for "moving". I used the type 'Slice n Dice' for the MOVE-part, to tell that the move is not a "regular" one, but more like "special", and thereby the special font.
Social buttons added in the footer, with exactly the same width as the content in the middle, to draw a stronger connection between those two.
The noise pattern is here brought back to the scene in the context of the footer and the header, but only on the half part of it nearest to the center of the page, which gives the clean and crunchy finish i wished.
- Im' looking forward to realise the design of this page in browsers. (keep in touch for updates)
