So beautiful. The colors, the simplicity, the quirky little details, the navigation, everything. Eugh, so good. Go to the site. Just do it.
Anyone know who designed this site?
This website design for Percival is the best store website I think I’ve ever seen. And really, when I think about the all the web designs I’ve seen lately, this is pretty high on that list as well.
Designer of the Week, Veteran’s Day/Remembrance Day Edition: Hat Trick, for their identity for IWM
One of my favorite rebrands this year belongs to IWM, which stands for Imperial War Museums. Previously, there was one solid identity that had an aesthetic specific to WW2. Not many people realized there were actually five museums and they didn’t just cover the second World War…it didn’t help that the name was actually Imperial War Museum (no S!) either.
The new branding is much more graphical than the previous branding, and the mark can be seen in basically everything: the website features the three blocks, as do bags and other takeaways. It is very unified, and I always enjoy a good unified brand. I also appreciate the mark in itself; it’s said that it’s supposed to represent how war can push and pull, shaping people’s lives. It’s also said to show the I, the W, and the M. While it’s not that easy to see, I bet many people will get that.
And to all the veterans out there: thank you.
Many of my designer friends have been all about this site for the last week and I think it’s a great idea. Drinkify gives you recommendations for drinks based on what band/artist you’re currently listening to. Many of the responses are pretty accurate for the band (like PBR for Pearl Jam and straight Bombay Gin with an umbrella for Daft Punk [hey, Bombay glows in a blacklight!]) and some are just hilarious (an ounce of Red Bull, shaken and garnished with pickled asparagus for NSYNC). Definitely give this a go. Heck, tonight probably wouldn’t be a bad night…
Even if you’ve done it several times, this article about cleaning up your web designs before they’re given to the programmer will be a great refresher course.
I seriously cannot believe how beautiful this Chicago butcher’s website is! I wish all butchers had sites like this!
Isn’t this wonderful? I think it’s wonderful. Classy with a bit of spunk and timeless but modern. Fantastic. It breathes new life into the restaurant.
